Tell a story with reportage photography
Reportage photography should reflect the atmosphere of the moment and tell its own story. Think of a wedding pictures, birth pictures, sports report or news report. There is often confusion about reportage photography. One person sees an event as a report and the other person calls a portrait of a family a report. The word is often misused, so we go deeper into what reportage photography actually is.
With a photo report, the photographer tells a story. The images that the photographer makes are not put in scene and give a picture of what is actually happening, a kind of summary of the day. For a reportage photographer that means constant observation and reaction. The viewers must be able to feel the emotion and it must appear as if they were there at the time of the photo.
