They pop up daily on our Instagram feed. We’ve seen countless “Selfie Sunday” hashtags. They are the norm for Facebook profile pictures and the word “selfie” has even been added to the dictionary. But having the latest smartphone and complementing filters is not enough. Study these simple tips and you will be on your way to taking the perfect selfie.
DO the turtle to eliminate a double chin.. DON’T angle the camera above your head
DO relax and be confident, DON’T over pose
DO imagine your happy place for a natural smize, DON’T make a ‘Duck Face’
DO enhance your photo with an appropriate filter, DON’T over-edit
A few other things to remember:
Choose your background wisely. Make sure there are no photobombers, incriminating props or distracting scenery.
Everything in moderation. Taking too many selfies is narcissistic. Limit to one a week maximum.
Keep it classy. Don’t shoot a selfie that you wouldn’t be comfortable showing to your grandmother or your boss.
You’re set…Now snap away to shameless selfie heaven!
