Includes bibliographical references and index.
Practical Photojournalism covers the basics of photography from an understanding of the effects of light, aperture, shutter speed, ISO and focusing, to an appreciation of composition, perspective and dynamic range. There's in-depth advice on choosing and using cameras, lenses, flashguns, tripods, filters and other equipment, including the role of modern smartphones in today's "citizen journalism." The core skills of the working photographer are detailed, with reference to areas of speciality in news, fashion, royalty, advertising, sport and war photography, and social history issues. Allied essential skills such as caption-writing, keywording and archiving images are also covered. This comprehensive book includes invaluable information on the latest developments in picture transmission, the role of the picture desk in the modern newspaper or news agency, the legal aspects of photojournalism and the rights and moral responsibility of the photographer. Digital photography has broadly replaced film-based photography in the world of photojournalism, and the author gives an authoritative guide to the medium, along with practical instruction on postproduction techniques, such as retouching, in addition to advice on cropping, sizing and manipulating images. Finally, a guide to established career paths into photojournalism offers useful sources for further investigation.
