Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
With our research we wanted to know if, and in that case how the ongoing de-professionalization of photojournalism could have any impact on the technical quality of the pictures that was being published in the two Swedish newspapers Skånska Dagbladet and Sydsvenska Dagbladet Snällposten. Our research is founded in Gunnar Nygren’s (2008b) theories concerning professionalization and de-professionalization. For our research we designed a method to systematically analyze and categorize the pictures origin and size, but also to categorize the technical quality of the pictures by exposure, white balance and focus. This was supplemented with interviews with decision-makers at both of the newspapers. Through our quantitative research we could see that Skånska Dagbladet had published a larger amount of technically incorrect pictures. Something that was also discussed in our interviews.Our research gave us the information we needed to come to the conclusion that the ongoing de-professionalization brings with it a negative change to the pictures that are being published in the two newspapers.
