Take care of the light

Online head modeler

  • Take 3 pictures: front / right / left
    • Choose a facial expression and keep it for all pictures
    • Also keep constant settings for your digital camera (this is important for modeler correpondance)
      • Use same zoom level
      • Use same shooting distance
      • Use same focus
    • Take care of the light:
      • Prefer daylight rather than artificial light
