Duy’s photo from the track team’s loss at the Sun Belt Championships really captures that disappointment of defeat in sports. Sometimes, a victory doesn’t always result in the strongest image. The team put in a solid showing regardless and Duy and JR did great work from Alabama.
Sorayah hopped on the arrests Tuesday of two Arlington High School students for making terroristic threats in the wake of the deadly school shootings in Florida.
This story was worthy of our coverage for several reasons: it’s nearby, it’s a piece of a bigger national story, Arlington Police were involved (and we cover Arlington), students who attend UTA may have siblings at Arlington High, those students are future UTA students, etc.
In short, what happens in any educational institution related to gun control and terroristic threats is news. Safety in our schools—high school or college–is a big story.
“Engineering students strut their stuff in fashion show”
This captures the lighthearted tone of the story and features some fun alliteration as well.
Allee captured a nice moment from the Engineers Week fashion show of a student decked out in all his nerd glory. Great reaction.
Elmer really worked the room at the Maverick Speaker Series. He shot from up high, he got a nice tight crowd shot and he captured a variety of angles from the event. Good work!
It’s been a strong few days for multimedia. Let’s challenge ourselves to widen the scope of every assignment we shoot. Stay longer, experiment with angles, lighting and composition. We need to be shooting much more than we are. Don’t be afraid to get in tight or to pull back and shoot an atmospheric overall. Every assignment is a chance to grow as a photographer and to give our readers more. We need multiple photos from assignments, enough for a gallery. And turn in all of your images. We can’t see where you need help if you don’t turn anything in.
If you have any doubt of the power of a good photo displayed well, look at our print edition today.
