Sacramento Bee photographer fired for photo manipulation

On the top is a photo of a snowy egret trying to nom on a great egret’s recent grab — a frog. To the right of it is a photo taken moments later that shows the frog in a much better angle. Unfortunate they both couldn’t be in the same shot, right? Apparently photographer Bryan Patrick thought the same thing, because he allegedly merged the two photos together into one. Problem, is, a reader caught the Photoshop job, and now Patrick is out of a job this morning. “After The Bee published a correction and apology online Wednesday and in print Thursday,” the paper wrote in an apology this morning, “editors reviewed a selection of Patrick’s work and found two additional digital alterations that violate The Bee’s standards.” Patrick did a very bad no-no for photojournalism.
