Photojournalism is the process of storytelling using the medium of photography as your main storytelling device. While a journalist will use their pen and paper to tell stories, a photojournalist will use their camera to capture the visual representation of a story. This Photo Of The Day captures soldiers of Slovenian Special Forces with full gear including a ballistic helmet with night vision goggles, FN SCAR rifle with EOTech sights and a sidearm from Glock.
