I actually really liked this newsletter. I thought the design was simple, but still caught my eye. Repetition was used with colors and fonts. Many pictures were used, so it wasn't all type. Alignment was consistent throughout the page, and white space was utilized pretty well. The color green contrasted very well with the dull white page.

Week 3 Post!

The codes of ethics about photo J:
1. Do not alter the picture in any way
2. Photos should look real (no angles or silhouettes)
3. Photos can be used together only for artistic value and not interpretation
4. Can edit fictitious photos
5. Ask yourself if it is really a good idea to alter photos

The outlines set above are excellent guides because they instill honesty and trust for both the media producing them and the readers. As readers, we tend to get lost in what we read, and at times can and will believe anything. We rely on these laws and journalists to relay accurate and correct information.

Obviously, I think these guidelines are extremely important for PR people. Everyday they will deal with photos of their clients or products, and what if that photo is alter in a negative twist? Hello, that’s why they are getting their degrees! :) However, as far as being an advertising major, it is important for us to be able to go in and edit photos. Our job is to help create and establish needs and wants in our potential and existing consumers. We can exaggerate pictures; brighten color, etc, as long as it is not taken to the extreme. The fun part of our job is blurring the lines of reality, but not to the point that viewers cannot determine the unrealistic characteristics.
