For some reason, photographic critics have picked the newspaper photographers as the object of theirattack and, with the exception of one or two brief articles in magazines, little or nothing has been said in their favor. In criticizing newspaper and magazine photography, most critics are either attacking something they know little about or are complaining because they would like to know something about the tricks of the trade which enable newsmen to turn out prints of more than fair quality in remarkably quick time. The news photographer has no other defense from an attack on the morals and ethics of his profession than the fact that he must photograph what he is told to without question. If the pictures of today are immoral or questionable, the fault is with the editors and pub lishers and not with the cameraman. The photo grapher can, of course, refuse to take a picture he be 10 PRESS PHOTOGRAPHY WITH MINIATURE CAMERA lieves to be unethical but there is always someone who will take it, and in these times there are man-camera men who cannot afford to jeopardize their jobs because of an ethical question involved in an assignment. The attacks on the technical quality of the pictures made by a news photographer are another matter. Too often they are described as being too contrast, or spotty prints with poor print quality, and this is espe cially true in the case of commercial photographers, many of whom require a truck load of equipment to take a picture that a newspaper photographer could take with a small camera and a single flashbulb. Some professional jealousy exists between these two groups because of the fact that so many press photographers who do commercial work in spare time, charge rates far below those of even the smallest studios. Despite these misunderstandings, thepublic has al ways been interested in the work of the press photo grapher. In motion pictures and magazine stories he is always pictured as a care-free fellow, falling from one scrape into another, but always bringing home the pic ture. Actually, however, press photography is very much like any other business, with regular hours and routine assignments far outbalancing those occasional exciting moments that are experienced at fires, acci dents and murders.
