1.Image one is a photo of the bronze statue of the Towson University mascot (Tiger Doc)  I like this picture because it is a powerful representation of Doc (mascots name). This photo is a powerful representation because it gives students and spectators the image of pride, confidence, and school spirit. I almost feel as if Doc is patrolling the grounds in front of Stephen’s Hall, as if he is the protector of Towson University. The low angle shot shows just how powerful Doc is.

2.  Image two is a photo of some of the beautiful landscaping on campus. This photo was taken in the early morning on Sunday March 5, 2016. I like this photo because you can see the sun shining off of the plant as if it is just sprouting up out of the ground receiving life and power from the sun. I also like the fact that you can distinguish between the  foreground, background, and middle ground. I like the anesthetic affects of the background being out of focus this effect is a depth cue to show depth within the frame it also helps to distinguish between the different elements of the composition.

3 Image three  Is a photo of a  intern with the Towson sports network laughing hysterically after seeing one of her counterparts conducting a post game interview inside Towson Field-house.

I really enjoyed this exercise I think all three images follow the rule of thirds and basic compositional rules you should follow when taking pictures. I also think all of these photos are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. In each one of these photos I think it shows a different perspective of life on Towson University.

The impact that social media has on the sports journalism landscape today.

For women in sports journalism, social media ‘can be an ugly place’ By Shannon Ryan of the Chicago Tribune  discusses the cause-and-effect that social media has on female journalist.

Social media can be a great place for journalists of our era to get their stories out to the public in a timely fashion. Many journalists of today use social media as a platform to interact with their readers.

Many journalists would say social media is a more convenient way to stay in the loop and start the conversation with viewers and followers alike but, according to some social media is a dark ugly place.  “For anyone in the public eye, social media can be an ugly place,” said Doris Burke a veteran sideline reporter and color analyst for ESPN.

The article that I have referenced above speaks about the criticism and flat-out sexist comments made about female journalists who cover sports today. This article points out all the wrongs that we face as a society today, even when it comes to something which most of us love sports.

Social media indeed can be a great place to find out the latest scores, news and information about your favorite team but it shouldn’t be a place to bash journalists due to their race, religion, sexual orientation, etc.
