Photography Tips and Techniques
Post-processing Images

  When Ansel Adams exposed a photographic plate or piece of
  film, he thought about the light, perspective, exposure and
  so on. He would often manipulate the development process to
  maximize the dynamic range of his negatives. Printing the
  negative was an exercise in photo-manipulation mostly
  through dodging and burning.

  It's a whole new world with dSLR and smart phone cameras.
  Image manipulation is part of the electronic processing
  taking place in milliseconds. What we call post-processing
  refers to further changing the image from what the Camera

  One philosophy often cited is "get the image right" when one
  makes the exposure--post-processing is not necessary. That's
  the perspective your instructor chooses.

  An alternative philosophy--any image can be "improved".
  There are literally hundreds of programs and apps to achieve
  image manipulation. This course refers to some of the more
  professional and well-known software.

Photojournalism Does image manipulation contradict the goals of a photojournalist? Photojournalism: A Complete Guide Photojournalism ideas Photojournalism tells a story not in thousands of words but in a single photo (or a short series of photos). Just as a written news story presents a complete picture by providing an overview, a thesis, subjects, and various points of view, photojournalism achieves this same objective pictographically. Good photojournalism tells stories with a beginning, middle, and end. Captions help convey the story, but in photojournalism text is secondary to images. The power to inform and persuade proves just as strong in photos as it does in words. Many types of photojournalism exist, and there are just as many ways to practice it. From news to features, photo stories to portraits, from documenting wars to local news and sports, photojournalism represents a category as broad as journalism itself. What remains constant throughout is a dedication to unbiased, honest reporting. Photojournalism aims to present the facts, to provide a picture of reality, to inform.

Photo Assignment - Telling a Story A picture is worth a thousand words. That is the motto of a photojournalist. It is their objective to produce direct, truthful and bold images that tell the stories for those who have no voice or show a different perspective. Capture an image or a sequence of images that tells a story. Perhaps something in your neighborhood or community. You want the image(s) to hold the viewer's attention and have an impact.

Right Image Left Image Right Image Left Image A stereo pair consists of two pictures, one for the left eye and one for the right. Even though the two pictures may look very similar, they're not identical. During viewing, the left eye sees the left image and the right eye the right; then the brain fuses the two so you perceive depth.
