CONSISTENT ANGLE AND ORIENTATION
- Choose the same spot in a well-lit room to take the photos each week.
- Take them from the same angle and orientation each time, so our staff can quickly “stack” them to make your animated progress image.
- PRO TIP: Use two fingers to pinch and zoom an iPhone camera and hold the phone about 8 inches from the skin. This yields better results than holding the camera closer and not zooming.
