  3. 3. Photojournalist/s- is/are the person/s capturing images used in photojournalism. Photojournalists create pictures that contribute to the news media.
  4. 4. CAPTION – is the text or body type accompanying photos or artwork or any pictorial illustration and sometimes called cutline or underline. The title or explanatory matter above a photo is called overline.
  5. 5. Captions should be closely related to the picture so that the reader may be able to take in picture and caption at a glance.
  6. 6. 1. Explain what needs explaining All captions should answer six basic questions; who, what, when, where, how and why. The first sentence should easily take care of who, what, when and where. The rest of the caption explains why and how.
