Tips For Taking Selfies

Friday, September 12th, 2014



Selfies are very popular as you know. How to take the best one you can. There are four tips you should consider.

1. Stand or sit up straight, and then relax. The idea is you want to have good posture, but not look tense.

2. Lean in toward the camera a little. Not WAY in, or you’ll look weird. But doing it a little gives you some energy.

3. Look away, then turn and smile just in time for the photo. It prevents you from ending up with that “fake” smile look on your face.

4. Look straight into the lens. It’s tempting to look at the screen. But when you do that, it can end up looking like you didn’t quite know where the camera was.
