Tips for Taking Photos

  • Camera Setting - Set digital cameras to "high quality" or "fine" for best reproduction in print newsletters.
  • Taking Photos
    • Concentrate as closely as possible on faces/action.
    • Hold the camera steady for clearest results and less chance for blurring.
    • If using a digital camera with a preview feature, preview your photos on the spot to ensure that correct angles are being achieved and that light sources are sufficient.
    • Use a flash when appropriate.
    • Relax! The more at ease you are, the better your results with students and staff. (Remind students to "ignore" the camera when taking action photos to avoid "posed" results.)
  • E-mailing Digital Photos - E-mail your images as individual attachments, not embedded in a Word or PowerPoint document, to
  • Photo Captions - In the body of your e-mail, include the photo names with corresponding names and titles of photo subjects (pictured left to right) and information to be emphasized in the published photo caption.
