Error: Illumination appears to be poor
When you upload your photo for the US visa or passport online application
on the US department of state website you may get this error
The submitted photo did not meet the image quality requirements,
Illumination appears to be poor.
This error may happen because of several different problems:
Hair comes close to eyes
Shadows around eyes
Face lit not evenly: one half is bright and another is in shadow
Overall illumination and brightness of the photo is bad
Background is bad and not light and uniform enough
