The content of the story was very powerful. Using audio for the story added emphasis on emotional appeal and personal dimension. The photos also added valuable content. The ability to capture the scenes that later cost men their lives creates deeper value and meaning to the photos. The photo of the camera man on site caught my attention the most. It gives people an image to connect to the lost camera men that the speaker talks about.
