I wanted to write a post about editorial photography but why writing something that has been talked about for a long time, so, I did some research and this is what I found, something simple and easy to read. The questions now is, do we all like Editorial photography?
What is Editorial Photography?
Most of the times you come across a cover page of some renowned magazine or an editorial in the leading news daily, you are left amazed at the photograph which speaks in volumes about the subject. It may come as a surprise for many, but this is what editorial photography is all about.
In editorial photography, pictures become story-tellers and give the reader a visual insight of the writeup.
In simple words, editorial photography can be defined as capturing pictures and publishing it along with a writeup to support it.
It is very difficult to explain a concept by means of a single line definition in any creative field, and the same rule prevails here.
Photojournalism is considered to be a subset of editorial photography which may or may not have a writeup attached to it.
All these shots were taken behind the scene of 2 different events.
