12 3 Photography 1 A CAMERA is an extension of a photographer’s creative vision. A SINGLE LENS REFLEX (SLR) CAMERA IS A COMMON PHOTOJOURNALISM TOOL. POINT-AND-SHOOT CAMERAS OFFER SIMPLE OPERATION. SINGLE-USE CAMERAS OFFER CONVENIENCE. DIGITAL CAMERAS OFFER ANOTHER OPTION.

12 3 Photography 1 Thorough PLANNING encourages strong photo content and organized production. PLANNERS AND FORMS GUIDE THE PHOTO PROCESS. IF PHOTOGRAPHERS SHOOT FILM, AN ADDITIONAL ORGANIZATIONAL SYSTEM IS ESSENTIAL.
1 3 2 Photography 1 PHOTO EDITING is an important step in the process. PHOTO EDITING BRINGS TOGETHER PHOTOGRAPHERS AND DESIGNERS. PHOTO EDITING INVOLVES SELECTION, CROPPING, SIZING AND DESIGN CONCERNS.
1 3 2 Photography 1 ACTION and REACTION transform ordinary activities into extraordinary photos.
1 3 2 Photography 1 SIMPLICITY: An uncluttered background allows the subject filling the frame to command attention.
1 3 2 Photography 1 Consider shooting from a higher or lower vantage point for a unique PERSPECTIVE..
1 3 2 Photography 1 DIMENSION: Selective focus adds depth to this photo taken from the perspective of the subject.
1 3 2 Photography 1 PERSONAL: Focusing on people makes photographs of events, like a college fair, more compelling.
1 3 2 Photography 1 FRESH: The photographer avoids a trite blood drive photo by shooting from an aerial perspective.
1 3 2 Photography 1 GET CLOSE: Sidelines photos show another dimension of the game and allow for close-ups.
1 3 2 Photography 1 SNAPSHOT: While photojournalistic images are the best, sometimes posed photos tell interesting stories.
Key terms Cropping – indicating the image area to be reproduced. Cropping enhances a photo’s visual impact by removing dead space from the sides top or bottom. The image is edited, although all essential information is left intact. Digital Camera – a camera that transmits images onto a disk for downloading to a computer and placement onto the page. In general resemble a standard 35mm SLR camera with the same exposure system. Most have an optical viewfinder and an LCD image display. Master Calendar – list all events to photograph, all deadlines (staff and printer) and scheduled shoots so important photos are not missed. Should be posted so that all staff can see it. Negative Log – record of rolls of film processed, including date and content and an assigned number used in reference to the contact sheet.
Key terms Photo Assignment – the time, place and event/activity the photographer is expected to shoot. Photo Editing – bring together photography and design and involves selection, cropping, sizing, and the design of photos to optimize storytelling. Point-and-Shoot-Camera – the most common type used by the general public. Usually fully automatic with built-in flash, this camera uses film. The viewfinder is a simple window through the body of the camera. Instead of seeing the real image formed by the camera lens, the photographer sees only a rough idea of what is in view. Single Lens Reflex (SLR) Camera – a common photojournalism tool used by professional photographers that allow the photographer to see the actual real image that the film will see.
Key terms Single-Use Camera – one-time use cameras in which the photographer can not change the settings for differing lighting conditions or special effects. Convenient to purchase, easy to use, with modestly good results. Sizing – matching the dimensions of the original photo to the proportions of the spread or page design. Spread Planner – a thumbnail design sketch for each spread, used by photographers, which contains content notes and information about the possible variety of photos required. Tracking Form – a grid sheet listing photos down the side and steps across the top or bottom, used by the photo editor to track progress of photos from scheduling to deadline.
