Photographer's behind-the-scenes photos

Posted September 28, 2010

Being a WRAL.com web editor is great, but I have to admit, part of me has always been fascinated by TV news photography. Since I’m not able to do both jobs, I live vicariously through my co-workers, especially WRAL photojournalist Richard Adkins.

I enjoy following him on Twitter and seeing all the great behind-the-scenes photos he posts, along with his clever tweets. Here are a few of my favorites:
