FFS Evaluation: Photo tips

January 18, 2014

To receive an evaluation by email or correspondence, we will need the following:

  1. A precise description of what you would like to change with FFS.
  2. Three photos: frontal, profile and 3/4 lateral (or 45 º), such as in the example at the bottom of the page.
  3. Your full name and surname, country of residence, and contact telephone or Skype/Google+ username.

Keep in mind the tips below:

  • Don’t hold the camera yourself and try not to use mirrors.
  • Keep the camera at least 6 feet (2 metres) away from your face.
  • Camera Angle: The camera should be at eye level. Try to keep your head and gaze horizontal
  • The pictures should be well lit and in focus, but not in direct sunlight.
  • Keep a blank expression, without a smile.
  • It is best to turn your whole body to get the different angles rather than just turning your head.
  • Keep your hair tied back so your cheeks and forehead are revealed
  • Picture Size. Up to 1 MB is sufficient
  • Try to have a blank, neutral color background
  • Don’t wear glasses.
  • Make-up: It’s fine to wear light make-up, but avoid heavy eyeliner or eye-shadows.

Tips for ffs free consultations

  1. No sostenga la cámara usted mismo y trate de no usar los espejos.
  2. Mantenga la cámara por lo menos 6 pies (2 metros) de distancia de su cara.
  3. Ángulo de cámara: la cámara debe estar a nivel de los ojos. Trate de mantener la cabeza y la mirada horizontal.
  4. Las imágenes deben estar bien iluminadas y en foco, pero no en la luz solar directa.
  5. Mantenga una expresión relajada, sin una sonrisa.
  6. Lo mejor es dar vuelta a su cuerpo entero para obtener los diferentes ángulos en lugar de girar la cabeza sola.
  7. Mantenga el cabello recogido hacia atrás para que sus mejillas y la frente se revelan.
  8. Tamaño de la imagen. Hasta 1 MB es suficiente.
  9. Trate de tener un fondo claro, con color neutro.
  10. No use anteojos.
  11. Maquillaje: Está bien usar un poco de base de maquillaje, pero evite el delineador de ojos muy marcadas y las sombras.
