This summer’s interns in the Photo Department left The Oklahoman last week after a quick, eight-week internship. Both Miranda Grubbs, who joined us from the University of Colorado, and Mitchell Alcala, who joined us from Oklahoma State University, achieved what we hope for all of our interns. They improved their portfolio of pictures, got more experience with newspaper assignments and most importantly, showed a marked improvement over the internship. Here’s a couple of pictures from Miranda and Mitch that you may or may not have seen this summer. As always, you can see more of our work, and work from our interns, by clicking here.
