8 Tips For Taking a Great ID Badge Photo for Employees

  1. Get Proper Lighting

    Arrange flattering lighting while capturing your image. Good lighting, not too bright or too dark will give you a healthy complex and no shadows in the pictures. Avoid office fluorescent lights that contribute to discolored pictures.
  2. Use Tripod

    Use some help as a tripod, the phone’s timer function, or ask a team member to take your pic. Pick any place. You can adjust the scene and erase the busy background using our site.
  3. Wear Right Outfit

    Choose a shirt or casual top for a work badge photo unless you need to follow a dress code. Stick to darker colors, dark blues, black, or navy. Avoid whites, nudes, or naturals, as they might blend with a neutral background.
  4. Relax

    To avoid tense face and body posture, use some tips and tricks for relaxed expression. Take a picture when you're feeling your best, be yourself, and think of a salary raise. It might be a good way to get a good vibe on.
  5. Smile with Eyes

    Here is a tip. If you want a likable badge picture, practice your smile with your eyes in front of a mirror. Play around a bit, and your employee-fellows and yourself will love the result.
  6. Fix Your Hair 

    Neatly styled hair is your best choice. Go for your everyday look. Keep your face open to be easily recognized by security members if need to.
  7. Leave Room in the Pic 

    Make sure you leave some ample space above your head and at the sides. We'll crop it to the perfect size. Leave your face and shoulders framed.
  8. Try Heights & Angles 

    It's good practice to try out camera heights for great images. Agree to no mugshot photo. With PhotoBooth Online, you'll have no problem changing angles slightly downward or upward to capture the real you.
