The parameters of the photo must comply with the following values: height – 45 mm; width – 35 mm; the head must be in the middle within the range of 18-25 mm in width and 32-36 in height, and occupy not less than 80% of the entire space.
What clothes it is better to be photographed for a passport is a personal matter for everyone.
Headgear is prohibited when used in the photo. People who are religiously prohibited from going out without a headdress are considered an exception.
One of the most common mistakes is trying to straighten up, but raising your chin too high, which makes your nostrils look like they’re pointed at the camera. It makes the photo look tense and unnatural, and it also makes your chin look big and it adds extra weight. Instead, try slightly slumping your shoulders without tilting your head.
According to modern standards, as adopted in most countries, a wide smile is inappropriate for ID photos, as it can distort facial features. However, a slight smile is quite acceptable, for that you should slightly lift corners of your mouth.
Avoid excessive use of pearlescent textures and glitters (lip gloss, shiny eye shadows, highlighters, etc.), which, if combined with a flash, can cast a glare on your image and even age you visually. A matte finish is ideal. Another important consideration is eyebrows and eyelashes. They should be well-defined, as these parts of the face are “eaten away” when photographed. It is better to choose a matte lipstick, close in color to the natural tone of the lips, avoiding nude and too intense shades.
