Atlee High School has chosen Candid Color Photography as the official school photographer for the 2019–2020 school year. Seniors who wish to have Candid Color take their senior portraits to include in the 2020 Legend have many options. A summer appointment was sent out by Candid Color and included the different portrait options in further detail. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Candid Color at 1-800-321-4256 or via email.

The goal of the yearbook staff is to include all seniors in the senior section of the yearbook. To meet that goal, the staff advises all seniors to set up their appointments with Candid Color for their yearbook portraits. By using Candid Color, seniors can be certain that their portraits will meet every requirement for the yearbook. Candid Color is the best choice for worry-free senior portraits.

Seniors who wish to schedule their senior portraits with an outside photographer will be responsible for submitting their portrait to the yearbook adviser, Mrs. Kara Greenwood, by Friday, November 15, 2019.

The seniors who do not take advantage of Candid Color’s services must meet the following requirements so that the yearbook can create a high quality senior section:

  • You must submit pictures on a CD following the required formatting specifications or email pictures. 
  • You must submit and label each CD with the photographer’s contact information in case the staff needs to reach the studio.
  • Appropriate male attire is a white shirt, bow tie, and a black tuxedo jacket. We will not accept other attire.
  • Appropriate female attire is a solid black drape, small earrings, and pearls or a thin necklace. We will not accept variations of this attire. 
  • Seniors must be facing the camera directly. You may angle shoulders slightly to the left or right, but both shoulders must be visible. We will not accept over-the-shoulder poses.
  • Portraits must be in clear, sharp focus, not soft focus, and the resolution needs to be 300dpi.
  • Portraits must be against a blue background. Candid Color uses an OM7006 Piroli. Please have your photographer use this background. We will not accept other backgrounds.
  • All portraits should adhere to the following specifications:
    • Head size from the top of the head/hair to the bottom on the chin is 15/16 of an inch.
    • Allow .25 inches of top space above the head/hair.
    • High resolution crop parameters should be 2.25 width x 3.25 height. 

The yearbook staff reserves the right to exclude any photography not up to the Legend standards and/or doesn’t meet all the requirements. If there is any concern about an outside portrait regarding these standards, the yearbook adviser should review the portrait before the November 15 deadline. We will not change the publication deadline. Please note that all CDs you submit by an outside photographer become the property of the Atlee yearbook staff, and we will not return them at the end of the year. Thank you for your support and cooperation.

The yearbook staff is dedicated to producing a memorable publication in which seniors can be proud and keep throughout their life. Please keep in mind that this is a student publication. While we strive to meet high standards, our success is highly dependent on the cooperation from our students and community. We are thankful for all the help provided to reach our goals. Please be sure to show your support by ordering a 2020 Legend at registration in August.
