  72. 79. Photojournalism can be found in every form of modern media. Often called &quot;documentary photography,&quot; these photographs offer a form of news that lets the public experience the event visually. It offers a more tangible look at these events that can be understood by anyone, no matter the age or literary skill. Migrant Mother What is a photojournalist? A journalist tells stories. A photographer takes pictures of nouns (people, places and things). A photojournalist takes the best of both and locks it into the most powerful medium available - frozen images. Florence Leona Christie (Dorothea Lange )1936.
  73. 80. More on the photojournalist A photojournalist is a visual reporter of facts. The public places trust in its reporters to tell the truth. The same trust is extended to photojournalists as visual reporters. This responsibility is paramount to a photojournalist. At all times, we have many thousands of people seeing through our eyes and expecting to see the truth. Most people immediately understand an image. In today's world of grocery store tabloids and digital manipulation of images, the photojournalist must still tell the truth. The photojournalist constantly hunts for the images (or verbs), which tell of the day-to-day struggles and accomplishments of his community. These occurrences happen naturally. There is no need to &quot;set up&quot; reality. There is no need to lie to a community that bestows its trust. In a nutshell:   If a photojournalist isn't going to fake a fire or a street stabbing scene, why would he set up &quot;person A&quot; giving &quot;person B&quot; an object (award, check, trophy etc.)? The photojournalist simply wants to hang around, be forgotten and wait for the right moment. Then, the hunt begins anew. Like the police officer or firefighter, the photojournalist's concern is his community even if that means sacrificing comfort or life. Many photojournalists die every year in the process of collecting visual information, which lets the public know of atrocities, dangers and the mundane.
  74. 81. <ul><li>What makes a photojournalist different from a photographer? Photographers take pictures of nouns (people, places and things). Photojournalists shoot action verbs (&quot;kicks,&quot; &quot;explodes,&quot; &quot;cries,&quot; etc.). Photojournalists do shoot some nouns. These nouns can be standard photos of people (portraits), places (proposed zoning areas or construction sites) and things (name it). However, the nouns we seek still must tell a story. </li></ul>
  75. 82. <ul><li>Professional photojournalist Mark M. Hancock discusses photojournalism and the eccentricities associated with gathering images for daily newspapers and magazines. </li></ul>
  76. 83. <ul><li> To be a photojournalist, we must understand the relationship between the image and these basic elements of language (all languages - worldwide).      The girl hits (or misses) the ball. There are no other options. The girl is easy to photograph. The ball is easy to photograph. The verb is the hard part. As a servant of the citizens, it's the photojournalist's OBLIGATION to capture the entire sentence involved in EVERY event. There are no excuses. It's hit or missed. Some photographers don't care. They have a picture of the bat. &quot;Hey, that's what tried to hit the ball.&quot; They just don't get it. </li></ul>
