Subject: BS: Ethical Question
From: Clinton Hammond
Date: 04 Oct 05 - 06:57 PM

This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally. The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.





Test Question: You are in New Orleans to be specific. There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster.

The situation is nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury. Suddenly you see a man floundering in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down with the debris.

You move closer . . . somehow the man looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is. It's George W. Bush!! At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him under, forever.

You have two options--you can save the life of G. W. Bush, or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful men.

So here's the question, and please give an honest answer:







Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?

We've had this one before. It involved some other natural disaster, but it featured the same political one.

Sheeessssssssss. You got me on that one. I had just decided that of course I would save the man- and hope that the experience would get him laughed out of politics. And then I saw your question. Sheeeesssss.

for the last 10 years i've standardised for the convenience
and exposure latitude
of medium speed colour neg film..

ease of processing anywhere..

and can always photoshop to reasonable quality monchrome..


though in that situation i'd be very cautious of getting my camera too wet.

Black and white, its more dramatic. Of course, if there was any blood involved I would want to use colour.

You're in Miami. There is chaos around you, caused by a   hurricane and floods of biblical proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper, trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water. Nature is showing all its destructive fury.   You see a man in the water; he is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken away with the water and debris. You move closer. Somehow he looks familiar. Suddenly, you realize ... it's George W. Bush! At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him under, forever. You have two options. You can save the life of George W.   Bush, or you can shoot a Pulitzer Prize winning photo documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful men. Now, here's the question: Would you use color film, or go with the classic simplicity of black and white?
Thread: A Moral Dilemma, Feb. 2004)

Subject: A Moral Dilemma

I have a moral question for you. This is an imaginary situation, but I think it is fun to decide what one would do. The situation: You are in the Midwest, and there is a huge flood in progress. Many homes have been lost, water supplies compromised and infrastructures destroyed. Let's say that you're a photographer out getting still photos for a news service, traveling alone, looking for particularly poignant scenes. You come across George W. Bush who has been swept away by the floodwaters. He is barely hanging on to a tree limb and is about to go under. You can either put down your camera and save him, or take a Pulitzer Prize winning photograph of him as he loses his grip on the limb.

So, here's the question and think carefully before you answer the question below: > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > Which lens would you use? > >
(Thread moral dilemma, Jan 2001)


This is a little test that only has one question, but will say a lot about youIt is important to answer only after long reflection and after having been careful to read everything. An honest answer will make it possible to evaluate your sense of morals. This has to do with an imaginary situation, in which you must make an important decision. Be honest! Scroll down slowly and read the text as it appears. It is important for the test not to go too fast in order to not answer too quickly or without having understood exactly what is at stake. You are in Florida. . .. . . more precisely, in Miami. You find yourself in a situation of complete chaos after a horrendous flood. . . incredible quatities of water are everywhere. You are a photographer for CNN. . .. . . and you are in the midst of this disaster You are attempting to take the photo that will make you famous. . .. . . and houses are being washed away by the raging water around you people are drowning. Nature's destructive forces are destroying. . .. . . and sweeping away everything in their path. Suddenly, you see a man in a jeep. . .. . . he is trapped in his vehicle and fighting against the waves. You move closer. . .. . . and are astounded to notice. . .. . . that you recognise him: it's G. W. Bush! You notice that he only has a few second before he is carried away by the current. . .. . . but you can save him! However, it's also the occasion to take the photo that will make you famous. . .. . . the photo that will win you the Pulitzer Prize and that will make you fabulously rich! the photo of the death of the world's most powerful man, in a position even more pathetic than Saddam when he was arrested. Now answer the question and be totally honest:
Matt or glossy?

Drag the bastard out. He shouldn't be allowed to escape the just results of his ineptitude so easily.

Then shoot of a whole roll of him looking like a drowned rat, so everyone can see he hasn't the capacity to save his own hide, let alone solve the country's problems.

If it were anyone other than GW, I would save him, even if it meant losing a very expensive camera, and coming back with no pics. That's why I never considered a career in journalism.

Here's another ethical problem (?) for you! What would you do ?

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night. You pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus:
1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.
Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car.

Think before you continue reading.

This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application.
You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first; or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect dream lover again.
The candidate who was hired (out of 2000 applicants) had no trouble coming up with this answer:

"I would give the car keys to my old friend, and let him take the lady to the hospital. And I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the woman of my dreams."
Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought limitations.
Never forget to "Think Outside of the Box."

BUT....
       ... the correct answer is to run the old lady over and put her out of her misery, shag the perfect partner against the bus stop and drive off for a beer with the old friend
