It looks great right?
Not after we have to crop it!
It now is still 4 units high, 
but only 3 units wide.
PLEASE SEND A "PORTRAIT!"
 
PLEASE BE AWARE:
MORE BODY IN THE PHOTO
EQUALS SMALLER FACE
 
Check out these examples
of our cardboard senior!
NO SELFIES!!!
Please don't send us photos...
even remotely as horrible...
as the following examples!

Horribly AWKWARD Poses!
 
The background distracts
from these students!
These are blurry!
Crooked much?
Too much flash!
Glasses Glare!
Either all sun or all shadow,
BUT NOT HALF!
No red eye!
Distractions in front 
of these students!
TOO DARK!
The student is not
the focus in these photos.
Something else 
catches the eye!
We call this,
"TREE HAIR!"
Is this a
Genuine Smile?
COMING SOON!
SUN REMOVES HAIR
AND BACKGROUND
MAKES HAIR DISAPPEAR!
