Here are some top tips for taking great photos for our team:

1. Think ‘passport’ photo, not ‘Instagram’ selfie
2. Take the photo in front of a plain background, such as a white wall or coloured screen
3. Get a family member to take the pictures, rather than taking selfies
4. Position the camera at the same height as the head. Only angle your face or camera to highlight an area of concern, not to take a more flattering picture
5. Composition – no makeup and hair off your face/ Centre the area of concern by using the grid function on your smartphone
6. Use the HDR setting to ensure there is sufficient detail in the picture
7. Do not use the flash
8. Tap to focus and lock the yellow box to ensure your picture is consistently sharp and not too bright
