Written Reflection

In photojournalism this year I learned a lot about not just how to take a picture but how to edit it and make it look better after the fact. The cameras we had weren't the greatest so learning and eventually knowing how to use photoshop was a huge advantage to creating good pictures. My favorite project is split between two, the light project and any project where we could choose our own pictures to take and then edit them. I enjoyed the light project due to the fact that I enjoy taking pictures of people and capturing their expressions. Playing with the lights and shadows and seeing how the shadows and light were altered on the subject was interesting also. Any project where we could choose our own subjects were fun because there weren't specific guidelines to follow, it was all based on creativity. I love baseball so I went outside and took pictures of gloves, bats, and the field because nature creates a better picture than a concrete and plastic jungle inside. I already enjoyed photography and this class helped me get better which makes me enjoy it more than ever.

Laws and Ethics

  1. 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. (If theres an accident or shooting you want to take pictures of the people in grief but make sure you do it respectfully and ask them about it or try and give them a shoulder to cry on. Basically don't be a jerk.)
  2. Do not accept gifts, favors, or compensation from those who might seek to influence coverage. (Tell the truth instead of what someone wants to pay you to say)
  3. Strive to ensure that the public's business is conducted in public. Defend the rights of access for all journalists. (You're actions reflect on journalists as a whole so remember what you do the title journalists/photographer goes on.)

Camera operations

  1. Turning it on/off. All you do is find the power slide (usually top right) and then slide it the direction that it lets you and boom you either have or lose power. Also most cameras have an automatic function that turns the camera off after a certain amount of time not being in use.
  2. Inserting batteries. So you tried to turn the camera on but it stayed black or showed you a battery image. What do you do? Just flip the camera over and find the slot on the bottom. You just slide it like the power button and pull out and up. Inside there are spots for batteries and you just insert them the correct direction. (Some cameras have different batteries than regular double a's but this how to do school cameras.)
  3. Inserting an SD card. You're camera won't let you take pictures because there isn't an SD card to store them on. Don't give up quite yet, go to the same place as the batteries and you'll see a slot. Insert your SD card the direction it'll fit.
  4. How to zoom. On top next to the button to actually take the picture theres gonna be a circle that you just spin left and right to zoom in and out.
  5. How to Look at your picture. To the right of the screen theres going to either be a dial or a button that looks like a picture/gallery. Simply press the button or rotate the dial until you get there to open up and look at the pictures on your SD card before taking them to a computer.
