|What is photojournalism? When we read or watch the news, it is often the photo that grasps our attention. A picture is worth a thousand words. Really good photos capture the reader?s interest and can have an immense impact on us. Photojournalism is about telling the story through pictures. Photojournalists also report the news and convey who, what, when, where, why and how. |

photo), of the photographs help to improve the news article.
