# 1 Natural light

​Natural light is probably the best source of illumination you can wish for. ​Not only does it make you look naturally good, but it also does not affect the color of the light making the picture look too cold/warm. ​Diffused light is better than harsh direct light which leaves ugly shadows.

Daylight reveals rich colors,, Artificial light drains it.

# 2 Background

​It’s funny how often backgrounds ruin the perfect selfie. ​No selfie is worth embarrassing yourself. ​Take an additional second before you click and a few more seconds before you post to ensure that all is well.

Ready. Look. Click

# 3 Smile, have fun

​Light up your selfies with your dazzling smile. ​People’s brains are hardwired to smiling happy people. ​Looking into the camera helps. After all the eyes are the windows to the soul.

Smiles = Likes

​No longer are we working with film. Photos can be deleted as as easily as they can be created. ​Clicking selfies should be inversely proportional to picking selfies. That’s when you know you have the perfect one.

# 5 Angles

​Not all faces are the same, so not all angles work for everyone. ​Understanding what works best for you for example you may have a one-sided dimple or some facial feature you want to flaunt. ​That being said try to keep the camera above eye-level. ​Remember confidence is the sexiest expression you can wear.

Chin up
