Spokane’s The Spokesman-Review is what I call a photo-friendly newspaper. The editors there, those in management and the trenches, get it about using photography and telling community stories effectively.
Colin Mulvany who used his still camera at that paper for a number of years has now shifted to using his video camera to create Video Journal, a terrific video blog or vlog.
The stories are almost always community oriented. They are edited with great precision and carried me from one video post to another because the narrative is so compelling in each of them. I recommend a broad-band connection, though a lo-bandwidth version is also conveniently available.
According to Melissa Lyttle, “Finding The Frame” is a series of posts on the Video Journal site “where a Spokesman-Review photojournalist gets to talk about how a picture came together, and the audio gives you some insight into what they were thinking when they shot it.”[Tip o’ the hat to A Photo A Day]
