Ensure that the face is clear of obstructions (eg no glass, hair away from ears and forehead). Look straight into the camera, which should be held at eye level for face front on photo. The camera should be looking straight at the ear and in line with the shoulder. The camera should be held at waist height for the standing photo and the subject should be barefooted (no shoes). The fingers should be together for the hand photo. Ask yourself...do your completed photo angles look like the examples?
