Instead of taking a ‘mugshot’ of the subject straight on, Joannah took the photo from above. It is successful because Joannah was able to frame the ashen cross with the subject’s hair and eyes without a distracting background, leaving no doubt as to the subject of the photo. Another reason this feature is photo of the week is because it covers religion — something that is very prevalent on campus but often gets overlooked by Student Media.
