  • 1. PHOTO-JOURNALISM
    by alexandracopley
  • 2. WHAT IS 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 story..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-3HiLyjUy8

  • 11. WHAT IS A PHOTOJOURNALIST?
    A photojournalist uses pictures instead of words to tell a story. They can also accompany their images with some text to elaborate on the details or events.
  • 12. What makes a photojournalist different from a photographer?
  • 13. Photographers take pictures of nouns (people, places and things)
  • 14. Photojournalists shoot action verbs ("kicks," "explodes," "cries," etc.)
  • 15. Photojournalistsdo shoot some nouns.

    SERIES FOR LIFE MAGAZINE IN RIO DE JANEIRO, 1961
  • 38. CHANGING LIVES
    In 1961, Parks did a series for LIFE on the slums of Brazil and found himself in what he describes as "dead center in the worst poverty I have ever encountered—in the favela of Catacumba, a desolate mountainside outside of Rio de Janeiro." In true Parks fashion, instead of giving a broad view without much depth, he focused on an individual affected by the larger story, just as he had done with Red Jackson, from the Harlem gang series.At just 12, Flavioda Silva was already dying, from tuberculosis. Flavio lived with his parents, brothers and sisters in a one-room shack. The images Parks created while living with the da Silva family illustrated the family's reliance on their dying son. "What Flavio cared most about," says Parks, "was that his younger brothers and sisters were taken care of. It was very noble of him. . . . I definitely learned more from Flavio about character than Flavio learned from me."After the story ran, LIFE readers contributed money to help with Flavio's medical care. Parks says that people sent in roughly $30,000 to bring Flavio to America. "I went back to Brazil and the doctors told me that Flavio would die on my hands if I took him to America.I took him anyway and after living there for two years, he was cured." When Flavio went back home to Brazil, Parks bought Flavio's father a new truck with the money everyone had sent in, and then LIFE donated $25,000 so that Parks could help the family buy a new home.

    CALCUTTA, INDIA
  • 40. 5 PHOTOGRAPHY ESSAY TIPS
  • 41. 1. FIND A TOPIC
    Photo essays are most dynamic when you as the photographer care about the subject. Make your topic something in which you find interest.
  • 42. LOOKING FOR WHAT OTHERS DON’T SEE…
  • 43. 2. DO YOUR RESEARCH
    For example, if you document a newborn’s first month, spend time with the family. Discover who the parents are, what culture they are from, whether they are upper or lower class. These factors will help you in planning out the type of shots you set up for your story.
  • 44. LOOKING FOR STORIES THAT HAVEN’T BEEN TOLD
  • 45. 3. FIND THE “REAL STORY”
    After your research, you can determine the angle you want to take your story. The main factors of each story create an incredibly unique story.
  • 46. NOT AFRAID TO BE WHAT YOU ARE PHOTOGRAPHING
  • 47. 4. Every dynamic story is built on a set of core values and emotions that touch the heart of its audience
    Joy. Fear. Hurt. Excitement. The best way you can connect your photo essay with its audience is to draw out the emotions within the story and utilize them in your shots. This does not mean that you manipulate your audience’s emotions. You merely use emotion as a connecting point
  • 48. DOCUMENTARY/ TERU KUWAYAMA
    http://silberstudios.tv/videos/conflict-zone-photos-teru-kuwayama
    Uses semi functional Polaroids and toy camera (its the photographer not the camera that makes the photo)
    Looks for the counter narrative
    Has compassion for his subjects/ topics
  • 49. 5. PLAN YOUR SHOTS
    Visualize each shot of the story, or simply walk through the venue/place/event in your mind, you will want to think about the type of shots that will work best to tell your story.
