I worked as the night photo editor for Metro News Canada, and it was tedious. Working at least hundred images a night, and sometimes way over on busy nights. And it gets way even busier nearing the holiday season. But there are nights that are fun, when you are asked to do photo illustration, like these two that I have worked on.
Most times, you get to see photos before the paper hits the streets the next day. You also realize that, some would fabricate or manipulate photos for a lot of reasons, and through the whole time, the work trains to easily catch what is, and is not manipulated.
Yes, the two and a half years that I worked as a photo editor was challenging, but also fun.
