Abstract

This study explores shifts in photographic routines concomitant with the introduction of the digital camera in photojournalism. Interviews and a survey of professional still photojournalists, working predominantly for daily newspapers in the United States, reveal changes in photographic routines related to the use of the digital camera. Attitudes and opinions on the use of the digital camera are evaluated through three facets of photojournalistic routine: productivity, empowerment and social interaction between subject and photographer. Findings indicate that while the immediacy of the digital camera increases productivity and personal empowerment, attitudes toward how the camera impacts social interaction range from ambivalent to modest agreement among professionals.
