PHOTOJOURNALISM DEFINED

Photographs that are made and published in a timely manner to convey news and information that informs the public

Reporting with a camera

Emphasis on “journalism”

Records real people in real situations without any manipulation

WHERE DO YOU GET IDEAS?

Read the newspaper

Watch television news

Read magazines

Keep up with activities/issues in your community

Talk to your neighbors

Keep your eyes open

Localize national stories

HOW DO YOU MAKE COMPELLING PHOTOS?

Research your subject

The more information available, the better the potential for compelling photography

Put a human face on an abstract issue

Show the issue, not the meeting/news conference describing the issue

Show the “human condition” – capture people’s emotions

Idea logs – takes notes of ideas you want to follow up with when you have time

Photojournalists, know your strengths and your weaknesses, not all are created alike

Shoot now, edit later – you can’t go back

HOW TO AVOID A BAD ASSIGNMENT

Know as much about the subject and the story as you possibly can

Make your own arrangements – call the subject and find out

Idea logs – takes notes of ideas you want to follow up with when you have time

Photojournalists, know your strengths and your weaknesses, not all are created alike

Shoot now, edit later – you can’t go back

WASHINGTON POST’S HIERARCHY OF PICTURES

Informational – Informational pictures report the facts without the flavor

Graphically appealing – Photojournalists will try to use graphic techniques to make a visually boring situation better

Emotional – The photo captures the subject’s emotion, laughing, crying etc. Will that photo evoke an emotion from the reader as well?

Intimate – These are the most private. These photos make readers feel as if they close to the situation or in tune with the subject. For just a moment this kind of picture transforms the reader into a participant

These four categories are just a starting point. Photos that combine two or more of these qualities gains strength.
