Ethics in Photography

Ethics in Photography

Everything in this world has ethics. Ethics are nothing but a set of moral principles which have to be followed whenever you’re performing/doing an activity. Today’s generation people are easily deceived by what they see or hear. This is all because of the media and thanks to them, people start believing in false information and create a ruckus out of it. 

Photography also has some ethics which need to be followed. Let’s say; in real life, the colour of the sky is ‘sky blue’. But what do the photographers do is that they change the colour of the sky to dark blue/turquoise/teal blue. Sometimes they edit the photos so much that it looks discomforting to the eye.

Ethics can be cultural too. A photographer should not violate cultural ethics by clicking false photos of someone or a group of people. He/she is invading their personal space. What the photographers do is that they create a different back story of the photo and gain public attention.
