Chapter 8 reading assignment

Posted on: March 30, 2010

Chapter eight was about photos and graphics. I learned that a picture is more than just pushing a button on a camera and creating a pretty image. It has a lot to do with technical things too. Technical complaints often come from editors. They look for good contrast and sharp details. These elements are key for glossy magazines and cheap news print.

For the subject matter area, I learned that group photos are often a problem. Often times photographers want to please a large group and feel like they have to include everywhere, but most of the time a good number is three or four for a group shot.

I also learned that action is a very important. Action makes the picture move and gives you an idea of what is going on after the picture is taken. Action photos can be taken at any time, but the best ones are candid when the subjects don’t know they are being photographed.

This information is from my book: Public Relations Writing and Media Techniques
