It's school photo day! Time to take those lasting photos that will forever remind students of the great times and good friends they had in their younger days!
As the school photographer, you are given this set of procedures for getting all of the classes' photos taken in one day and making sure they have a professional and uniform appearance (note: I made this list up. This is not meant to be a representation of the actual photographer's procedures for the photo given below!).
Now, view the following article from the Edmonton Journal (and two global media accounts of the same story) to see one class' photo, and how one parent reacted.
How would you change the list of photographer's procedures above to prevent this from happening? Do “the rules” ever cause the problem?
By the way, the school orchestrated a re-take of the above photo. See the result.
