Top Tip: Take you picture outside in daylight without using flash. Ideally, it should be a cloudy bright day (no shadows cast by the sun). Select a background that suits your requirements - a sheet hanging on a washing line will do the trick - and take the picture.
Do not try and crop the picture in the camera, it won't work - this can be done afterwards on a computer. Click to see a guide on taking your own Baby Passport Photo at home.
If you have followed our advice and not used flash and taken the picture outside you should end up with a photo completely FREE OFSHADOWS.
