Compromised of seasoned photographers and future yearbook photo editors, the Shoot Like a Pro staff learns important new techniques on how to utilize their cameras like a tried and true field photographer.
“This program is helping me learn how to take better photos,” Charlie Douglas from Troy High School said. “I’m going to be photo editor next year for my yearbook so I need to teach all the new staffers and editors how to take better photos and use their cameras appropriately.”
The responsibility of giving the yearbook aesthetic lies on the shoulders of the photographers and it’s the job of the photo editor to over see these things and make sure the theme is maintained.
Not only does the class benefit future editorial staff, but also the general staff of yearbooks who wish to contribute in big ways.
“This class is really helping me because I haven’t really taken many photos before. It’s my first year on my yearbook staff so I think learning how to take different photos in different places, like, from a gym to an outdoor stadium to different events and different places in general is really helping me in particular,” Jennifer Ash from Howell High School said.
