In this chapter, Briggs discussed photojournalism and how a picture can tell just as much of a story as words on a page. Briggs talks about this in his book and gives a few pointers on how to achieve the photos that will have the best impact. The bottom line is photos add drama to a story, any story.
Photography is a critical tool for journalists, its all about the moment, being able to capture quick and fleeting moments. The chapter provided the basics on how to capture solid photographs, edit and manage digital photos and how to publish.
To take better photos Briggs suggests holding the camera steady, fill the frame, focus on one thing, get closer, go vertical, shoot action.
