Digital Photojournalism is dedicated to instruction and theory of digital processes and tools for the study of photojournalism. Currently, the best-selling photojournalism textbooks provide only a chapter or two on digital issues and technology; Digital Photojournalism is an entire book on the subject. Co-authored by a photojournalism professor at the University of North Texas and an Assistant Managing Editor of Visuals for The Dallas Morning News, the book merges two worlds of photojournalism - the academic and the professional - and incorporates the information essential to both. The book covers current practices in the professional field such as transmitting and archiving - information that those interested in photojournalism will need to know as they pursue careers in the field. Legal and ethical issues are also discussed. For interested beginners in digital photojournalism.
