Innovative and creative yearbook ideas? Right this way! We have just the yearbook and ideas to help you out.
Tell your school’s story through pictures. It’s time to get inspired, get motivated and get going on your school’s best yearbook ever!
Planning ahead makes all the difference. That’s why we use the Ladder Diagram approach. This chart helps you plan your yearbook from page 1 to the end! Once you know the pictures you need to include in your yearbook, then the fun really begins–taking the pictures!
Here are some tips to get you started:
- Make a list of the group photos you’ll need to take (or receive) from organizations, clubs and sports teams
- Make a list of events to be photographed (don’t forget to coordinate with your volunteers and PTO members!)
- Assign pictures to photographers and communicate your vision/what’s needed for each yearbook page
- If you have other photographers working to gather pictures, provide them with a quick one sheet of tips for great images. Below are some suggestions (with a link to our Photo Types one sheet)
Quick Photo Tips
Think about your photos as a way to capture the moment–your subject, an action, a reaction or emotions. Make it fun and use different points of view to express different moods and feelings.
- Think about the subject’s point of view when taking the pictures; this can bring an interesting perspective to the shot.
- Have a mix of photo types throughout the yearbook. Think about location, interaction, close-ups and details or action shots.
