    Photo of the Week | April 1-5

    Students from universities across the state gathered at the Paul Derr Track to participate in Raleigh Relays on Friday, March 29. The awesome shots captured by our photography staff made this event an easy choice for Photo of the Week. Photo editor Kaydee Gawlik chose this photo in particular because of the “lighting, patterning of the people, and the splish splashin’ of the water!” To see more cool action shots at events like these, order your copy of the Agromeck here.

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    While Raleigh was left mostly unscathed by Hurricane Florence’s appearance over the weekend, certain parts of the Triangle, such as the Raleigh Rose Garden, was not so fortunate. We decided to feature the outcome of Hurricane Florence as this week’s photo of the week to show how natural disasters can affect the community. “This photo really puts into perspective the scale of hurricane destruction,” said photo editor Kaydee Gawlik. If you or another student you know is struggling as a result of the hurricane, visit the Pack Essentials website for a list of available resources. Click here.
