The ID photo – what can often be a dreaded experience (everyone has an ID photo in their wallet they aren’t particularly fond of) doesn’t have to be. A few simple photo taking tips can make the difference between a card you’re proud to show off and card you’d rather keep hidden.

Know your way around the camera – This doesn’t mean you have to be a professional photographer, but you should make sure that you’re familiar with your camera and its quirks. Make sure to take a couple of test shots and make adjustments before you start taking the actual ID photos.

Find good lighting – Flattering lighting can make a huge difference. Either set up an alternate light or consider taking photos near a window that has natural light. Make sure to choose a neutral background. White walls are a great go-to backdrop for ID photos.

Frame your subject – The photo should be framed so that the face and the shoulders of the subject are visible and directly facing the camera. You don’t need to worry about the size of the photo since it can always be cropped to fit the photo field of your ID badge.

Communicate – Develop a rapport with your subject. It will make them more comfortable in front of the camera, and help you get the shot you need if you can effectively express how you want the shot to look in the process.

Snap away! – Hold the camera steady, prepare your subject, and then take the picture. If you follow these simple guidelines, the results should be nothing short of stellar.
