Photography podcast #118 is the first of two episodes dedicated to manipulation in photojournalism. This first episode features an interview with Carl Neustaedter who is the deputy editor of the Ottawa Citizen, the largest daily newspaper in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Carl is one of the people who decides on a daily basis what images make it into the newspaper.
In this interview we discuss how much manipulation is too much manipulation when it comes to news photography.
In particular, we talk about this year’s winning world press photo by Paul Hansen. We also talk about using Instagram and Hipstmatic style filters in news photography. We discuss some famously ‘over’ manipulated news images like the O.J. Simpson Cover on Time Magazine back in 1994. We also discuss more subtle modern ways in which digital news images are manipulated. Finally, we discuss the firing of the photojournalism staff at the Chicago Sun-Times.
