Make sure your photos reflect connections and community and are not staged.
From the Rotary Voice and Visual Identity Guidelines, when choosing or
shooting new photography, aim for the following:
  • Editorial or reportage style (fly on the wall)
  • Candid poses or natural portraits
  • Real, natural, sincere, endearing expressions
  • Demonstrations of active leadership and impact
  • Special moments of camaraderie, friendship, warmth, and celebration
  • Movement and momentum
  • Rich, full color, or black-and-white
  • Short depth-of-field with selective focus (people shot through crowds)
  • Wide angles
  • Natural backgrounds and real context (not solid-portraiture backdrops or studio photography)
