Welcome to Framework
Framework, the photography and video blog of the Los Angeles Times, celebrates the power and explores the craft of visual storytelling. The blog highlights the work of Times photojournalists who, frame by frame, document the drama, the emotion and sometimes the humor of life. Framework also aims to serve as a resource hub for photography, multimedia and video enthusiasts who share our passion. We will trade insights and discuss the tools and techniques of telling stories through images.
In addition to the Latest and Explore tabs at the top of the homepage, you’ll find some icons to help you navigate through our various sections. A little farther down, you’ll find links to portfolios from each of the Times photojournalists, where you can get to know our talented staff.
• Our Work: A collection of photography, video and multimedia produced by the visual staff of the Los Angeles Times.
• Learn & Discover: Techniques and approaches from Times photographers and editors. Equipment tips, product reviews, and interesting projects from other newspapers, magazines and websites. Have a technical question, idea or suggestion for a review? Please send us an email.
• From the Archive: Historic photographs from The Times archives.
• Must See: A curated selection of award wining projects by Times photojournalists.
Have a look and let us know what you think.

Congrats on the L.A. Times "Frameworks" launch. It seems very interesting and promising and I wish you and the Framework team every success!
Some criticism – for what it may be worth: Navigation to certain Framework features is a little confusing. I was hoping for some built-in hyperlinks off your opening "Welcome to Framework" page to the different Framework sections (i.e., "Our Work," "Learn and Discover," and "Save The Date" – just to get some idea of how these pages were laid out and what they included. As it was, I couldn't find my way to any of these pages.
I would very much enjoy reading (or hearing) short commentary from LAT photogs on how they came to capture certain images.
It would be nice to see "Save The Date" photo opportunities listed by the full southland geographic coverage of the LAT – not all lumped together. I would be willing to contribute to the "Up north" listings covering northwestern L.A. county, Ventura County, and a few of the larger Santa Barbara events.

Thank you for visiting and for your suggestions. We'll be adding some new features in the coming months, including more behind the scenes commentary from Los Angeles Times photojournalists. If you would like to submit event listings for the Ventura/Santa Barbara area, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once again, thanks for looking and we hope you'll be a frequent visitor.

I haven't been able to find "1000 Words" online; what a loss.
