Tips on How To Take Your Own Passport Photo

When I say you can “take pictures at home”, I mean you can take them in all kinds of ways, indoors and out, in daylight and at night, in any weather. I’ve done that a million times over the years.

Taking pictures on your smartphone can be a real pain. First, you need a device that has a front-facing camera and flash. Then, you need the right lighting and environment to get the perfect shot.

 Here’s what I’d suggest:

  1. Choose a White Wall or Door
  2. Ensure that the setting you’ve chosen has good lighting
  3. Set up your camera or cell phone
  4. Set a timer on the device or ask someone to take the picture for you
  5. Sit in front of the device and hold your pose till the photo clicks
  6. Choose the best photo from the ones you took

It’s easy to think you need to take one perfect photo, but most of us can’t take a single photo without multiple shots. Instead of waiting until the perfect moment, choose a few photos and then select the one you think is best.
