Photo of the Week | Feb. 4-8

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

Agromeck photo editor Katherine Hoke said: Ryan’s environmental portrait of Fullsteam Brewery’s Chris Davis is dramatic and well-executed. By photographing the subject in a storage room rather than at the bar, the viewer gets to see a part of the brewery they might not normally have access to. Davis’s confident position on the kegs makes… Read more »

Photo of the Week | Jan. 14-18

Technician photo editor Natalie Claunch said: Instead of uploading a safe picture of the Vanzant behind the podium, Chris captured a moment that portrayed the passion of the speaker. This gives us a much better idea of Vanzant’s personality and is visually interesting. Chris placed Vanzant on the right third and used a relatively shallow depth of… Read more »

Photo of the Week | Jan. 7-11

Agromeck photo editor Katherine Hoke said: The way Max framed this photo is both interesting and dynamic. The spiral line of the chair draws viewers’ eyes around the image and towards subject.

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.

Photo of the Week | Sept. 20 to 26

Circus, by Luis Zapata Agromeck Photo Editor Marisa Akers said: Luis’ photo, taken in downtown Raleigh during SparkCon, gave Technician readers a glimpse of student involvement in the local community, off campus.
