The Julio Palmaz Award for Innovation in Healthcare and the Biosciences was launched in San Antonio by BioMed SA, a non-profit corporation founded in 2005 to help grow and promote the city’s thriving healthcare and bioscience sector. The award honors individuals who have made significant contributions to advances in these fields. Dr. Palmaz accepted the first award, named in his honor, at BioMed SA’s Annual Meeting in 2006.
This year’s recipient is Dr. Francisco Cigarroa and here are some images from the celebration:
In an effort to get better control over lighting I used a ratcheting tie down to steady and secure a lightstand to concrete pillars that happened to be in an optimum location. Securing them in this fashion eliminated a need for sand bags and removed the hazard of expanded base legs to passers by since this venue is tight on space. I faced two Canon EX600RTs toward the stage from either side of the main table and faced two toward the speaker and audience (~45 degrees) to get some light back into the audience for candids. The edge/rim lighting adds something special to the shots of the speakers on stage.
