In a workshop on blogging today, I mentioned that photos make great blog material. Of course, writers (including me) need to remember to use photos, videos and other visual elements in our blogs (like I didn’t in this one). But I noted that some photojournalists have excellent blogs that revolve around visual content — sometimes all photos, sometimes the stories behind photos.
A photojournalist in the workshop asked me for some examples. I provided a few quick ones:
Digital First colleague John Strickler’s Strick’s Pics
My former Cedar Rapids Gazette colleagues’ Refocus blog
The Boston Globe’s The Big Picture
The New York Times’ Lens
Reuters’ Photographers Blog
Look, the staff visual blog of the York Daily Record
I knew I was overlooking some good ones, so I quickly crowdsourced this on Twitter:
