Body

  • Please take Photos in front of a plain background. For example, use a plain-colored wall or plain-colored sheet (white or blue is preferable) hung on a wall.
  • Photos should be taken from just below your chin to your feet. The whole torso area should be visible with no undergarments obscuring the area to be examined. Hands and arms should not be raised above your head as this lifts the abdomen to an unnatural position. Do not “suck in” the abdomen as this also creates an unnatural position. Inhale and exhale out to completely relax your abdomen. Keep arms up and out to the sides for front and back views. Keep arms out to the front of your shoulders for the side views. Be as relaxed as possible for the best photo outcome.
  • Keep the camera angle straight forward. Do not angle down or up as this will also create an unnatural position/view of the abdomen area.
  • You will need to take your photos without any garments on; for example, no shirts covering the abdomen area, no bras, or underwear. Please use a small towel or maxi pad turned backwards to cover your front vaginal area. Dr. Janho needs to be able to evaluate your body without clothing disrupting his view.
  • A total of 4 images/views are needed: 1 front view shot, 2 side views, and 1 full back shot. Please make sure you have no clothes on, not even under garments.

Hair

  • Please take Photos in front of a plain background. For example, use a plain-colored wall or plain-colored sheet (white or blue is preferable) hung on a wall.
  • Photos should be taken from top/crown of head to just below the neck with collar bones visible. Facial features should be relaxed. No smiling or frowning, just a relaxed natural position. Keep jaw line in a relaxed natural position; do not try to push jaw out or “pose” as this will only obscure your natural jaw line. Be as relaxed as possible for the best photo outcome.
  • Keep the camera angle straight forward. Do not angle down or up as this will also create an unnatural position/view of the facial features.
  • A total of 4 images/views are needed: 1 front shot, 2 side views and 1 view with head tilted slightly downward of the facial features.
