Image Truth/Story Truth, October 16, 2015

Below, a few frames from the recent Columbia Journalism School conference on the state of photojournalism in the digital age, as a genre, a vocation, and as an industry, organized by Nina Berman and Gary Knight.

In the interest of "image truth," one of our central concerns, I disclose herewith that I processed these digitally captured Canon images in Camera Raw and Photoshop. Some or all of the following adjustments were made to the images in Camera Raw: increased or decreased exposure; sharpened; corrected color temperature; raised midtones (using curves); set black and white points; added vibrance and clarity; burned or dodged.

Written reflections on the event to follow.
