Even in business photos are strung together to model new products, as sales pitches, and for advertising purposes. Within many fields, photo essays are used in meetings, at conferences, to sway public opinion, and to call communities, constituents, and stakeholders to action on various issues.
Both historically and currently, the art of photojournalism is an essential skill and today that skill is enhanced through the use of multimedia technology. There are many possible audiences for photo essays. Students can create a guest blog post for their presentation. They can create their own class web link and put their essays together in one place.
They might also submit proposals to present at a conference, or look for a site that supports youth voices. In addition, there are many websites dedicated to the presentation of photo essays on various subjects. Performance Tasks , Teaching Resource. Login Register My Account.

My layouts are the ones on the right. The clumsy and clunky layouts on the left were by someone with no design training but lots of enthusaism.
I changed it to: Back to school anarchy' If you read the story it was very cleat that it was anarchy. I also changed the proportions of the image versus the 'Misery' headline. Those round corners and awful coloured blocks were quite tasteless and vert dated. Looking at current South American, Spanish and East European newspapers it is very clear that this is where a lot of new and exciting design is coming from.
The use of those dated flahes, awful rubber-stamped look and complete lack of understanding of how colour functions on newsprint is what lets tthe layout down on the left. As a newspaper layout sub-editor, being able to project and organise news is critical to producing a page that functions well, with solid entry points, organised structure and not diluting the masthead would seem to be obvious.
Using a deep red over a deep cyan flash renders the information useless and very difficult to read. I also found the balance of the elements on the layouts on the left to be particularly poor, by butting the black bar screaming 'Misery' you render your masthead obsolete. Looking at the black misery block I can't see the masterhead, it just cancels it out! I separated the two elements and used the image as a buffer. As the the front cover is a tabloid size, folding the front cover was not a real issue to anyone other than the street sellers who fold paper showing the headline to potential buyers.
On the second layout, that horrible red block with black smudge and a couple of papers front page serves absolutely no purpose at all. The main story is 'Ntini calls it a day' Added the tacky rubber-stamp thing just compounds the problem. Understanding how to present the news is critical to front cover, having sub-editors that never worked as a journalist, photographers or sub-editors for a period long enough to appreciate and understand the news they are layout means you just have technicians that can drive a mouse and draw blocks.
The proportions of headline versus the amount copy is as important as the hierarchy of news. The lead should be bigger than the second lead, which is turn larger than the third lead. Understanding the visual centre of the page and not adding to much prominence to inferior stories and making sure that the photography does not dilute the page it appears on or infact the facing page.
The brief was I understand it was so loose and the person in charge really wasn't sure what he wanted and only suggested elements that he didn't like after being presented with a layout. I supplied the alternative layouts to a senior staff member, but everything went pear shaped before any real decisions were made. The background was the papers were collectively doing badly, shedding readers and subscribers at an alarming rate, one of the newspaper presses were being de-commissioned and the concept of a joint paper was being punted.
The colour ways on the left were to mark each section of the paper with a colour but the truth is the colours were generally awful with little or no understanding of how they would reproduce. I used the existing press' pantone printed colour charts to plot the sections colours with colours that reproduce well on the said press. I also used the actual newspapers master grid to organise the shapes and forms to ensure easy production workflows which further maximises the photographer's not my pics.
The above two layouts were at the direct request of the then Features editor, and quite possibly one of the best edittors I have ever worked with, Gill Moodie. Going through her email's to me suggested at the time they were in a bottleneck and on a very tight deadline, not being happy with what they had at the time. I was supplied a number of concepts, this having the strongest masthead and still true to the newspaper's current style philosphy.
As there was little or no copy other than headlines and basic entry points to the front page, a tradition of poor use good images on the front page on the companies tabloids I chose images that had both news value and drama for the front concepts.. School life, a short lived publication and tanked by the powers to be. That was a real pity because in a small city such as East London and it's surround, there is very little effective school sport coverage.
This was an alternative layout to the existing layout, something brighter and more effective was called for. Part of it's demise was based on almost zero advertising which in hind sight suggested a particularly poor business model was used with little or no 'business 'accum' attach to the success of the project.
