On my sixth day on the job, I was sent out to cover the Boston Bombing. I’m new to the world of journalism. When breaking news happens, you’re immediately dispatched. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, you have to go. It so happens, I was six-half hours away. I covered the Kennard-Dale […]

Deceptive photographs
Shooting victim"  Shelly Witta acts out in pain during the mock shooting drill at York Hospital on Saturday, April 20, 2013

Post by Jason Plotkin This woman looks like she’s in pain, right? Well, looks can be deceiving. And so can photographs.

Post by Jason Plotkin Sometimes I fall in love with an idea for a photo and the execution just doesn’t pay off. The problem is, I don’t always know it when I look at the picture. I was covering the York Revolution yesterday and had an idea to get a photo next to the pitching […]

Lines, lines and more lines in photos

In the background, Kinsley Construction woks on a pier that will carry the rail trail bridge over the Codorus Creek connecting John Rudy Park and York city.
