- Pay attention to the depth of field - as sharp as possible throughout the depth of the subject,
- Pay attention to the lighting - the brightest constant (or pulse, but without changing the direction of the rays) may be a good option.
- For single camera scanning scenario it is recommended to take a comfortable position in which a person can stay for a long time in a stationary position.
- For single camera scanning scenario during shooting, move the camera along the spiral or circular tracks, providing the necessary overlap and paying special attention to the blind spots (hands, ears, nose, clothing details).
- If a scanned person has lush curly hair, it is recommended to remove them in a tail or put under headdress.
- It is highly recommended to avoid light-absorbing (black), monotonous (without texture/pattern), reflective clothing. Materials with distinguishable and irregular patterns are preferred, e.g. knitting, jeans and etc.
- Remove the glasses if the scanned person wears them.
- Preferably shoot using a fixed lens with focal length from 24 to 50 mm (in 35mm equivalent).
- For multi-camera rigs (studios) try to use minimal number of different camera and lens models.
