Mug shot review

I loved your mug shots!

Here’s a review of what we learned:

  • Get up close. Fill the frame.
  • Use natural light, if possible.
  • Shoot your subject against a neutral background.
  • Have your subject stand away from the wall to avoid shadows.
  • If your subject is wearing eyeglasses, move the subject or yourself to keep light from reflecting off the glasses and creating glare or reflections.
  • Don’t be satisfied with just one photo. Shoot several so you have a variety to choose from.
  • Get information for the photo caption: full name (correctly spelled), age, city they are from, any other relevant information, such as college major, profession, etc.
