In the thread about oversized proof sheets, someone pointed to a repeating easel, which allows one to print multiple images on the same sheet of paper. It suddenly brought back the memory of my own school photos, that I received as sheets containing multiple copies of various format. And it made me realize another thing: throughout all the years that I was in primary/secondary school (until 16 y/o), I never paid any attention to the kind of cameras school photographers were using. Funny, since now I spend so much energy and time on photography, and my dad has been a dedicated amateur for years as well. So what was used in the analog days to make portraits of us little critters? How did you deal with such a huge volume of negative? What films? Formats? Lighting sets? My own school years go from the mid 80s to the mid 90s, but I would be interested in other eras as well.
