Choosing Assignments for the Daily Campus:
Events and tasks will be assigned via email and our Google calendar. 1. If you haven‟t already, create a Google account. 2.

Each event / task will have a „guest‟ assigned to it. If there is no guest listed with the event / task, no photographer has been assigned to it. 5.

If you receive the message, and you can do it, REPLY ALL saying that you are going to do it. That way, I won‟t receive 5 submissions for the same thing.

Images shot in JPEG lack quality, and are more difficult to edit. ***Remember, file size should be measured in MB (megabytes) not KB (kilobytes). If your...
