Great photography – get a grip!
Blog Guy, I love looking at pictures on news sites, and I’m thinking of maybe trying to break into photojournalism. I know it’s complicated, but what makes a really good news photo?
Really? Because I would have thought maybe great instants in sports, or dramatic shots that record the human condition, or tragic war photos, or…
Are you stupid? Everybody prefers the old grip and grin. Just look at the shots that win big prizes year after year. Handshakes and more handshakes.
This is so surprising! Not to doubt you or anything, but specifically who likes them?
Specifically, the people in the photographs.
Lots of people shake hands with lots of other people. REUTERS photos
