Written Reflection

In this photojournalism class of Mrs. Bradberry, I learned so much about photography it's insane and interesting that there is so much to soak in when taking a photo. I learned that when you are a photojournalist, you have to always tell the truth. I learned different elements of composition in photography, the history of it, that your best zoom lens are your feet. There are endless things I have learned and I definitely recommend anyone to take this class to learn basic things about photojournalism and photography. My favorite project would probably be taking photos with friends and as a class, it's the best part when you share ideas with others. I've always liked taking pictures so I thought about taking this course and Im glad I did because I learned many things to help me take better, more interesting pictures.

  1. "Editing should maintain the integrity of the photographic images' content and context. Do not manipulate images or add or alter sound in any way that can mislead viewers or misrepresent subjects."

By this, being a photojournalist involves telling a story and telling the truth. Editing an image by its content or context is not being considerate of the objects, people in the image or the viewers.

  1. Do not intentionally sabotage the efforts of other journalists.

By this code, it is not right to affect another fellow journalist in any harm that could affect his or her's work or life.

  1. Respect the integrity of the photographic moment.

As a photojournalist, you are a witness and an observer. You cannot be involved in the photographic moment. Such as a school fight, while you are taking pictures, you can't just jump into the fight afterwards. Stay outside of the scene and observe don't manipulate the moment.
