Aside from the new theme, nothing really changed. The hardware and software stayed the same so I didn’t have to learn any new skills. Working with underclassmen and less-experienced staff was definitely a new experience as I did have to teach a little. What I’ve Learned
Going to Division 1 university next year, I’m going to take my photography with me. I hope to work with the newspaper there and be able to photograph all of the various sports teams. What I wanted to learn was more practical skills for the future. Photojournalism as a class taught me a rather uniform method of production. What I want to learn
In hindsight, the 3 years of Yearbook have been rather uniform. It seems to always be the same process: deadline, deadline, deadline. Although, I guess there isn’t really any other way to do it, the class can feel repetitive. In hindsight
The first slide I worked on was arguably the best. We received permission to transform the right side of the page into a mini-showstopper to feature the Nudist Buddhist Café. It was fun to work on because I was able to go to an opening and photograph the nonprofit.
I liked working on this spread because it was comical to feature everyone dressed up in Halloween costumes.
I thoroughly enjoyed this spread. Hearing very early on where my peers were going to college was uplifting. Interviewing the seniors and learning how they thought was also interesting.
Honestly, scoreboards was the most boring spread I’ve worked on in my 3 years with the staff. Having to type the names and scores in a specific typeface and manner was monotonous to say the least.
Photographing the Nudist Buddhist Café was a very enjoyable experience. Luke was sure to notify me of anything happening and made me feel more than welcome.
