Selfie Portraits Heading

SELFIE PORTRAIT DAY IS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27 @ 10:00 AM!

Because this year is so different, the yearbook staff wanted to do something totally different for the student and staff portraits in the yearbook!  In place of the traditional yearbook portraits taken by Lifetouch we will be using selfies for all students and staff in the yearbook.  This will also allow us to include all students and staff, including those who are fully remote and not physically on campus. 

This webpage contains information, instructions, and instructional videos about HOW TO TAKE SELFIE PORTRAITS (inside and outside) and HOW TO UPLOAD YOUR SELFIE PORTRAIT TO THE YEARBOOK STAFF!  

If you have any questions about taking or uploading your Selfie Portrait, please contact Mr. Bentley at cbentley@randolph.k12.nc.us. 

 

Here are some guidelines you can use to keep everyone’s portraits somewhat consistent.  

  • Please take your selfie using a smart phone (because smart phone cameras are AWESOME), but if you do not have a smart phone, please use the webcam on your computer/Chromebook. 
  • Front facing or standing pose only – sit straight up
  • Make sure the photo is from the chest up, no hands visible in the picture
  • No deliberate, crazy facial expressions
  • Stand in front of a blank, one-color wall
  • Regular clothes – no costumes
  • No writing on shirt
  • No off-the-shoulder, spaghetti strap, tank, tube, low-cut, one-strap, halter or see-through tops
  • No hats, visors, caps or head coverings of any kind
  • No sunglasses
  • No props or miscellaneous objects
  • No additional people or pets in the photo, besides the student

    A few more things...

    • Remember to use your POWERSCHOOL STUDENT NAME!
    • Non-obscene graphics, artwork or words on clothing/background of the image arenot be acceptable
    • Clothing accessories such as hats, glasses or jewelry should not be worn
    • DO NOT USE ANY PHOTO FILTERS!!

    Below are some examples of GOOD and BAD selfie portraits!
