You want to create a consistent series of photos so that you can compare one to another, after all you want to show off your amazing results! We’ve gone ahead and given you some tips on taking your before and after photos.
FIND A FRIEND
If possible, ask someone to take your photos for you. Taking a selfie will only reduce the quality of the photo. No friend? No problem. Use your phone’s auto-timer.
SELECT A SCENE
Stand in natural light in front of a blank, light-coloured wall. There should be no distracting paintings or clutter behind you. If you decide to use natural lighting, take it near a window during the day and make sure the window is behind the camera, not in front of it. Take your photos the same time to try. If using artificial lighting, make sure the settings are same every time.
TAKE DIFFERENT SHOTS
Ideally, you’ll want to take 5 angles of yourself for each before and after set of photos: full profile right, 45º angle right, full face, 45º angle left, and full profile left. When taking your “after” shots, try matching the angles and the distance between you and the camera. Refer to the before photos when shooting the after photos to ensure the same angles
DOCUMENT YOUR PROGRESS
At a minimum, take photos on day 1 and day 30. But we strongly recommend taking photos on day 15. Once a week is even better.
