PHOTOGRAPH RECOMMENDATIONS

Try to photograph headshots against a contrasting, non-textured wall or background if possible (i.e. if your player is wearing a white uniform…pose him/her against a blue background, etc.)

If we are clipping your player's out of there picture background-we recommend that they have “head gear” on such as caps, helmets, etc. (makes for a cleaner clip around player’s head/hair area)

Please stage action shots when possible to get “the right shot” (try to avoid the “sideline zoom”)

Please watch the sun and shadow areas especially under a cap brim (shoot your pictures with lighting in mind)

When taking your pictures, focus is extremely important.  Maintain a steady hand and proper focal point.  If the photos are “fuzzy” the card will also be “fuzzy”.
