14 Goal of Photojournalism Selecting story telling photographs that can convey the fullest, most accurate sense of the situation photographed

15 Goal of Photojournalism Engage the heart and mind of a viewer with a compelling version of truth that results from bearing witness or a situation or event.

16 Rule of Thirds With the rule of thirds, you mentally divide the crop area with two evenly spaced vertical lines and two evenly spaced horizontal lines, creating a grid of nine sections. To create a pleasing composition, the primary focal point of the image should fall at one of the line intersections.

17 Framing Placement of the center of interest in a photograph according to the other elements in the photograph.

18 Proximity Distance between camera and subject. Stare. Get up close and personal. Don't let subject get swallowed up in surrounding landscape.

19 Vantage Point Bend your knees or raise yourself up to get picture. Abandon your normal vantage point and experiment with shooting from different angles É below, above, inside, outside. Shoot from other than your eye level.
