sbp scrum, round one

This past Thursday night I shot the annual announcement of the results of the Student Body Elections here at A&M. The election commission always holds an event in Academic Plaza where the results are announced, name by name, live. All the various candidates and many of their supporters show up and so it turns into a scrum.

The big news is usually the results of the Student Body President race. The winner must have more than 50% of the votes to win and so there is almost always a run-off between the two top candidates. This year there were four names in contention and so The Batt stuck a photographer with each one. Above is candidate Ben Debayle, who will be in the run-off election along with candidate Eric Beckham.

I tried dragging my shutter and it worked out surprisingly well. Hooray for good experiments.
