Nowadays, there are different ways of communication in the journalism, like the radio, television, newspapers and Internet.

Our technology improves with the time and makes that some media become more useful and other media become less useful. One of the questions we make ourselves is what it’s going to happen with the journalism.

There are a lot of different answers which some of them are optimistic and positive about the journalism and other answers that are pessimistic and negative about this job.

As a conclusion, we have a positive visionof the future of journalism and we don't believe that the four current media are going to disappear. Despite of the fact that they have the same function, they present different ways to inform.

A lot of people believe in the extinction of the newspapers. We think that newspapers, television and radio are compatible with Internet, and the duty of the journalist is look for new functions for this media.

On one hand, Internet is a new media and has mistake. On the other hand, our society doesn`t like the changes. That's why a lot of people prefer traditional media.

Photojournalism is a particular form of journalism  based in collecting, editing, and presenting of news material for publication, that creates images in order to tell a news story. 
Since the 1960s, electronic flash, auto-focus, better lenses and other camera enhancements have made picture taking easier. New digital cameras free photojournalists from the limitation of the film roll length, as thousands of images can be stored on a memory card.
Formerly, nearly 30 minutes were needed to transmit a single color photograph from a place to a news office for printing. Now, equipped with a digital camera, a cellphones and a laptop computer, a photojournalist can send a high-quality image in minutes, even seconds after he/she takes the photo. 
 There is some concern by news photographers that the profession of photojournalism as it is known today could change to such a degree that it is unrecognizable as image-capturing technology naturally progresses.
 However, the widespread use of cameras as a way of reporting news did not come until the advent of smaller, more portable cameras that used the enlargeable film negative to record images.
The age of the citizen journalist and the attainment of news photos from amateur photographers have contributed to the art of photojournalism.

  1. I believe that photojournalism is a very valid form of journalism. A photography often can capture things that words cannot. It’s said, a picture is worth a thousand of words. The hardness of a situation, the faces of the image, feeling, focus ... these are things that can not be displayed with the words and if you see a picture is enough.
    We often don’t appreciate the work of photographers. We often believe that they make as a hobby and therefore should not be rewarded. This is not true, and I think we should value more the work, not only in journalism, so in all cases.
    The photography will always report something, they describe a situation, show you a style, a life, they try to sell something ... So I think that photojournalism is something important for our society.
