Reporter’s Guide to Multimedia Proficiency

- - The Future

I discovered this guide book for journalists–compiled from a series of blog posts by Mindy McAdams, Professor of Journalism at the University of Florida–that teaches reporters how to become more multimedia proficient (download here or visit the download page). I’m sure the section on “How to Shoot Decent Photos” will draw plenty of snickering but there’s good stuff for photographers on audio, video and blogging. Certainly this is a look into the future of journalism as many reporters in small to medium markets will find themselves writing, shooting stills, shooting video, recording audio and then putting it all together on the computer back home and this is what’s being taught in journalism school apparently.

  1. This is exactly what is being taught in journalism schools. Photography schools should be teaching this too. If you only know how to do one or two of these things, best to get friendly with someone who knows how to do the others.
