Photos

There’s no I in feature

The occasional solo shot is nice, but mainly it’s all about the timeless interaction between two human faces. Or, failing that, between two human faces and a computer screen.

Comp sci front

Lei Li, left, and Kelly Lu, both computer science students working on their second bachelor’s degrees, collaborate on a classroom project Wednesday.

Someone over my shoulder at the paper liked the above shot because of the repetition of form — one pair of people with a laptop in the foreground, and a matching set in the background. I hadn’t even noticed that, but he was right. Is it possible that I’ve finally internalized this basic tenet of good photography, so that I do it without even thinking about it? Nah. I got lucky.

Kelley Cartwright, left, a graduate student of mathematics, and Bruce Langdon, a junior math major, work together on a computer science project Wednesday.
