James Glen Stovall
Even in the digital age with its pervasive video, the news photograph – the single still image – retains its power to embed itself in our heads.
Because of that, photojournalism and the photojournalist are important parts of the field of journalism. Training people to understand the power of the photograph and think like a photojournalist is vital to journalism education.
That’s what this book does. Photojournalism: Telling Stories with Pictures and Words is aimed at young people who want to use a camera to show the world to others.
This book introduces students to the basic principles of photojournalism and to concepts such as the rule-of-thirds, cropping and editing, the value of the close-up, and the talent of seeing what other people do not see.
