Sweet. I can't remember that far back of what we had...However, remembering making a pin-hole camera out of a oat meal box in 1st grade....it left a huge impression on me....My eyes lit up and thought cool, now in about 25 years I want a Digital Rebel 300D when I grow up! Haven't grown up yet, as most men don't (smile)...But I have my Rebel don't I? Hee-Hee...

Although, I do wish when I was in HS...I had the advance classes in art, photography, web design ect...But then in the 80's computers were just begining to get all smart on us...as well with imput devices such as any digital camera...However, I won't trade the 80's for nothing....glad to see that HS students can have such equipment to learn and grow...good at a early age instead of 30 something...Glad to see that you get to use those camera in school eswik...

:D I was a bit surprised at first when my teacher said "Hey, who knows, if the budget allows it, we might get a 300mm or even 500mm lense for sports shots."

When I was in high school, if we wanted to take a picture, we had to use our charcoal pencils and just draw real quick.

HOLY CRAP!! *coughs* You lucky dog! I loved my yearbook classes, but heck, we never got such nice cameras! -_- Now in college...heh, it's like a 3 person team and I'm not sure how to even contact them to get on the staff!

Are you telling me that you aren't going to be developing your own film in a darkroom? That would be sad, indeed. Developing film and making your own prints is essential to learning the basics of the craft. Ahh, times they are a-changin'.

we learn that in photo class, which I'm not taking. That would be fun, but it just isn't practical w/ Yearbook, when we have to work with thousands of pictures...

Is the yearbook in college as big of a deal as in high school?

How is this yearbook in US. We don't have books like this in Iceland but it is maybe something I could get started here. Can you tell me more?

Yearbooks are really big [at least ours are] books filled with photos of campus life, school events, memories, sports, and all the students. And of course to get signatures from friends w/. It's just a memorabilia we get at the end of the year [if you pay that is. Our is $75-$100]

Maybe I am dating myself here, but we actually had a DARKROOM for our yearbook stuff...

We have a darkroom too, but that's for the photo class. It wouldn't be practical for us to develop thousands of photos ourselves.

Yup :D Our school district actually has annual yearbook competitions to see which school has the best yearbook.

Wow! I mean, do people actually take these as classes instead of regular stuff like geography and stuff? Do you get academic credit for this kind of thing?

(I'm from the UK and we don't really have yearbooks in general, though a few schools ape the USA, and if we did I think assembling it would be an extra-curriculum thing. So I'm really curious).

Our highschool system has 6 periods. 4 academics [math, english, history, science] and 2 electives. Elective classes are usually Physical Education, a team sport, a foreign language, visual arts class, etc. Yearbook counts as an elective class.

My classes are the 4 academics, tennis, and yearbook

Wow! That's interesting, it seems (to me) a high ratio of elective subjects. Not saying it's a bad thing, just surprised at the balance.

From what I can tell, sadly no. No one has even mentioned it unless I ask and as I said, it's a 3 person team at my school. I have yet to find anyone to ask about it ask well, so I don't even know if I can work on staff. The big thing on campus is the newspaper (which comes out weekly), and the poor little yearbook cubicle (seriously, 1 cubicle) is right across from the newspaper office...I wonder if we steal our images from the paper even... I know I've seen a photographer walking around with a Canon 10D (I think) already shooting photos (officially because he had a school nametag).
