DO the turtle to eliminate a double chin.. DON’T angle the camera above your head

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!

 

Yippee! A Celebrity Chick Winner

Remember the Celebrity Chick Look a Like contest we ran last month? Well, we finally reached and picked the winner. And she is absolutely wonderful! Laura Pasqualoni. She is the Mariah Carey look-a-like. She submitted more than one photo of herself, and I know you’ll agree the Ludacris and Chingy team at DisturbingthaPeace made a great choice.

Thanks, Laura. Your "DTP Prize Pack" is on its way. And thanks to everyone who entered. What an utterly awesome set of entries. At Photobucket, this was our favorite contest by far.

Check out this remix of just a few of our favorites, and our winner. There were so many great ones — we wish we could have featured every one of you.
