Step 36: Take Blink Free Photos
Some people (me) always close their eyes just as the picture is being taken.
The "redeye reduction" light from some cameras guarantees my eyes will be closed during the shot.
Chad Gagnon of Southern New England AAA takes a lot of photos for international drivers licenses.
His trick is to have the person blink a few times before taking the picture.
Or he says "blink" and takes the picture just as the person opens their eyes.
It worked like a charm on me.
