5 frame photo story


-Resist being manipulated by staged photo opportunities: Take candid photos and do not ask the person to pose (if the main focus is a person)

-Treat all subjects with respect and dignity: Give special consideration to vulnerable subjects and show compassion to the victims of crimes or tragedy

-Editing should maintain the integrity of the photographic images' content and context: DO NOT manipulate images, add, or alter sounds that can mislead the viewers

written reflection

In this semester of photojournalism, I learned how to photoshop, the laws and ethics of being a photojournalist, how to write captions, the compositions of photos, and lighting. My favorite project would be theHumans of Fossil Ridge one because it was really interesting to see what other peoples opinions/ thoughts and what they are or enjoy doing. Through that project, I was able to get out of my comfort zone a little bit and know a little bit more about others who I do not usually talk to. My least favorite project would be the 5 frame photo story because it was hard for me to make up the captions. I was just really confused and i felt rushed. Photography is much harder than i thought it would be. There are a lot of things that go into it like the lighting, timing, elements of composition, being able to tell a story with it, etc. We had limited supplies and there were not that many objects we could take photos of but overall, I enjoyed it a lot.
