Can Art School Students Get Involved In Photojournalism?

By Michael Robert Peterson

Journalism, as you can imagine, is designed for the purpose of distributing news through words. On the other hand, photojournalism is the way in which photographs are structured in order to tell stories, either in magazines or other publications entirely. The latter subject is also one that many art students find themselves getting involved in. Those who are focused on photography, in particular, cannot overlook just how strong this subject is.

For those who have the goal of becoming photojournalists, you must know that many points are worthy of your interest. The most important, from what I have seen, is a strong understanding of photography and the various assets it contains. You want to make sure that photos are taken well and that the proper angles and methods are used to accomplish this. For those who are set on being photojournalists, this is probably one of the better places to begin.

Photojournalists must also understand the importance of timing. When you are in a particular location, for the sake of snapping pictures, you probably already know that there is some event or another to expect. It's just a matter of timing yourself and setting up for the best shot that can be brought into whatever publication you may be working on. When you take the perfect shot, without fail, your skills as a photojournalist are made that much more apparent.

If you're going to go into photojournalism with better care, it's important to know about focus as well. Every shot that you take must be crisp and this element does not come from your camera alone, even though it has power behind it. You must also know about how lighting and distance can help to make seemingly strong shots much weaker in practice. It's in your ability to measure the aforementioned elements and work around them that will make you a better photojournalist.

If you keep these points in mind, there's no doubt that you stand a chance of excelling in photojournalism. This is the perfect subject for those who are not only passionate about photography but the conveyance of stories that people would like to get into. This can be brought into magazine publications, as stated earlier, or digital media. Photojournalism has its appeal and it's one that can attract a number of students in art school.
