The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Food for thought

Zombietime has posted an excellent analysis of photojournalistic fraud. The four types he lists are:

  1. Digitally manipulating images after the photographs have been taken.

  2. Photographing scenes staged by Hezbollah and presenting the images as if they were of authentic spontaneous news events.

  3. Photographers themselves staging scenes or moving objects, and presenting photos of the set-ups as if they were naturally occurring.

  4. Giving false or misleading captions to otherwise real photos that were taken at a different time or place.

Be sure to check the original article out, it's definitely worth a read.
