The school’s yearbook staff seeks to ensure that they will receive photographs of high quality with consistent size, lighting, and color balance. Our objective is to ensure that all seniors receive equal representation in their senior portrait section of the yearbook.
- Senior portraits do not have to be done by a professional photographer. Students can choose to use their school ID photo. All pictures must meet the following specifications.
- Ideally, the picture should be a head and shoulders pose, with the head and shoulders directly facing the camera. However, if the student has a photo that meets ALL the criteria below but is not just head/shoulders – please do NOT crop it down. The yearbook staff will crop the photo once the photograph is placed on the page (see example).
- The pictures can be emailed directly to Brie Stratton (firstname.lastname@example.org) or students can bring in a hard copy of the picture with the student’s name on the back. All pictures will be returned. Mail to the attention of Ms. Stratton, Midlakes High School, Rte. 488, Clifton Springs, NY 14432
- Screenshots and pictures downloaded/saved from sites like Facebook are not acceptable (they do not reproduce well).
- The final deadline for submitting yearbook portraits is November 1.
- The background must be a plain light color.
- Please observe the following restrictions:
- NO OVER THE SHOULDER (head and shoulders must face forward).
- NO HANDS (by your face).
- NO HATS
- NO PROPS OF ANY SORT INCLUDING ANIMALS
- NO CHAIRS, LADDERS, OR FANS
- Proper dress (school dress code must be observed).
- Sharp, clear prints (no soft or defused prints).
- Outdoor pictures are allowed but should have a light colored background and follow all the above criteria.
- Midlakes Reflections Yearbook reserves the right to reject any photo it considers inappropriate, offensive, violates the school dress code, or does not comply with the above criteria.
BABY PICTURES are due NOVEMBER 1 and can be emailed to Ms. Stratton at email@example.com. or mailed to the above address. Be sure to write the student's name on the back of the photograph. Photographs will be returned.
YOUR COOPERATION IN COMPLYING WITH THESE SPECIFICATIONS WILL HELP TO ENSURE CONSISTENT COLOR QUALITY ON THESE VERY IMPORTANT PAGES.
