Widely recognized as setting the standard in photojournalism education, Photojournalism: The Professionals' Approach blends practical techniques with hard-hitting photographs and penetrating interviews with top professionals. From hard news, features, and sports to photo illustrations and the picture story, in-depth case studies take readers along with working professionals as they meet on-the-job challenges. Chapters on color, the strobe, and digital imaging provide clear and simple-to-understand examples. Illustrations accompany many photos to better explain technical situations. Extensive law and ethics chapters provide solid insight into the challenges working pros face every day. This updated edition features a new chapter on digital imaging and new material on finding feature pictures, picture editing, ethics, law, and wartime censorship, more interviews with professionals, and a complete redesign. As in previous editions, the third features the best in U.S. photojournalism - including nearly 150 new photographs to teach and inspire those who would be photojournalists. Extensive electronic research has produced an impressive bibliography that draws on the latest research in the field.
