There are many people who do not like their passport picture because for many
of us it is not so comfortable to ask the photographer in a passport photo
service to retake a photo. Take it under your own control and make a passport
photo which you really like.
We will explain how to take your own passport photo. You don’t have to go
to a passport photo service - save your money and time. You do not need
to know any specifications or requirements, because we will take care about that.
All you need to do is to take some shots and then make a couple of mouse
clicks or phone taps at visafoto.com.
If you do not already have a photo, there is an instruction how to take your own picture:
First, you will need a camera with resolution of 5 Megapixels or higher,
a white or off-white wall or white sheet. Using a modern smartphone is OK.
Wear the clothes that will be in a contrast with your background (i.e. not white).
Put the camera about 5-7 feet (1.5-2 meters) from your face and make
sure that it is on the same level as the face.
Make a neutral face expression, do not smile and keep your mouth closed.
Look straight to the camera.
Do not wear tinted glasses your eyes should be fully visible.
You should be alone with no other objects on the photo.
Once you got a photo, download it to your computer and start using visafoto.com .
Or if you took a shot with a smartphone, then go to visafoto.com right in its browser.
