By: Tyler Andrews

Agromeck Co-Photo Editor, Chris Rupert:

This week’s Photo of the Week is a portrait by Tyler Andrews. Tyler did a great job with this portrait and it is a great example of using multiple strobes in a portrait. Tyler took this portrait outside of Bostian Hall while the level of ambient light was at a minimum. To supplement the lack of natural light, Tyler used several strobes to light up the subjects and background and the darkened background really helps the subjects pop.”

Photo by Joseph Phillips

Agromeck Photo Editor, John Joyner said:

This week’s Photo of the Week is Joseph Phillips’s feature photo from last Monday’s Technician. This photo is a great example of what we look for in a feature photo; Joseph found an interesting story and depicted it in a visually interesting way. The use of light in the photo is extremely strong; Joseph used the light table as a softbox, pulling the reader’s eye onto the subject’s face. Looking around your environment for interesting light sources is a great way to find a better photo, and that’s exactly what Joseph did here.”

Technician Photography Editor Natalie Claunch said:

Photo of the week goes to Tyler Andrews for his shot of the Panoramic Dance Project dress rehearsal. Tyler was able to effectively expose the photo for highlights and shadows, creating a dramatic effect to the moment of the dancer balancing herself. Her pose fills the entire frame, and creates a leading line from her leg to her outstretched fingers that add to the intimacy of the moment.

Freshman forward T.J. Warren walks out as he’s introduced before the game against Florida State University in PNC Arena Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2013. Warren had 31 points and 13 rebounds in the Wolfpack’s 84-66 win to Seminoles. Photo by Ryan Parry.


Technician Deputy Photo Editor John Joyner said:

Ryan did a very nice job here of capturing a moment that is familiar in a very different way. In order to get this shot, Ryan positioned himself on the opposite side of the bench from every other member of the media in attendance – including The News & Observer and myself. In doing so, he captured a familiar event – the player introductions – in a new and very impactful way. The colors, framing, and lighting all lend a very serious, almost somber tone to the frame and places significant emphasis on T.J. Warren; appropriate considering he had one of the best games of his career. In short, this is an example to look to in both sports and other assignments – go to new places, and find new perspectives – it’s often how you get the best photos.

Katrina Colucci, a freshman in chemical engineering, tests out each chair in Hunt Library Jan. 9. "All of the chairs are cool. They're different. I've never seen any like that," Colucci said. "Some look really awesome, while some look extremely uncomfortable."

Hunt Library Chairs, By Max Hodge

Agromeck photo editor Katherine Hoke said:

The way Max framed this photo is both interesting and dynamic. The spiral line of the chair draws viewers’ eyes around the image and towards subject. Max did a nice job of filling the frame while still providing context. The photo also works well because it spotlights a student’s experience in the newly constructed Hunt Library on Centennial Campus.

2010-2011 Editor-in-Chief Susannah Brinkley accepted Agromeck’s fifth consecutive Pacemaker award at the Associated Collegiate Press Convention in Chicago, Ill. Saturday night.

The 2011 Agromeck was one of only seven college yearbooks to receive the award, which is considered by many to be collegiate journalism’s highest honor.

“I’m so humbled that I could continue the trend and produce another award-winning book,” Brinkley said. “It was an incredible experience and I am brimming with pride at the work my staff, advisers and I did together — I couldn’t have done this without their help.”

The 2012 Agromeck, edited by Kathryn Glaser, won first place in the convention’s “Yearbook Best of Show” competition. The 2012 Yearbook Pacemaker winners will be announced at the 2013 convention in New Orleans, La.

Agromeck photographers Brent Kitchen and Jordan Moore won ACP photo excellence awards for photographs published in the 2012 edition. Kitchen won first in spot news photography and Moore won fourth in feature photography. Kitchen served as sports editor of the 2011 Agromeck and Moore served as photo editor of the 2012 edition.

Agromeck designer Sarah Stadler won fifth place in infographics for “Occupy the World,” a spread she designed for the 2012 edition. Stadler served as design editor for the 2011 book.