The editor who followed canned this project almost immediately, which although a solid business decision, it effectively ended the life of a really promising publication that huge support from the local schools. I used this image from my files, for no other reason other than it was dynamic, effective and not a traditionally used image.
Schoolboy rugby and to be fair most school sports lends itself to being used creatively and should be fun. The idea that the only images that should be used ares those in perfect focus and sterile or academically acceptable misses the opportunity for a front cover that fires the imagination. I have often argued that editors that are visually illiterate should not be the individual making photographic decisions.
I mean that is like taking a liberian and making them editor, they can shuffle paper but they have never been at the coalface. That's also as dangerous as taking a newspaper comp from the cold type department and making them a sub-editor, they will do exactly as they are told but they never will understand what it is they NEED to do because quite frankly, they can only follow orders and no matter how effecient and capable they are at using the software on hand.
Newspaper groups have downsized and crippled their effectiveness for the sake of profit.

Guardian photo diaries Shrews and snow buntings — a post lockdown-easing diary. In , he took a camera obscura, pointed it at a courtyard, and managed to make a permanent exposure of it. It took eight hours. He called it a heliograph, the first recorded picture using light-sensitive materials. He wrote a cautious letter to Daguerre, wanting to know about the process, and finally, they decided to form a partnership in He used vapor of mercury and salt.
After eleven more years of experimenting, Daguerre perfected his process: a sheet of copper was coated with a thin layer of silver. The silver was made sensitive to light with iodine vapor. It was exposed in a camera, then vapor of mercury was used to bring out an image. Finally that image was fixed with a salt solution, common table salt. The process was radically different from the chemically based photo process used until digital techniques began in the late s, its chemicals highly toxic and dangerous.
But it worked, and worked very well, offering exquisite detail matching the best of what we can produce even a century and a half later. In early Daguerre tried to attract investors to his process, but could find few. Daguerre, however, had to promise not to patent the process in France, and he eventually did. In Arago and Daguerre announced the process to the world.
Arago's public relations efforts and Daguerre's energetic promotion helped the daguerreotype, as it was called, to take the world by storm. Everyone was talking about it within days. Exposures, at first nearly 20 minutes, were in reduced to 30 seconds with the use of bromide, and faster lenses, able to gather more light.
Those first 20 minute exposures were so long that subjects might get sunburned--direct sunlight only was bright enough to expose the plates. And sitting perfectly still that long was a terrible ordeal, sometimes requiring head braces. But it was okay to blink--exposure was so slow that it didn't register. And people didn't mind sitting through it--after all, a photograph was like a kind of immortality! And, for the first time, people could really record how they looked at a certain age, giving society a new appreciation for the unsettling differences between our visage at 20 and Daguerreotypes immediately became the rage in Paris.
Everyone wanted their photo taken. But some people wore worried, too--artists. At first, when photography was announced, artists were somewhat optimistic. Finally they had a way to fix an image of the camera obscure to bring it back to the study for painting. Daguerre himself had been an artist, and most of the original inventors of photography had intended it as an artists' tool--not as an artistic medium in its own right. However, as photography caught on, artists began to realize that it was going to prove to be a real menace to their livelihood as portrait painters.
Particularly painters of miniatures, a business that dropped to zero almost overnight as daguerreotypists were able to hand-color their photographs. More unsettling, artists had lost the centuries-old battle for more and more detail, more and more realism. And lost it to a machine that could produce detail far beyond any artist. Artists realized that photography was not going to stay in the role that they had hoped, merely a copying aid. Everyone who was anyone wanted his portrait on a daguerreotype, and the little plate was much cheaper than a painting.
Artists, nevertheless, used photographs as aids to their own painting, often photographing a scene or a face to save time, and returned to the studio to paint it. No one would call photography an "art," however.
Many artists declared that the upstart was vulgar and mechanical, and some would not admit to using it at all. Photographers, on the other hand, more and more argued that photography was an art. That debate raged well into the twentieth century and indeed still sometimes greets photographers today. More than once, when I was more actively entering photographs in juried art shows, the rules would state "no photography.
