Whether you are using a digital camera or a smartphone, it always helps when you are using a flash when taking a picture. The photograph will be more sharp and blurring can be prevented. Take the picture as close as possible and make sure that the whole part of the head is being captured.

If you are taking a picture with someone with a hat, headdress and the like, make sure to take the whole part of the headpiece if you intend to include that on the cut-out head, otherwise it’s always better not to put anything on your head.
