    Photo of the Week | Feb. 4-8

    This week’s Photo of the Week features a skillful action shot by a photographer new to the Student Media photo staff, Swathi Karthik. Swathi was able to capture the NC State Women’s Gymnastics team in the midst of their complex routine that earned yet another Wolfpack win. Sports photos are typically more difficult for new photographers to shoot because of the fast-moving atmosphere. Photo editor Kaydee Gawlik selected this photo as #POTW because of the talent demonstrated by the young photographer. “The most important things for shooting sports is being able to stop motion and avoid blur — which Swathi absolutely nailed as her subject glides through the air. Even…

    Spread of the Deadline | Deadline 5

    Another deadline is finally under wraps for the Agromeck staff. To celebrate, design editor Julia Harrison selected this spread featuring the Wolfpack Men’s Basketball team as our official Spread of the Deadline. “I really like this spread as the photos showcased across the spread feature movement that is engaging and eye-catching. Also, the header image across the top of the page is intriguing as it helps to place the viewer in the setting of the event. This photo features the crowd in PNC Arena during the game, and more effectively conveys the spirited atmosphere of the game,” Julia said. “Not only are the visuals of this spread done very well but…

    Photo of the Week | Jan. 28 – Feb. 1

    An NC State tradition is quickly becoming a bucket-list item for those outside of NC State. This week’s Photo of the Feature is a feature of that bucket list item: The Krispy Kreme Challenge. As a challenger of the KKC, you are to run a total of 5 miles, while wolfing down a dozen Krispy Kreme Original Glazed donuts in between. This week’s #POTW was selected by photo editor Kaydee Gawlik, and is a prime example of “Smiling through the Pain.” “The Krispy Kreme Challenge, despite being an annual thing, isn’t exactly the easiest thing to shoot because of the fast paced nature of the event,” Gawlik says. “ESPECIALLY when…

    Photo of the Week | Jan. 21 – 25

    After a stressful and anxiety-inducing game, hundreds of Wolfpack fans celebrated the defeat of a long time rival. The game against Clemson was an emotional moment for many, especially for the NC State Men’s Basketball game and earned itself a spot as Photo of the Week. Photo editor Kaydee Gawlik chose this photo for a specific reason. “We’re notorious for picking sports photos, but this one is awesome for a very un-sports reason: it captures the raw emotion of the team after Braxton Beverly made a 3-pt buzzer beater to win the game against Clemson,” Gawlik said. “The pure joy and excitement of the moment from everyone (except the ref…

    The Women’s Basketball team has show hard work and dedication this season has earned a winning streak of 17-0 for the Wolfpack. This week’s Photo of the Week pays tribute to the team’s triumph, featuring a shot from the game against Pittsburgh Jan. 10 in Reynolds Coliseum. Photo editor Kaydee Gawlik hand-selected this photo sophomore guard Kai Crutchfield as POTW. “I kind of wish this picture were shot landscape instead of portrait, but I like how tight the shot is. Crutchfield is a vital part of the Women’s offense, and capturing a ‘slower’ moment amidst everything else feels like a breath of fresh air,” Gawlik said. “Even though the focus…

    Latinx Heritage Month began in full swing Sept. 15 and has shown students the culture and liveliness of Latinx people. To honor that liveliness, this photo illustration was chosen by photo editor Kaydee Gawlik for Agromeck’s photo of the week. “This is kind of a common shot that can very easily be overdone or overused, but it knows what it is. It knows it’s a photo illustration,” said Gawlik. “This particular photo recognizes the many facets and colors that can be found  in the history and culture of Latinx Heritage Month and its respective community. When used sparingly, a photo illustration leaves little room for misinterpretation.” To learn more about the…
