Going out on a limb here but if you're REALLY intent on doing this.
1. Find a repeatable spot for your photos. A wall/door/mirror/whatever. Try to make the backgound neutral so as not to create a distration (ie: Cowboys wallpaper). Does your camera have a timer? Use it so you don't have to depend on others.
2. Try to keep the illumination the same each time. If you take take daylight pics, make them ALL daylight pics, if possible.
3. Take the pics once a week to allow time for progress to show.
4. Go thru your 50 pics and choose maybe five poses and stick to them. Front, back, arms, legs, again...whatever. Use the same pose every week for comparison. Better yet, go buy a "Muscle and Fitnesss" magazine and try some of the more tame poses.
5. Pick one outfit of clothing. Set it aside and use it only for the pics. Make a good choice now because if you start with baggy sweats, and you are really happy with how your legs turn out, for example, you won't have a base for comparison.
6. Avoid the urge to heighten your definition with makeup, Sharpie markers, etc. That's cheating.
Good luck. It takes commitment to stick with it once you start and don't get disappointed if you "hit a wall". You just have to work through it.
BTW...Tennis is not the type of cardio you need. Treadmill or elliptical work with a sustained, non stop program for 30 to 45 minutes will serve you better (no pun intened). Make sure there's a TV nearby because this part is Booooring.
