Complete Yearbook students continue workshop week with photography, captions

On Aug. 2, the Complete Yearbook class continued to pile on the information and learn how to create a better yearbook.

On this second day of the 2011 MIPA “J-Cation” Workshop, students worked on photography and how to make good captions for those photos. They also learned grammar rules for writing these captions. Instructor Patrice Hornak’s main focus on this day, however, was the who, the what, the when, the where and the why of caption making. Hornak encouraged students to think of new, creative captions using both provided pictures and their own yearbooks. Students had fun imagining names and grades for the people featured, and what exactly they were doing.

I remember the days of creating captions. It always helped it seemed when we got in a big group and shot ideas off of each other
