How to get the best shot

But don’t just point your camera at your face and take a shot without planning. There is an art to taking attention-grabbing selfies that your friends will love seeing in their feeds.


Let your feet do the talking

Why not take a photo of your feet, especially if you want to draw attention to your new pair of shoes? Or shoot a photo of the new bracelet on your wrist or your newly-polished fingernails. In your next selfie, challenge yourself to creatively capture you by striking a flattering pose and experimenting with different ways to hold your camera.



Crop it tightly

Zoom in on your phone just slightly (zooming in too much will reduce detail in the shot) and hold the camera far away from your face.  Now your features look proportionate and you decluttered the background.



Two handed selfie

When taking a selfie, you generally have two options: hold the camera with one hand or two hands. While using two hands is easier because you can hold the camera with one hand and push the shutter release button with the other, you have to be more careful not to cover up the lens.

If you use both hands and pull the camera away from your body, your arms can act as a frame.

A selfie of the selfie

One really fun idea that not many people do is to have someone take a picture of you taking a selfie.  It’s a really flattering look and is really interesting.
