I am choosing to work on the Digital Journalism project for the methodology module. I chose this project because I have had a bit of journalism experience this semester as a staff photographer for the Blue and Gray Press. I also took New Journalism with Professor Blair Miller this semester. I’m also attracted to this project because this is the way I typically consume news. I think it will be cool to work on a story for a digital format.
My number one goal for this assignment is to find a topic that is worth reporting on. I know we are able to write about anything, but from my understanding, this should be a way to bring up a problem that needs a solution.
I think the most difficult part of this assignment will be finding the right format to use and finding the right pictures. Under normal circumstances I would take my own photos, but I don’t think it would be wise or even feasible at this point to do that.
