    Default Passport Photo

    Hi,
    After many years saving we can finally go OS to visit DH's rello's. BUT I need to get the kids pasport photo's done.

    1) Any tips for getting it done quickly?

    2) Any recommendations on where to go?

    We are NOR but happy to travel if it means getting someone friendly and in and out quickly without too much hassle. DD1 took forever when I did hers but with the younger two (3yo & 1yo)I am hoping this time they will agree.

    Thanks

    Hi - you can take the kids photos at home yourself, then pop into a photoshop with your ISB stick/memory card & they will ensure it's the appropriate size/brightness etc (have just been through this myself). It costs the same as having it done on site (about $17) but much less stressful than trying to get the right shot in the store.
    Just make sure the following:
    -child is straight on (so you can see both ears & there's no shadows)
    -eyes are open
    -white (or close to) plain background

    hope this helps x

    Thanks. I tried that last time using motor drive function (takes 20 photos at once) hoping to catch her but just ended up with 1000 photos that didn't pass. I will try again and see what happens.
