Photojournalism was a really fun class it was probably the best one I've had all semester. I learned a lot, such as how to use a camera properly and photoshop. My least favorite project was the SAT alphabet because it was hard finding things that looked like certain letters. My favorite was the Humans of FRHS assignment because Humans of New York is something that I really like, and basically I got to do something like that. As a result of this course I've grown to like photography more than i already did.

NPPA Code of Ethics

1. Be accurate and comprehensive in the representation of subjects. This relates to photojournalism because as a photojournalist you should not fabricate the story to make yourself look good.

2. Do not intentionally sabotage the efforts of other journalists. As a photojournalist you shouldn't do this because that makes you look very immature and it gives you a bad name.

3. Treat all subjects with respect and dignity. Give special consideration to vulnerable subjects and compassion to victims of crime or tragedy. Intrude on private moments of grief only when the public has an overriding and justifiable need to see. This is self explanatory
