It’s National Selfie Day!

How many “takes” do you take before you actually post a selfie?

Tips for taking a better selfie:

  • Light is king – avoid shadows
  • Smile like you mean it
  • It’s all in the angle – hold the phone so that the bottom of it is level with your eyes.  Furthermore, you probably shouldn’t stare directly into the camera. Most people don’t look their best straight-on. Turn to the side a little bit but not to the point where it’s a full-on profile.
  • Instead of a selfie that an”us-ie” pictures with friends and family make for the best memories!
  • Take more than 47 shots LOL the more you take the better odds you will like one
  • Don’t overthink it or be overcritical! Enjoy!
