    Photo of the Week | April 22-26

    Technician Photo Editor Natalie Claunch said: I picked Joannah Irvin’s photo because it is behind-the-scenes coverage of an event N.C. State hosts every year– Art to Wear. We usually see runway shots from this show, which highlight the fashion, but this photo shows us the preparation before the big moment. Joannah’s choice of framing includes the sparkles and shiny collar on Elizabeth, so we can tell this is no ordinary makeup job. Placing the makeup artist in the upper right corner and not leaving us with just a floating hand with a brush was also an excellent touch that leads us right to Elizabeth’s face.

     Agromeck photo editor Katherine Hoke said: Greg Wilson’s photo is a great example of what a feature photo should look like. He captured different, visually striking and relevant student activity in a creative way. Not only did Greg go off campus to get this shot, but he suspended himself in the air above and behind the subject. This allowed him to include both the climber and the belayer in the frame. This gives the viewer a perspective that even those who were rock climbing with Massey would not have seen. The photo is relevant because of the caption. In the most stressful time of the semester, rock climbing is how Massey finds peace.

    Technician Deputy Photo Editor Ryan Parry said: This week’s photo of the week goes to Technician Photo Editor Natalie Claunch’s picture of Jake Armstrong preparing to make an outfield catch at the Virginia Tech baseball game. We don’t often capture the moments in the outfield, but when we do, this is how they should be done. The moment captured is clearly one that shows that Armstrong is about to make a catch and the base runner in the foreground provides more clarity for the situation. The arm of the runner provides somewhat of a framing effect on Armstrong and draws your eye toward the action that’s going on in the outfield. Natalie…

    Technician Deputy Photo Editor John Joyner said: Greg Wilson did a nice job here of thinking outside the box to get this shot. Using a GoPro, he was able to get the shot from an angle that would have been very hard to get otherwise. Getting a shot from onboard the bike lent an intimacy to the photo that a shot from the third person would not have had. Additionally, the moment shown, with the bus passing on the left and a car parked ahead, adds an almost claustrophobic element to the photo. These elements combine to make a strong photo taken from an unusual perspective, and this week’s photo of…

    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.
