Start Planning At the Beginning of the School Year
Local PTAs and PTSAs should be collecting electronic action photos of events and activates your PTAs /PTSAs are doing to make a difference in the school and or community. The 4 or 5 photos from each unit will be edited into a slide show at the annual Presidents’ & Principals’ Luncheon held in May. The dead line will be the April 15 of that year. At the beginning of the year the president should assign a person that reviews these instructions, collects photos the entire year, and delivers the photos for the show, maybe the Historian.
What Makes A Good Photo For the Slide Show?
The photos should be people doing something, besides standing in a row (no rows of officers please). CLICK HERE for my “PTA Photo Communication Tips”. Here are somethings that are taken in to consider when choosing the photos to use in the slide show.
- Does photo show PTA involvement of students, teachers, school administrators, and PTA members?
- Is the photo showing an activity that is helping the school?
- Does the photo show action (examples:teaching, reading, feeding, building, etc.).
- Cell Phone photos are fine if you take them on the highest quality setting (the most pixels). Check your phone instructions on how to set to the highest quality.
- Please do not use multiple photo slides, several pictures on one slide. They do not show well on the screen.

As the use of cameras become more portable and easier to use, here are five simple tips and examples that will help spice up make your PTA photos and make them more interesting.
1. Tells a story by showing subjects in action.
Senior sign up (writing) Senior Breakfast (eating & studying)
2. Utilize photo depth of front, middle, back.
3. Zooms in close and cuts out background clutter.
Lost in background Focus on subject & theme
4. Takes advantage of unusual angles (high, low, left or right) and un-leveled camera (¼ twist).
Looking up Camera with a ¼ twist
5. Keeps the subject out of the middle of the frame, think Tic-Tac-Toe.
