What are the techniques in photography?
— the images have meaning in the context of a recently published record of events.
— the situation implied by the images is a fair and accurate representation of the events they depict in both content and tone.
— the images combine with other news elements to make facts repeatable to the viewer or reader on a cultural level.
Example of Photojournalism.
Photojournalism is a form of journalism in which stories are presented mainly through photographs rather than words. So particular form of journalism (collecting, editing and publishing or broadcast) creates images in order to tell a news story.

What are the different compositions in photography?
In my opinion it will be good for the beginners. That is because by copying composition in photograph, it will be easy for them to take nice pictures or photos. However it is okay to not to follow for the advance people because they will have their own tectonics in taking a pictures.

Is photo journalism photography and journalism?
1) Cropping
2) Back ground
3) View point
Photo journalism is a mix of photograph and journalism. So it is not 100% the same as photography and also it is not 100% the same as journalism. However there is a similarity that can found in both photograph and journalism
Cropping is a one of the process to fix or improve picture. So you just remove the unnecessary part out and use only important part.

Natural frames are such as trees, archways and holes. By placing these around the edge of the composition you help to isolate the main subject from the outside world. The result is a more focused image which draws your eye naturally to the main point of interest.
Imagines are divided into 9 equal segments. To take a picture using a rule of third method, you should put most important object inside the right or left six equal segments.
Placing your main subject off-center like the rule of thirds method. But you should balance the "weight" of your subject by including another object of lesser importance to fill the space unlike the rule of thirds..
This method is one of the easiest method. You just need to look for the objects which forms a straight, diagonal, curvy, zigzag or radical.
Pattern is also one of the easy method to use. You just need to look for the pattern in our life which are naturally made or hand made.
Viewpoint has a massive impact on the composition of our photo. Rather than just shooting from eye level, consider photographing from high above, down at ground level, from the side, from the back, from a long way away, from very close up, and so on.
Camera has a tendency to flatten the foreground and background, and this can often ruin an otherwise great photo. this problem is usually easy to overcome at the time of shooting - look around for a plain and unobtrusive background and compose your shot so that it doesn't distract or detract from the subject.
You can create depth in a photo by including objects in the foreground, middle ground and background. The human eye naturally recognizes these layers and mentally separates them out, creating an image with more depth.
Detail is one of the common and easy skill. You just need to look for an object or things, then take a picture of it.