Nevertheless, in the next 30 years, painters either consciously or unconsciously were strongly influenced in their use of lighting, in composition, in depiction of movement, by photography. Photography brought the philosophy of art to crisis, which ended with artists turning away from the centuries-old quest for realism--which photographers had won--toward a new goal, to paint feelings, interpretations, abstractions, and not necessarily what was there. Photography motivated the beginnings of the twentieth century's non-representational and abstract art.
After Daguerre and Arago announced the new process, a man in England became worried. His name, William Henry Fox Talbot , a wealthy gent with much time for experimenting and, like Daguerre, an accomplished artist. Talbot too was looking for a w ay to make permanent his images in the camera obscura.
He was aware that artists before, in the s, ha managed to make permanent an image, not on metal, but on paper. The problem, though, was that the process was not very workable, and anyway, the image produced was a negative. What use was that? Talbot experimented with the same paper process, trying to find a better way to make the image permanent. His too was a negative image, but he had an idea no one had thought of before, apparently.
By putting the negative image against a second sensitized sheet, and shining light through it, he could produce a positive image. When Daguerre announced his process, Talbot was concerned that it was the same process as his. So he quickly published an account of his own method. In succeeding months of it became obvious that Talbot's process was totally different from Daguerre's.
Talbot dipped paper in salt, and when dry, in silver nitrate, forming a light-sensitive chemical, silver chloride. He pointed the sensitized paper in a camera obscura at an object, waited until the image turned dark enough to be seen with the naked eye, about 30 minutes, then fixed the image with a strong salt solution, or potassium iodide. In Sir John Herschel suggested that hyposulfite of soda would more effectively fix the image, and remove the unused silver particles, so that they wouldn't turn dark over time.
Herschel is credited with inventing the fixing method we basically still use today in our "wet" darkrooms, called "hypo" for short. Talbot soon realized that he really wouldn't have to wait until the image was actually visible, such a long exposure. With a shorter exposure, a hidden, or latent image would be formed, which could then be brought out by developing in gallic acid. So now we have a negative, development, fix, a process basically unchanged until the invention of digital imaging.
Talbot also waxed the paper, making it more transparent, and called his process the "calotype," Greek for "beautiful picture. Unlike Daguerre, however, Talbot patented his process. He gave licenses to few. For a dozen years the process hardly grew at all under the stranglehold of the patents. It was not, however, patented in Scotland, allowing pioneer photographers David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson in the s to produced an important collection of calotypes.
Langenheim in the United States received a license, the only calotype producer in the country. Meanwhile in France, witnessing the early announcement was an American, Samuel F. Morse himself had been dabbling in photography, and when he heard Daguerre's announcement he wrote about it right away for his audiences in America. More returned to New York City and taught the new process to several students, including Mathew Brady.
In the world's first portrait studio was opened in New York City. We can credit Morse for bringing photography to America--along with his famous invention, the telegraph. Daguerreotypes stayed popular in America and Europe for about a decade. Everyone had to have one. All the famous people had to have their faced daguerreotypes.
The calotype was not nearly as popular, partly because of Talbot's controlling patents. But Talbot did contribute to the history of photography the first photo-illustrated book, his Pencil of Nature. In it he described his process, and illustrated it with actual photos attached to the book, charming domestic scenes and descriptions. But his calotypes were thought of as inferior to daguerreotypes, because they lacked the fine details of the metal-plate-based process.
True enough; a daguerreotype is exquisitely detailed, even by modern standards. The calotype involved printing through a paper negative and, inevitably, the grain of paper fibers also were transferred to the image. This produced soft, almost luminous images.
Today we think they truly are beautiful, but given the s emphasis on detail and realism, they were fuzzy. So calotypes never caught on like daguerreotypes, which were produced by the millions. In fact, today collections can obtain daguerreotypes for a fairly reasonable price.
Thousands still exist , in their small leather cases and behind class, to protect the fragile surface. However, just about the time that Talbot finally decided to cede his patents to his calotype method, technology moved to replace both it and the daguerreotype.
