DMV Photo Suggestions?

I HATE taking new pictures at the DMV- but my license expires on Sunday and they are forcing me to come in :( Any suggestions for taking a "decent" photo- the last one had me looking like a 400lb mammoth woman- I mean, I'm a big girl, but not as big as that picture made me look, lol! And I'm 5'11" - so maybe the upward pointing camera isn't quite the best angle, lol!

Re: DMV Photo Suggestions?

  • When I took photos last the photographer told me to stick out my chin like a turkey and than kind of point it down. And I really did see a difference in the pics. My double chin was definitely not as prominent. Or my pointy nose.

    If makes you feel any better I can't wait till I get to renew my license. My picture is so bad. I hadn't expected to take a pic when I went it so I was not prepared. I was 3 weeks away from my due date, it was 100deg and I had just woke up. It's sooooo bad. usually DH is the one to be "oh no that pic looks great" and "you look good, you're just too biased" But when I showed him my pic his first response was "oh no I'm sorry babe, maybe you can retake it?" than I knew it was really bad.

  • My first picture was when I was 16, the 2nd one I took was last year, the day after halloween, when I changed my name at the DMV. I didnt know they were going to take my picture.

    I was a pink lady last year (from Grease)  and my hair was still teased up pretty high : /

  • Oh no! Lol- that is exactly what you want to hear when you're pregnant right, lol!

     Yeah, in mine I'm all red-faced (I'm not THAT white), and I just look huge. I mean- I'm a big person, don't get me wrong - but my Avatar pic is about how big I am... the pic I took was horrifying- I looked like one of those people you see getting carried out by crane from their house, lol! Ok, not that  bad, but I don't show anybody that pic unless it is mandatory, lol! :)

    GREAT tips- I was hoping for something like that- wish me luck, I'm on my way! :)

  • When I had to take a new photo two years ago they told me to look straight ahead and not smile- WTF?? I smiled anyway and the picture came out halfway decent.
  • Tilt your head down slightly.

    Also, wear more makeup than you usually do. Mylast two DMV pics have actually been decent, but I had to really cake on the lipstick and eye makeup. It looked overdone in real life, but looked great and natural in the picture.

  • I had to take a new one when I changed my name. I was probably the only one in line brushing my hair and checking my face. I just looked straight ahead and smiled and it turned out decent enough for a drivers license photo. Definitely smile and I agree with pp that said to tilt your head down slightly. I think that's a tip the celebs do.

  • Thanks for the tips! I have returned... hopefully it turned out ok, I'll update in a couple of weeks, lol!
