The First Amendment means from a collegiate standpoint is that we have freedoms but as a student we can’t take it for granted. As a student, journalists think that they have all the rights in the world but according to the five freedoms the rights are limited. It also means that if journalists are to go into this profession the First Amendment is always going to be key in terms of taking photos which may violate someone’s privacy without knowing it.
Now in terms of the lesson itself, I can come to the conclusion that it is more to it then just taking photos and posting it on a blog with the proper captions. Journalists need to be super careful when invading someone’s privacy because they can just take photos and not knowing that is violating their privacy.
Also a lesson learned is that the code of ethics can easily be broken and not even know it. It is more to photojournalism then just taking actual photos and posting it on a blog with the proper captions. Journalists need to be careful of privacy, violating any of the amendments, false lights, intrusion and especially copyrighting somebody else’s photo without their permission.
