LA Times In Focus

October 6, 2010 § Leave a comment

The beauty of online and multimedia journalism is that it provides a new platform for photojournalism.  The LA Times does a really good job of making the pictures that accompany their stories a focal point.  Some news outlets’ websites, such as the New York Times for example, use more text than they do pictures on their homepage. Personally, I find the use of pictures, especially on a website, much more captivating than text.

What I enjoyed the most was a great section called Framework. It is a  blog dedicated solely to pictures and videos in the news.  The blog reflects a quote by Matt Thompson featured in Mark Briggs’ book.

“Are we using 1,000 words where a picture should be?”
