How to take Proper Carbon Repair Photos

In the carbon repair side of our business, we see a lot of photos. Unfortunately, despite the advances in camera technology even smartphone technology, we still receive fuzzy and out of focus photos. If you’re not able to snap additional photos, it starts to add extra days to your repair time. The following photos should provide examples of what are perfect photos to send our way:
