Most photojournalists have trained on hard news pictures. This is very valuable experience. It teaches the photographer to handle human situations and to reach the stage where he can predict the picture that is coming. The good photographer unconsciously studies people's movements, attitudes, expressions. He watches and waits for the significant moment. I do not like pictures where the subject is reacting to you, the photographer. The best pictures result when the subjects react to each other. The photographer is a witness, not a participant. Many people imagine this leads to cold, impersonal pictures. Not at all. Framing, focusing, moment of shooting; all these controls give the photographer the opportunity of creating a very personal statement.
