Where to draw the line?

Another interesting article about photography, from BBC. About the line not to cross in photojournalism. I have spent several days with colleagues at the Visa pour l’Image Perpignan, France. An international press photo festival. The discussions are very interesting. They as photo journalists have totally different standards for their jobs. Me, on the other hand, being a food and commercial photographer, I am most often expected to do images “better”. We have the same tools but different standards to follow. Stories about staged photos makes you think. We should all do that. Sometimes it is OK, but sometimes absolutely NOT. History will tell…

Please read and think. Of course this is a problem when it comes to photo contests.
