Distance from the camera
Take the photo from a distance of about 20 inches from your face. Ideally, the photo should be taken by another person.

Just stand facing a light source such as an exposed window. Don't worry about the background.
About the 40 x 50 mm photo
The requirements for documentary photographs can be different, especially in terms of size and framing. If you want to get a professional photograph that is suitable for various documents, generally the easiest solution is to choose a universal photograph with pre-set size. E.g., for a given format: 40 x 50 mm - meaning 4 on 5 centimetres, you can use the cropping tool available on our page. In a few seconds we would adapt your photograph to the requirements of the office or institution. Thanks to this easy procedure, you will save time and money on searching for a photography studio who will take professional documentary photos in the size you need. Not always at a photography studio there is the possibility to print photos having dimensions of 40 on 50 mm or 4 x 5 cm, so, using cropping tool with option of automatic framing may be the best solution.
