Unformatted text preview: PHOTO CAPT/0N5 -— 377 Nearly all AP captions follow a simple formula: * The first sentence of the caption describes what the photo shows, in the present tense, and states where and when the photo was made. It must ALWAYS include the day and date the photo was made (e.g., Friday, Jan. 29, 2003). * The second sentence of the caption gives background on the news event or describes why the photo is significant. * Whenever possible, try to keep captions to no more than two concise sentences, while including the relevant information. Try to anticipate what information a newspaper editor or reader will need. N on-publishable information in the body of the caption should be set off by dual asterisks (**) as in the examples below. THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE STANDARD AP CAPTION: The Mississippi River flows through a hole in the Snay Island, 111., levee, flooding farmland and homes 10 miles south of Quincy, 111., Sun- day, July 25, 1993. About 2,000 people were evacuated from the 44,000 acres that flooded. (AP Photo /Bill Waugh) DO NOT use DESCRIPTIVE OVERLINES such as: 1. SAFE AT SECOND—For a baseball play at second base, or PRESI- DENT ADDRESSES WOMEN-~For a presidential speech to a women’s group. Regulap-captions have N O overlines. INSTRUC'I' IVE OVERLINES will be used in the following cases: 1. For FILE PHOTOS the word FILE will be the OVERLINE, set off by twin asterisks. Example: **FILE** New York Knicks’ Patrick Ewing is bowled over b Charlotte Hornets’ Larry Johnson in this May 12, 1993, file photo during . (AP Photo / Ron Frehm, File] 2. For ADVANCES the OVERLINE is the word ADVANCE and the RE LEASE DATE. Do not use story slugs or writer’s name in the OVERLINE. Example: **ADVANCE FOR MAY 15-16** Sean Smith, a fish culturist at Vermont’s new fish hatchery in Grand Isle, Vt., one of the Lake Cham— plain islands, moves young rainbow trout'on May 4, 1993, to a new tank. (AP Photo /Toby Talbot) 3. For SPECIALS the OVERLINE should be the word SPECIAL and the name of the publication. Do not use the authorizing editor in the OVER- LINE. Also, if the city is not part of the formal title of the publication’s name, add it. Put SPCL in the subcategory field of the NAA/IPTC header.

A month ma before Olmsted’s stay in the meadow, President Lincoln signed a con— I vo] gressional act establishing a grant to reserve two areas of what today is am Yosemite, the valley and a southerly grove of sequoias. After his expedi— a u tion Olmsted wrote a report for the California legislature then govern- age ing the grant. The document is a landmark expression of the principle am that a government should set aside places of signal scenic value for its the citizens. Central to his reasoning is the belief that scenic beauty both car- calms and invigorates a human nervous system. axit His report, with its timeless guidelines, never reached the legislature mm and remained unpublished until 1952. In the meantime, certain com- um mercial endeavors got established in the valley and metastasized. tati; 106 NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC - JANUARY 2005 S’d‘e‘rokee Sklc .ol‘ - qv'Vu _" _. mW—nuflif‘ -~<"‘ " i“ 1' .' . . 1 . - .c -. _ . -, r .V ring? a - _ h __‘_._...,_.. 1 _. --.,_ _—.__—- ,_-—_ _ -. -,:,..,-,_-.. .tn—L.~~_ Wm ¢ ." ifli-Tufihr‘ . . ., a Fri-{R}; ' ski-:11" .- s pie that melts on my tongue with such decadent sweetness that it surely Eager to venture beyond must violate a dozen biblical tenets. her family’s farm, Martha Edith’s husband, Bill, who has a long white beard similar to Herman Diehl worked as a seam- Neff’s, refills my coffee and explains his secret for brewing the perfect cup. stress, babysitter, and “You never pour boiling water over the grounds,” he tells me. “I learned deli manager before scrap- that in the egg business.
