Taking photos, basic tips
Daylight. Cameras are optimised for full daylight use and so if this is possible this is recommended.
Backgrounds. If backgrounds are of a plain colour eg all white or black, this will help.
A general view accompanied with a close up. Please take a general view of the area eg the arm before taking close up images of the arm; this will help orientate the views.
Getting close upimages in focus. There are apps available online to help with close up photography. The trick is to get these in focus
Higher resolutions are preferred to aid quality of reproduction
If possible a ruler could be place near the lesion to help illustrate magnification.
