With the development of technology, the traditional media has begun to leave its place to digital atmosphere. Along with the use of digital media, people began to focus on visual materials rather than written texts. In this age when people have shown a lot of interest in visual materials, the photo has entered a new phase. Perhaps the photo has begun to show more interest than ever before. Because, photography is an indispensable part of digital media. Actually, we use photography not only in digital media, but almost in all areas of our lives. Photographs used in the media can clearly show many things the journalist does not write in the news text. In addition, photographs are seen as the most important document of the written news. In today's world where people attach more importance to visual rather than written texts, we can see that the usage of photography is so great that it is underestimated in both printed and internet newspapers. In this study, news photographs used as visual material in both printed and internet newspapers was analyzed by the method of semiotics. Photographs used in printed and internet newspapers for a week was examined and recorded. Then, by determining in which area the photos are used more often, their causes was discussed.
