① Take Numerous Photos
This may seem ovious, but it is often not implemented. Remember, the ID pictures will be worn in plain view every day—it’s worth taking a little extra time to obtain the best possible picture that you can.
You should take several shots, since it won’t cost any more to get the best picture. With digital cameras, you can often show the person a preview of the photo on the camera’s LCD screen. Or, if you use a webcam, you can show the person the picture immediately on the computer screen.
This way, the subject can approve his or her final picture.
