News Writing and Breaking Rules

“In media, there is a rule breaking rule. Creative media professionals often want to break with the predictable conventions of photography and journalistic style. For my part, I agree. If you have a reason to do it, then try a different type of shot framing, an odd cut-away or unnatural nats sound in your story. But break just one rule at a time. Two or more broken rules of composition or journalistic tone show ignorance or vanity.”
-J. Thomas Rogers
