You can take the photos anywhere, even from the comfort and privacy of your own home. It is preferable to take all the photos in natural daylight. If there is insufficient natural light, you can go to a well-lit area in your home. This can include the bathroom if the lighting there is strong. The more light you have during photography, the sharper the image will be. Initially, it is recommended to take at least 1-2 photos from a distance (approximately 1 meter) to show the location of the condition on your body. For the rest of the photos, take close-up shots from four different angles. During each photography session, keep your phone steady in one place to allow the autofocus to work properly. If you are unable to see the screen while taking the photo, it is better to use a mirror. For example, in the application, you can take a photo of your own face by standing in front of a mirror and capturing the reflection.
