Create an Organization Photo Directory
Scan or shoot photos of the people that you wish to include in your photo directory.
Photo directories for organizations include pictures as well as the contact information of the people listed. Photographs used in directories may be either formal portraits or candid shots.
2. For formal shots, set up a neutral background and place a chair for the people being photographed in front of it.
?You can simply use a blank wall as the background, or pose the subjects in front of curtains. A more interesting choice is the photographic backdrop paper available from photographic supply stores. Such paper is available in different sizes, and a wide array of colors, textures and patterns, including scenes, clouds, and so on. Using such paper may be a creative addition to the project, but take care you don't choose too busy a background or it detracts from the portraits themselves.
3. Set up your tripod and camera in front of the background.
4. Set your camera to Portrait mode as shown in Figure 17-21.
Find out how to use Portrait mode and flash in Chapter 3.
5. Have the person being photographed sit in the chair, and check the focus of your camera for every person before taking the picture.

Show Photos on Your TV
1. There are frequent occasions when you want to share photos you have recently shot with family or friends. You also might like to use photos in a school or business presentation but don't have time to make a CD-ROM or PowerPoint presentation. Most digital cameras allow you to show photos directly from the camera on a TV set. In order to do this, attach the supplied AV cable to the AV outlet on your camera, as shown in Figure 17-25.
?Most digital cameras have AV outputs and come with appropriate cables to attach the cameras to a TV set to display images. The yellow plug is for video and the white is for audio.
2. Set your camera up in the same way as to display the images in memory on the LCD screen.
See Chapter 4 to find out how to view digital pictures on your LCD screen.
3. Show your photos on your TV for family and friends, as shown in Figure 17-26. You can scroll through the pictures displayed on the TV just as you do viewing on the LCD screen.
