Changing the photo on your county website's home page
The photo on your county website's home page can be changed up to four times per year (once per quarter). Follow the guidelines below when selecting the photo and submit it to Tom Stanoch to get it reviewed and posted.
- Strong use of candid photography, where subjects are engaged in interaction or tasks at hand. They might be seemingly unaware of the camera or perhaps glancing at it, but most importantly they're captured "in the moment." Authentic and not posed.
- Perspective should primarily be "first person." The goal is for the audience to feel like they're sharing in that moment. This helps increase the emotional connection with the audience and infuses our materials with a strong sense of community -- the "community" of Minnesota, with everyone working together to improve life in our state. Subjects are shot at eye level or from below eye level.
- Use of natural lighting whenever possible
