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.

We will trade insights and discuss the tools and techniques of telling stories through images. Have a look and let us know what you think.
