Standard Photos Ear
To best understand the problem of ear deformity and possible surgical solution, Dr. Bermant has evolved Standard Otoplasty Pictures. if you are interested in showing what bothers you about your ears, check how to make these images.
Ears need to be seen in context of the entire e head and in close up to understand the fine details of the problem. The problem is three dimensional and should be evaluated from different directions. A single image is rarely appropriate to assess the ear unless you are talking about a Torn Earlobe Repair. Yet as considering how the ear shape changes with a Congenital Cleft Earlobe requires multiple views to understand the 3 dimensional aspect of this problem / solution.
Pictures of the ears filling the entire frame can be beyond some cameras resulting in an out of focus image. Trying to understand a blur not in focus does not work.
Wide angle lens, camera phones, and computer cameras perform particularly poorly in taking pictures of the ears. The wide angle lens distorts the closest object with items further away looking smaller. If in side view the ear looks way to large compared to the nose, yet in the frontal shot, the nose looks much bigger than the ear, lens distortion is the culprit.
Before posting or sharing, check that the pictures are in focus and really show your concerns.
