Photography tips for newspaper:

  • focus on only one or two people, not a large group
  • make people stand uncomfortably close together
  • use the highest resolution possible on your digital camera
  • send an unedited image—don’t photoshop–so that we can adjust for printing and web
  • use as much light as possible; an image that looks great on screen will be darker on the page
  • when in doubt—take more photos

We will not pay for information or interviews.
