A big part of my first few months at The Sun involved developing, designing, and contributing content for a new blog that features photos, videos and other multimedia in a device agnostic framework. Along with Stokely Baksh, we created the most visited blog in The Sun’s history generating 28 million page views in the first ten months.
“The Darkroom, the photography and video blog of The Baltimore Sun, shines a light on visually captivating stories of our past and present. It showcases the exciting work of our staff, offers tips in the craft, and highlights the emerging community of independent media makers.”
In 2013, The Darkroom won a few prominent MDDC Press Awards: 1st place and Best in Show for “General Website Excellence” and 1st place for “Online Commentary or Blog.”
