For large-volume portrait requests
The studio uses the following procedure to take individual portraits of groups:
- After a portrait request is submitted, ASCTech will put a signup sheet online for your faculty, staff or students to sign up for 5-minute slots.
- ASCTech will provide index cards for portrait subjects to write their name on and hold under their chin for the first picture. This ensures that the correct person gets the image.
- ASCTech will take 3-5 pictures of each portrait subject without the card in front of one background.
- ASCTech will put the images into a OneDrive folder for requestors to distribute to your portrait subjects.
