Photojournalism VS. Faux Journalism: What’s the Difference?

Bridal Party Gets Air At Seascape Beach Resort

Un-posed images, which are often referred to as “candids” are truly photojournalistic when they are captured as naturally occurring events. Faux-journalism, or “Fashion Candids” are staged shots that appear to be un-posed, but did not occur naturally, and required active participation from the subjects. I do these types of shots all the time as requested by my clients, however, since they require dedicated time to accomplish, they need to be scheduled along with other posed shots.
