On any given evening at The Baltimore Sun’s printing plant in Port Covington, tens of thousands of papers hum through the four-story tall press that dates to 1992.

As a relatively new photographer, I was pumped to hear I’d be shooting a couple of Ravens home games this season. For my first one, I found out I’d be covering the Dolphins-Ravens game on Thursday Night Football (October 26th). Back when I was working at The Capital in Annapolis I did a few Navy Football shoots, but I’d never shot any sports at a pro level. The stakes were a lot higher, and honestly, I was pretty nervous the whole day leading up to it.
For the second time this year, activists flooded the streets to promote 72 hours free of killing.
This second ceasefire began just a few hours after the city crossed a dark milestone: By Thursday night, Baltimore had suffered 300 homicides in the first 307 days of the year.
On the second day of the truce, another name was added to the list of victims.
Tony Anthony Mason Jr., 40, an off-duty Washington police officer who lived in Baltimore, was shot and killed early Saturday morning in the Panway/Braddish Avenue neighborhood. A woman who was with him was shot in the leg, police said.

For the Halloween Wknd cover shoot, Baltimore Sun photographer Karl Merton Ferron explains his lighting setup:
“Dual main lights were chosen – one main light, a beauty dish strobe which was softened by a simple white cloth sheet at left; the other, a cowl mounted to direct strobe, pointed down to the off-white floor, only a couple feet away from the platform. A black flag rested against the light between source and camera to knock back any lens flare. A strip box outfitted the third light which feathered the pumpkins – that source bounced off an oversized gold reflector to kick back warmth to accentuate detail in the shadows.”
Models for the shoot were Flash, a 12-year-old Welsh Pembroke Corgi and Winston, an 8-year-old Beagle.
