This week's RAW photo in G

Posted by Teresa Hanafin December 31, 2008 04:29 PM

This week, it was a black-and-white photo by Mary Robichaud of Billerica showing a North End resident feeding pigeons -- the winner of our September "My Neighborhood" contest -- that ran in the Globe's G section.

He's got friends in low places
A recent contest on RAW calling for photos with the theme of "My Neighborhood" drew hundreds of entries depicting everything from suburban street parades to rural landscapes. RAW readers judged this black-and-white portrait by Billerica resident Mary Robichaud tops: She called it "Paesan and his Picciones," and it depicts a man in the North End feeding pigeons on a warm summer day. Mary's camera settings were 1/350 sec., f/3.5, ISO 800, with a lens focal length of 25.7mm.


An inside take

A couple of days after Amanda Galvin-Johnston's photo ran on the inside back cover of G, a picture by Globe photographer Dina Rudick was published as a "Parting Shot" feature (G runs an events-related photo every Friday). The photo itself was intriguing enough; but what made the feature of even more interest to amateur photographers was Dina's caption, which outlined her thought process as she composed the photo. Additionally, I found details about her camera settings attached to the photo on our internal photo server:

A close-up of a leaf by Amanda Galvin-Johnston, our very first Photographer of the Week, graced the pages of the Globe's G section last week.

Amanda Galvin-Johnston Leaf

The text says: "A light summer drizzle had just ended when Amanda Galvin-Johnston, a recent RAW Photographer of the Week, noticed that the raindrops on the plants in her Cotuit backyard were glistening. She grabbed her digital SLR, set it to macro mode, and captured this image of water droplets on a leaf (note the drops even on the blade of grass in the background). She had her 18-55mm lends at a focal length of 55mm, and used an f/stop of 5.6 and ISO 320."

"Boy wonder" in G

A photo of his nephew by Dennis P. Sheehan of Boston, part of a critique by Globe photographer John Tlumacki, made the Globe's G section this week.



Another RAW photo in G

I was talking to the Globe Living/Arts editors about tomorrow's RAW photo that will run in G when I realized I had never posted last week's image of the page. If you missed it in print, we ran the October "Get Close" winner, "Green Eye" -- a photo taken by Faye Maier of Scarborough, Maine, of her cat Tilly.



This week's "G" photo

The RAW Dawg whose photo was published in the Globe's "G" section today was Caitlin Robbins of West Newton, whose photo from Cape Verde was praised by Globe photographer Dina Rudick when she did a portfolio critique of Cait's work last month.

Here's how the page looked in print:

Week 2 of RAW in "g"

Posted by Teresa Hanafin November 13, 2008 03:01 PM

RAW Dawg Chris Wraight of Southborough became the second lucky duck to have one of his photos featured in the "g" section of the Globe.

Chris's photo, which ran Wednesday, was submitted as part of our call for fall sports action shots; his image captured Katie Campbell, a senior center back for the Algonquin Regional High School Tomahawks field hockey team, taking a free hit during a Midland Wachusett A game against visiting Fitchburg on Oct. 7. Chris shot this at f/2.8, 1/4,000 of a second, ISO 250, with his lens at 300mm.

RAW in print

Several of you have asked if any of the best photos on the site -- those by the Photographers of the Week, for example -- would be printed in the Globe. Thus far, the answer has been no -- until today.

The Globe's new feature section, "g", pulls together all of the content that falls under the broad umbrella of Living/Arts: Food, Movies, Music, Calendar, Sidekick, comics, TV listings, etc. The inside back cover of "g" will display a rotating set of features; for example, "Party Lines" by Bill Brett -- photos taken at social events around the region -- will run every Tuesday. And every Wednesday belongs to RAW.

Now, if somebody buys an ad for that spot, then the feature gets pre-empted. That happened to us last Wednesday. And if somebody buys an ad in that spot to run from now until next spring, well, your fame will have been short-lived.

But enjoy it while you can. The photo that we chose to feature today came from Nancy Bray of Harwich, who was one of our early Photographers of the Week. Here's how it looked in print; if you'd like to see it up close, just plop your loose change down for a copy of today's Globe. (If you live in Harwich, don't bother; Nancy has already bought every copy in town.)

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
