While interning at NBCNews.com in Fall 2016, my main task was to create photo galleries. I would either get a gallery request from the other photo editors or pitch my own gallery ideas based on the news of the day and photographs moving through the wire. In October 2015, tensions over Jerusalem's Old City erupted into violence between Israelis and Palestinians. I was tasked with creating five different slideshows over that time period complied of images from wire services such as AP, Reuters, Getty and EPA. The slideshow featured here shows the continuing conflict more than a month after the initial waves of violence. In addition to selecting images, I wrote headlines for both the website and social, complied the accompanying gallery summary and edited picture captions. I also meta tagged the gallery for SEO and promoted the gallery on @NBCNewsPictures Twitter account.
