Bugfest, by Natalie Claunch Technician Photo Editor Sarah Tudor said: Natalie’s photo from Bugfest, which ran in the Technician Sept. 13, is a great example of getting a tight shot that still displays what is happening at the event. The boy in the photo is engaged with the bug, but you can also see that Whisnant has other bugs in the background. The photo leads the eye around the photo to get a good understanding of what happened at Bugfest.
Shotgun, by Kevin Cook Agromeck Photo Editor Marisa Akers said: Kevin’s photo, which ran in the Technician Sept. 7, was chosen because of Kevin’s ability to capture an exciting moment and convey emotion to the viewer. Tailgating is frequently seen as a vital part of the “college experience” and his work displays this event for readers of Technician. Because of the angle, the bright blue sky provides a clean backdrop for the subjects and the bright sunlight allowed him to shoot with a fast shutter speed, resulting in a sharply-focused, clear photo.
Salmonella, by Josh Bielick Technician Photo Editor Sarah Tudor said: Josh’s photo, which ran in the Technician Aug. 31, is an excellent example of taking initiative of a photo assignment that did not have a lot of direction. The focus of the photo is clearly the eggs, which is important, because the photo could have easily been on the lab assistant. The photo also depicts the issue of the eggs being studied, which related to the article.
Giving Blood, by Jordan Moore Agromeck Photo Editor Marisa Akers said: Jordan’s photo, which ran in the Technician Monday, Aug. 23, was chosen because of his interesting use of selective focus and low depth of field. Photographers have shot blood donation events over and over again, but Jordan thought about the photo from a different angle and made it stand out from the others that have been taken. The photo shows the interaction between the doctor and patient and focuses on the blood donation itself, without hiding the typical focus point — Cho’s face. Overall, the photo proves that there is always room for creativity, even in repetitive assignments.

[lwegallery] John Cooper Elias, Agromeck yearbook editor: Michele had a tough task this year as the yearbook photo editor, but she did a great job. She managed the photo staff all year, and she helped us produce a high-quality product that we are all proud of. The most impressive thing about Michele was that while she had to deal with managing the photo staff she continued to grow as a photographer and shoot some of the best pictures I have ever seen from her during this year.
N.C. State’s student yearboook, the Agromeck, edited by Mary Beth Hamrick, and its literary and arts magazine, Windhover, were recognized with a Gold Crown Award from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association this spring. This is one of the two highest awards given nationally for college media.
[lwegallery] Saja Hindi, Technician editor: “David Mabe has easily become one of the most essential staff members we have. He is not only a great photographer but is also very dependable. David has also really helped out the section editors with online multimedia and has become a valuable resource to everyone on staff.”
For the second time, the Agromeck yearbook received a Pacemaker award from the Associated Collegiate Press, one of only seven books in the nation to receive that organization’s highest honors.
