Photojournalism

  1. 1. Photo journalism Wojtek Mrozowski
  2. 2. What is Photo Journalism • The objective of a photojournalist is to be a visual storyteller. By photographing and editing images in a way that the media wouldn’t be able to. Photojournalists work locally or travel abroad to document current events, some even go into active war zones to get the uncut and unedited take on the war.
  3. 3. Use of images • The pictures that are taken by photojournalists would most likely end up in newspapers and would be used by tv news outlets who would pay the photographer, without having to send anyone from their company out to these places. These images are sometimes shocking due to their raw nature.
  4. 4. Photojournalists • Some of the most famous photojournalists are: Don McCullin, Robert Capa, Eddie Adams, Steve McCurry, Kevin Carter and Dorothea Lange. All of these photographers took images that captured the minds of the public and their images are still being remember and used
  5. 5. Past examples • This is the classic image used to describe the Vietnam war, civilian casualties with the American forces in the background not doing anything to help. This is image was also censored and never released on Tv or in any newspaper because of the frontal nudity of the girl in the middle, some say that the image was never used to hide the horrors the Americans have committed in Vietnam. ‘’The Terror of War’’ - By Nick Ut (www.also.kottke.org/misc/im ages/nick-ut-vietnam.jpg)
  6. 6. Present example • This is an example of present photojournalism, coloured, high definition image. Even with the modern technology used to take the picture, it still has the same impact as any other one (www.news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/i mages/67490000/jpg/_67490296_ gilbertson-9final_mk.jpg)
  7. 7. Photojournalism techniques • Some of the most important things to think about while taking photographs with the intended purpose of photojournalism would be: Timing, the timing has to be right in order to capture the right moment and the right emotion from the subject.
