Agromeck Co-Photo Editor, Chris Rupert said: This week’s photo of the week was taken by staff photographer John Joyner. To start off, John did a great job framing this photo. He placed the subject, who is facing right, in the left side of the frame. This gives the subject plenty of room and makes it seem like the disc could fly right across the frame. The tight cropping helps focus the reader’s attention on the offense and defense and helps reduce any distracting elements in the photo. Lastly, John made great use of the natural lighting available, which highlights both the subject and the disc.
Agromeck Co-Photo Editor, Chris Rupert said: This week’s photo of the week was taken by Technician photo editor Caide Wooten. This photo shows a side of N.C. State normally unseen to most students. Caide did an outstanding job framing this photo. He broke the traditional rule of thirds by placing the subject in the center of the frame, but thanks to the symmetry of the scene, ultimately adds to the photo. Caide took this photo below eye level, allowing him to place the chicks and their feeder in the foreground of the frame as well as creating leading lines with the rafters, leading right to the subject.
Agromeck Co-Photo Editor, Chris Rupert said: This week’s photo of the week was taken by staff photographer Sorena Dadgar of participants in Holi, a festival celebrating Krishna. Several photographers covered this event but Sorena’s photo stood out from the rest. In this photo Sorena managed to capture both great emotion from the festival’s attendees but also great action as they collectively throw colored starch into the air. Many of the photographs from this event were of one or a few people, but by shooting wide she was able to capture the sheer scale of the celebration.
Agromeck Co-Photo Editor, Chris Rupert said: This week’s photo of the week was taken by Agromeck co-photo editor Ryan Parry during the third round of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Ryan did a great job covering the whole tournament but this photo really stands out of the bunch. In sports photography; there are three types of shot that are critical to get, action, reaction, and emotion. Ryan did a good capturing all three in this photo. This photo tells the story of the game where N.C. State, the underdog, unexpectedly defeated number one seed Villanova.
