Mastering Passport Photography: A Journey into DIY Techniques

Passport photos are an essential requirement for various official documents and international travel. While many people choose to have their photos taken professionally, there's a certain allure to doing it yourself, especially for those who are passionate about photography. In this video, professional photographer Omar Gonzalez takes us through his process of capturing a passport photo, offering valuable insights into lighting, camera setup, and more.

Camera Settings and Test Shots:

Omar sets his camera to an aperture of f/8, an ISO of 200, and a sync speed of 1/250s. These settings allow him to eliminate ambient light and achieve a clean image. Taking a test shot confirms the absence of any unwanted light sources, guaranteeing a pure black background.
