There are few things that students can do to prepare for a school yearbook picture, such as make sure they have a good appearance, wear the appropriate clothes and accessories and be aware of their facial expressions before getting the picture taken. One of the most important is the person's appearance with respect to the hair and makeup if it is a female. The hairstyle should be simple and neatly combed.
The face is the next place to focus on. For a girl, she should have natural looking makeup and boys may look better if they are clean shaven or facial hair is well groomed.
Students can also pick out the outfit they plan to wear a few days before the pictures are taken. Most yearbook pictures focus on the face, so dark clothing may be suitable to place emphasize on the face. It also is advisable to stay away from loud patterned clothing. Similarly, accessories should be kept to a minimum.
Facial features and expressions are an important factor in taking yearbook pictures. Student should try to have a natural expression and smile. It may be a good idea to find the best face angle, where the person is facing the camera directly. The head tilted slightly may be a good angle for some people. If the photographer takes a few pictures, students should pick the one that looks the most natural.
