ALL ABOUT PHOTOJOURNALISM
Photojournalism is a particular form of journalism (the collecting, editing, and presenting of news material for publication or broadcast) that creates images in order to tell a news story. It is now usually understood to refer only to still images, but in some cases the term also refers to video used in broadcast journalism.
Another vitally important part of photojournalism is accuracy. This means what is in the frame is what happened. The photojournalist is ethically bound (while many fall short of this ideal) not to change the story. Power lines shouldn't be cloned out. More smoke must not be added to a fire scene.
They both use cameras and possess the skill to use those cameras to capture their intended subject.
This is one of the examples of how to capture photos that can be used in photojournalism.
This is another example of police brutality.
TIPS for budding photojournalist by times news snapper BEN GURR:
1: Photographers have to be totally familiar with their equipment.
2: Study your subject
3: Use the light
4: Don't influence or “mock up” your subjects.
5: The camera is a simple tool: do not get carried away with gadgets.
6: Advances in camera technology mean that mistakes are rare but if you do make one, learn from it.
7: The use of computer software to enhance images is overrated and overused.
8: Captions need to enhance and explain your picture and must be 100 per cent accurate. Always check the spelling of names.
9: Talk to people: they are full of useful information.
10: Your award-winning pictures are useless if they are not seen by the picture desk before deadline. Understand how to transmit your images in all situations.
