In the early days, there were a handful of professional photographers. They had busy days and lots of income at the Graduation Ceremonies. Some (e.g Mg Mg Hnyutt) employed relatives and friends for the ad hoc assignments (shooting and developing films).

The graduates and their families could only take photos with their own cameras outside the Convocation Hall.

Some who forgot to buy (or chose not to buy) their graduation photos found them on Boards / Posters with “teasing” captions.

Now, even children can take photos and videos with smart devices (phones, pads, …).

They would smile when we talk about using Box Cameras, Yashica Mat and black and white film rolls (typically 12 and 24 prints). Many could not afford professional cameras with high quality lens and filters.
