How do I set up my camera to take my own photos?

If taking your own photos, set your digital camera to the best possible setting.

  • Use a tripod to stabilize your camera.
  • Turn on all lights.
  • If possible point your flash toward the ceiling to avoid flash back from mirrors, windows, etc.
  • We suggest you resize the photos to a minimum of 800×600 pixels to a maximum of 1600×1200 pixels.
