How to take the perfect selfie
Before you shoot, check your
surroundings! Don’t take selfies in
inappropriate or dangerous places.
Tip: Pick a side, find your light and your best angles.
When picking a side, sometimes one side of your face will
photograph better than the other. Experiment with both
sides.
When finding your light, turn either directly into the sun, or away
from it completely. Snap a selfie at sunrise or sunset for the most
flattering light.

When posing for a selfie, angle the camera from above to slim down
your features and banish shadows. Tilt your head with your phone. It’s
important to make sure you don’t lose your neck in selfies, so extend
and tilt your head. This will make the shot look long and elegant.
