2015 Daily Lobo Journalism Bootcamp, day two

Day two this year was all about thinking visually. Students heard from design and photo professionals and then tried their hands at photo editing. Later, they recieved individual portfolio reviews and critiques.


  1. To start the day, students heard from Carlos Ayulo, managing editor for presentation at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, about how the paper covered events in Ferguson last year. He spoke about design considerations for both print and the web as news about the shooting death of Michael Brown unfolded.
  2. After a break, Daily Lobo photo coach Mark Holm spoke about making and choosing the best visual elements to tell the story. Students then broke into groups and edited groups of photos.
  3. To end the day, students signed up for portfolio reviews from local professionals.
