LA Times Photo Intern: Don’t Bore Editors

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student John Adkisson was the LA Times’ 2010 photography  intern over the summer, and he’s given an interview to the The Visual Student blog at about his time at the Times, revealing what he learned.

“This may seem obvious, but I think the biggest thing that I learned is to not bore the editors.  At that level of editing, they’ve pretty much seen it all.  What they want to see is something they haven’t seen. You don’t necessarily have to perfectly illustrate the story everytime. Making a really graphic or cool frame can engage readers in an otherwise mundane story.  It really pushed me to work situations harder to try and make something different.”
