 +====== Standard Operating Procedure ======
 +
 +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!).
 +
 +  - When students enter the photographing area, have them line up from shortest to tallest.
 +  - Have shortest one-third of students sit on bench in front.
 +  - Have the tallest one-third of students stand on the riser at the back.
 +  - Have the middle one-third of students stand on the floor between the other two rows of students.
 +  - Have the teacher stand at the photo-left (class'​ right) end of the middle row of students.
 +  - The front row (seated) should have their hands folded, in their laps.
 +  - Don't forget to have them smile!
 +
 +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. ​ [[http://​www.huffingtonpost.com/​2013/​06/​21/​miles-ambridge-retake-photo_n_3478937.html|See the result.]]
