A reporter's job or role is to essentially report news. It involves two steps: To collect information (from all possible sources) and then you write down the story in a journalistic style. (Remember you are writing for a reader/listener/viewer/surfer.)

A blogger’s role is to write something that interest them alone, whether it might not interest to many readers. They try to make something interesting at their own satisfaction and a kind of trying to share some topic through their blog.
Actually I am not writing about reporter or blogger but just to share my experience with other photographers and bloggers to get a best angle for any interesting object or events.

I was at the KDCA hall last year to get the picture of the winner of the beauty contest when I only mange to snap the hands, head and camera of the photographer as I cannot get to the front. I was frustrated then but this year I was well prepared and took a very good spot but out of almost 20 shots I took only about half were good due to jostling of photographers behind me which unable me to take good pictures. I only uses cyber-shot camera and I guess I need sponsors to buy me one. Interested of having the Nikon D90, which is very expensive, that is more than RM4K.

I took pictures of fellow photographer during my niece wedding just for fun then but during the Kaamatan festival at KDCA, again I took pictures of them with their antics and expensive cameras.

Looking at some of the photographer, most of them are professional working for a living out of the pictures they took and a sizeable number with cyber-shot camera mostly bloggers or individuals and tourists.
