Q: How much manipulation of a photo is allowed in news photography?

Surprisingly, more people than I realized do think it's acceptable.  When The Economist ran the manipulated "Obama v BP" cover, I watched (and joined) the comments on their FB page unfold. Seemingly intelligent people were defending the practice.  
A high percentage of news readers even think the "Op Ed" page is reporting. In newsrooms, the line between the Opinion Editors and the Metro Editors is sacrosanct, but a lot of people think reporters answer to the Op Editor. They never do.  
Photojournalistic ethics need to be continually debated. Especially in an age when an unfiltered, "straight" image is the exception in photography.
Now I have to go edit some HDR stuff, brb. lol

I love the post-processing of this image. 
 
There was a place where water is clean and cold, trees green and sky is blue, and I am young.
Now I watch my daughter is wondering there, going to find her way in this life :-)

Jacques Henri Lartigue's glorious colour photos are being shown for the first time in Paris http://ow.ly/PwOf9
Jacques Henri Lartigue was known for his monochrome shots of the Belle Époque and the Roaring Twenties, but lesser known are his glorious colour photos – from poppy fields in Provence to Cannes beach scenes

Before there was Photoshop, there was Salvador Dali
This is the famous "Dali Atomicus". You may have seen it before and asked, "How did Dali and photographer Phillipe Halsmen create that?"
Here's the story  http://www.shootingfilm.net/2013/04/how-famous-dali-atomicus-photo-was-taken.html

At a newspaper I worked at in 2002,  I was using two Canon EOS D2000s (aka Kodak DCS 520). The bodies were $25,000 each.

In 2000, my 250 MB Lexar CF cards were $250.00 USD each -- one dollar per MB.

Fifteen years later.....
 
LG G4 and HTC One M9 support expandable storage up to 2TB... unfortunately 2TB microSD cards don't exist yet.

As video becomes more widely adopted by companies, it's clear that you may be approached  to shoot video. However, when it comes to shooting video there are a lot of rules, some similar to photography, to keep in mind. Setting up a check list is the best way to make sure your video shoots go off without a hitch.

ParleyShot Commercial Photography recently created a 360 degree virtual tour of our office. It turned out great! Christian was a pleasure to work with. From start to finish, the project was seamless and took very little effort on our part. We would highly recommend him for any photography work you may need to have done. He is also very knowledgeable about Google and gave us some great suggestions to help us with our Google+ page. Thanks for a job well done!

We have had an opportunity to work with Christian as he did a phenomenal job of doing a 360 view inside our shop to use on our webpage for Aram's auto. He took the time to understand what I was looking for, he made suggestions that were brilliant and enhanced the delivery of the video. It was a pleasure working with Christian and we highly recommend him. Thank you Christian.

Chris with ParleyShot Commercial Photography came out today and shot our business for the Google's Inside View part of Google Maps. Not only was Chris extremely personable, professional, and punctual. He was also very knowledgeable with the inner workings of Google. He gave us some great tips to help position our business at the top of Google's search engine. Thanks again, Chris!

I have worked with Chris from Parley Shot for the last three years and I can't say enough about His passion for excellence! He has gone above and beyond the extra mile to accommodate Creative Tiles needs. You can tell when a company really cares about there customers, I truly I know I found a gym here. We had Chris set up our virtual tour and that alone has paid for itself 20 fold. If you need photos choose Parley Shot, You wont be disappointed!
