A reader sent this note after reading the post about the Middletown (NY) Times Herald-Record closing its 4-person photo department:
As this page [below, from a Sun-Times Media weekly] illustrates, a reporter with an iPhone can tell a story just as well as any photographer. I mean a photojournalist would have missed the wipey board completely.
For that matter, holding a degree in photojournalism myself, I feel I should contact the university I attended and complain that I wasn’t given enough instruction on how to catch the essence of wipey boards.
I’m so disappointed in myself.
