Editorial photojournalism refers to the use of photographs in editorial or news content, such as magazines, newspapers, or online news outlets. The purpose of editorial photojournalism is to document and inform the public about important events, issues, and people. These photographs are usually accompanied by written text and are intended to provide visual context and storytelling to the story being told. The goal of editorial photojournalism is to accurately and objectively document events, and to provide a visual perspective on the world for the audience.
I worked as a staff photographer at the Patriot-News for 18 years. Most of my commercial marketing in an editorial style. I can caption and turn work around as needed.
Most of my editorial work lately has been in health care. It makes it difficult to use the images on my website. I do have some post on my blog with more recent images.
What does a Photographer Look for in an Image?
A photographer typically looks for several elements in a photograph to determine its quality and impact. These elements can include:
- Composition: the arrangement of objects, people, the background, and all elements within the frame.
- Lighting: the way light is used to illuminate the subject and create mood and atmosphere.
- Focus: the clarity and sharpness of the subject.
- Color: the use of color to enhance the subject and create visual interest.
- Emotion: the ability of the photograph to evoke an emotional response from the viewer.
- Storytelling: the ability of the photograph to tell a story or convey a message.
Ultimately, a photographer seeks to create photographs that are aesthetically pleasing, impactful, and communicate something meaningful to the viewer.
