Ethics (Photography versus life or death, film or digital)

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Steven M. Scharf, Feb 10, 2004.

  1. You're in Miami. There is great chaos, caused by a hurricane and floods. You
    are a Time Magazine photographer and you are in the middle of this disaster.
    You've got cameras around your neck and are taking pictures while trying to
    help save people.

    There are houses and people floating around you, disappearing into the
    water. Suddenly you see a man in the water, fighting for his life, trying
    not to be taken away by the masses of water and mud. Somehow the man looks
    familiar. Suddenly you know who it is - it's George W. Bush!

    You see that the raging waters are about to sweep him away. You have two
    options. You can save him or you can take the best photo of your life.

    Should you use film or digital?

    Since Digital will be heavier, hang that round his neck :)

  5. Neither. Tell him it's oil, not water, so he'll die happy.

    Should you regurgitate old jokes that were posted before?
