Shooting & Turning In Seniors – 3/28-29

Today (& Tomorrow) your goal is either to begin shooting your photomerges or turn in your senior edits.

Shooting? To begin the process of taking Photomerge images. Here are the particulars:

  • Minimum 7 images for each photomerge creation
  • One outside panoramic
  • One panoramic of a Classroom
  • One panoramic from the Commons area
  • One panoramic from a perspective (low or high angle)

(SPECIAL NOTE::: Any one of these can be substituted by photomerges outside of school time. At home, out of town, at the lake, etc.)

Have a Good Weekend!!
