Getting Your Photographs Taken:


Necessary photos
The necessary photos are: 2 Lateral, side view, 2 oblique (3/4 view) and 1 frontal view.

Frontal View
This view is full image of the head. The image should include areas from the top of the head to the bottom of the chin. Both ears should show.

Right & Left Lateral
The left and right lateral views should include the entire head (from back to front).

Right & Left Oblique
The oblique views should align the tip of the nose with the opposite cheek. The image should show the entire head from the top of the head to the chin, and tip of nose to the back of the head.

View from Below
The view from below (worm's eye view) should align the tip of the nose between the eyebrows. Zoom in to show the top of the forehead to the lower lip and just beyond the outside edges of the eyelids.

It is important that you use a zoom lens with sufficient lighting and a solid color background for these photos. Any camera with a zoom lens at full magnification should be sufficient for these pictures. Please do not use a point and shoot wide angle lens, as it will distort the face and nose.
