🔸 Ensure the light is coming from in front of you, not behind you, such that your face is clearly visible without backlighting
🔸 Look directly into the camera, and position yourself just like in a passport photo; making your shoulders and top of the head visible.
🔸 Use a simple background, if accessible.
🔸 Do not wear a hat or sunglasses when taking the self-portrait.
🔸If you’re wearing prescription glasses on the documents provided; wear the glasses when taking the self-portrait too. If no prescription glasses are worn on the documents, please make sure not to wear one either when taking the self-portrait.
