Killing Eagles, by Luis Zapata Technician Photo Editor Sarah Tudor said: We chose Luis’s photo because of its good overall composition and because it captured a good moment in the football game. This photo tells a story — in it, you can clearly see that N.C. State is beating Boston College, so when someone looked at the newspaper, they could see what the focus of the article might be before reading the story.
West Fest, by Alex Canoutas Agromeck Photo Editor Marisa Akers said: Alex’s photo, which ran in Technician Oct. 4, is both well-executed and entertaining. He composed it with the trees, which provided a clean background and the blue weapon framing the action. The emotion captured on the subject’s face is a great example of waiting for the right moment to make a technically good, but boring, photo exciting and unique.
Twelfth Night, by Kevin Cook Technician Photo Editor Sarah Tudor said: Kevin’s photo, of the sound booth, which ran in the Technician Sept. 29, is an excellent example of getting a behind the scenes shot. The assignment was to shoot a play that was going on on-campus. Most people often forget about all the work that goes into a play behind the scenes the actors. Also, Cook utilized the rule of thirds and an interesting angle. Usually tilted angles don’t work well with most photos, but because of the angle of the person in the photo, the tilted look works well.
