    50% real and 50% DIY... Its almost true we sometimes need to DIY some shots to have the PJ kind of photos we wanted.

    I remember reading about an incident in the 80s (in a Brit photography mag) which kind of bent the rules of photojournalism:
    - there was a streaker at a football match the photog was covering
    - photog didn't like the shots he got
    - photog approached the streaker in courthouse grounds (after he was charged I guess), and asked him for a staged repeat performance
    - Voila! a perfect shot of the streaker, shot at an angle from which you couldn't see the empty stands

    Streaker? Or do you mean striker?

    "Streaking is the act of running nude through a public place."

    Why would a striker be charged in court?

    Never heard of strikers being charged in UK? I guess you are either not a soccer fan or haven't been keeping up the soccer news for long, long time. Jokes asides, I get your point. Streaker.
