  1. Please print the attached PDF [PDF – 93 KB] “It’s Time!”
  2. Using a marker or Sharpie write in your own “It’s Time” World TB Day message.
  3. Find a friend to help take your photo using a digital camera or smart phone.

Photo Tips:

  • Frame the photo horizontally or vertically.
  • Consider lighting. If possible, take advantage of “golden hours” of early morning or late afternoon. Position the subject with the light source behind or to your side. If the photo is taken indoors, a window can provide nice natural lighting.
  • Consider what’s going on in the background of the photo.
