How To Take ID Photo?
In my experience taking pictures ID, to school students and teachers the common words that you can hear is, “yay, I’m ugly here”! and then laughing. Seriously, the photographer should give attention to this matter, the reaction to your customers could result not return to you next time. In this case we want to make guidelines for this.
Here is the following :
- Listen to customers what they want in the picture.
- Guide your customers the process of taking pictures.
- Ask a few questions to customers.
- Let the customer take time to check in mirror.
- A comfortable chair with no back support or have low back support.
- Tell customer to relax, when it is ready to take a picture
- Count loader 1, 2, 3 then clicks.
- Show the result of picture to customer.
- Repeat the shot, if not good.
Listen to customers what they want in the picture.
Some customer are quite, so better you make first approach with welcoming, asking questions.
Guide your customers the process of taking pictures.
Tell the customer the possible time to finish the process of picture, find a way to empress your customers.
Ask a few questions to customers.
You can start asking question like for example, where you can use the ID photo? Are you applying a job?
Let the customer take time to check in the mirror.
The are only two types of persons when they ready to take a picture.
- Not shy
Shy person is normal, but limited of action, and words. Sensitive personality. Not in there personal home. The shy person has a hidden nervous, so remain quiet. They face in the mirror for a second or even they not look in the mirror, to arrange the hair. The photographer should be manage customers attitude like this.
Not shy person is also normal, and fun. They will talk as they can in no time, until finish the picture was taken. They are more talkative than you have prepared. This process is easy for not shy person, for coming to you asking for take a picture.
A comfortable chair with no back support or have low back support.
Prepare a chair for customers and comfortable to sit in. Soft chairs can be better, but ask them to choose what chair they want. Tell them sit and relax. Tell customers to look this object, so they can actually not directly seeing to lens or flash.
Tell customer to relax, when it is ready to take a picture.
Observe your customers post for a second, look over all. Notice that some person trying to freeze herself in advance and like chilling as you observe. Tell to the customer to relax. Go with her near the chair, and arrange the pose, move her head or hair in good-looking. To be her feeling comfortable.
Count loader 1, 2, 3 then clicks.
It is important that while she waits, for minutes. You now count in voice to hear, so she can prepare, for what she looks as you are counting… and that she feels better.
Show the result of picture to customer.
Show her the finish picture. It is comfortable for her if she can see right away her pictures. Ask her if it good for her or need any changes she want. You know that in this way the customer feel better. In the future she will come back to you.
Repeat the shot, if not good.
Remember that customer will return to you if you are a good photographer. There are many chances to refer you, from to her friends, may be wedding, birthdays and family photo. So, at first make her comfortable that make her easier to them to get to know you better.
They will find you and trust you to take the job. This habit become passive earning money in the future.