The big problem with the calotype was its loss of detail through the appear; if only an emulsion could be spread on glass, this problem and the fragile calotype negative could be eliminated. Many experimenters tried sticky things like raspberry jam or honey to keep the silver nitrate suspended on a glass plate. Nothing worked. It worked all right on glass plates, but soon it was left for another method which proved more sensitive to light.
In Scott Archer, British, combined guncotton, ether and alcohol into a solution called collodion. The collodion was flowed onto a glass plate, dipped in silver nitrate, and exposed in the camera. The beauty of this method was that it only required a two to three second exposure, much faster than previous methods.
The drawback was that the wet plate process demanded that photographers make exposures before the plate dried and lost its sensitivity to light, about one minute. Photographers, therefore, had to carry portable darkrooms everywhere they wanted to take a picture. Nevertheless the wet plate process rapidly became the new standard, totally eliminating the daguerreotype by An era in photography--that of the unique, one of a kind photograph--had ended. Glass negatives could produce as many prints as needed.
In fact, millions of egg whites were separated, their yokes sold to bakeries or hog farms. Wet plates made possible extensive photography outside the studio, because of their superior sensitivity, and despite their darkroom drawback. This is not to say that no photography was done outside a studio before In , Carl Stelzner made a daguerreotype photo of the Hamburg fire--the first spot news photo.
But the wet-plate process was far superior for outdoor photography, and after we find the first extensive use of photography to chronicle events and scenery. In Roger Fenton brought his camera to the Crimean War, the first war photographer. A Chicago photographer named Alexander Hesler is especially important to people around here. In the s he photographed Minnesota, including views of St.
He was considered one of the great Midwestern American photographers of the period. Photographers brought wet-plate darkrooms on their backs or pulled by mules to remote places around the world, from the arctic to the hot dusty sands of Egypt. Considering the fragile technology in those difficult conditions and climate extremes, it is astounding what photographs they did get. And they were very good. Probably the most famous of these early on-location photographers is Mathew Brady.
Brady was trained by Morse in , and soon opened his own studio in new York. Although ironically and tragically troubled by weak eyesight--blind in his later years--Brady built with partner Alexander Gardner an extremely successful portrait studio in New York, and later in Washington D. Most of the famous statesmen for 30 years were photographed by Brady or his staff, including every president from John Quincy Adams to William McKinley.
Most important, however, were the many portraits Brady made of Abraham Lincoln, beginning before Abe became president. Brady became acquaintances with Lincoln, and when the Civil War began , he conceived of a new idea: to photograph the war as a complete chronicle from beginning to end.
Brady secured permission from Lincoln in one letter reading "Pass Brady," but no money. At that point he needed none. But by the end of the war Brady had spent it all, and owed more. He financed 20 teams of photographers to cover al the major battle sites.
The technology of the time was not fast enough to photograph actual battles, but his haunting photos of battle aftermath perhaps forever changed the picture of war for ordinary civilians. After the war Brady tried to sell some of his war photos, but they didn't sell well. Most people wanted to forget the war. He gave much of his collection to the U. War Department which, in turn, paid some of his bills. Unfortunately the department did not take careful care of the fragile collection, and much was lost.
You can still acquire Brady photos through the Library of Congress web site. Other well-known and important pioneer photographers include the Paris photographer Nadar, and the British portraitist Julia Margaret Cameron. Nadar, whose real name was Gaspard Felix Tounachon, set up shop in the mids and photographed the Paris greats and scene until about He was well known for his sensitive portraits.
He also took the first aerial photos, from a balloon. Indeed, he actually had his portable darkroom in the balloon's gondola, and developed as the balloon swayed back and forth. Can you imagine! Cameron is also known for her portraits, especially those of famous people. She was an extremely pushy lady--an early papparazzi? Also significant at this time was the development of the so-called carte-de-visite , around These were small photos of about three and one fourth by two and one eighth inches which were collected and traded somewhat like sports cards are today.
It was the rage to have your family and a variety of famous people in your carte-de-visite album. In the stereoscope was invented to view photographs. The idea was a bit like what we might call the Viewmaster toy today--two photographs taken at slightly different angles were mounted on a card.
The card was placed in the viewer, and like binoculars the two images would blend together to make what appeared to be a three-dimensional image.
