reader-travel-tip2Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Doug R., who builds on our recent post on passport photos by saying:

“Another tip when taking a passport photo: Don’t wear an all-white shirt for the photo. With a white shirt and a white background, you’ll end up looking like a floating head for your photo. While floating heads are allowed to travel, it certainly makes for a goofy-looking picture. Cheers!”

Thanks, Doug!

    You are absolutely right. The white shirt is not suitable with white background while taking passport photos.
