    • PHOTOJOURNALISM AND GRAPHICS JOURNALISM

    • IMMEDIACY
    • INTERACTIVITY
    • PERMANENCE
    • NEWS PHOTOS THAT JUST WON’T GO AWAY
      • These are the two photos that come to mind when I think of photojournalism.
      • Though not alive when the first one was taken, it has become one photo that has always stuck in my mind. A portrait of violence that though 40 years old is still unfortunately relevant today.
      • And of course 9/11. I think that we all become so inundated with news and horror that only the most shocking now are clear in our minds.
      • These are my two.
    • INFORMATION GRAPHICS

    • ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT
      • Accuracy and Clarity are the two major functions a graphic must have to be useful to the reader. If it does not accomplish these two elements it has failed.
      • In the case of this example, there are several things wrong. Color choices, the hole in the center, and it is hard to get an accurate reading of each group represented.
      • For the most part, however, graphics journalism does an admirable job of clarifying and pinpointing key points the reader needs to enhance their comprehension of the story.
    • PRINT AND WEB GRAPHICS
      • Print:
      • Web:
    • ADDING INFORMATION GRAPHICS
      • Though this is a fairly basic story, it could have been punched up using information graphics.
      • Examples:
      • Bar charts indicating the number of voters- registered, unregistered, and those in the process.
      • Map of Shelby County with color codes indicating population of registered compared to last election.
      • Comparisons of early voters this time as to last election.
    • POLITICAL CARTOONS
      • The future of political cartoons is safe.
      • They are a part of American culture and have been that way for since the beginning.
      • They can translate from print to digital and they continue to have a witty and acerbic edge that you can laugh at while while knowing that the content is true (to a point) no matter the political viewpoint.
