Make sure that you flash your signature pose in your selfie.  Try to avoid cliché poses such as the duck face or flexing in the mirror and get creative.  The sillier the better!

Filters make a terrible photographer seem like Annie Leibovitz.  Fix your lighting and color imperfections with a great filter. Plus, filters can evoke the personality that you want to shine through. Want to look vintage? Add in a Nashville filter. Want to look tan? Try XXPro.

Use a Selfie Stick

A lot of people will look at you, and their look will be of pure jealousy. They know that you are going to get the most perfect selfie using this ingenius device.


Have Fun with It!


See how many people you can fit in a frame, where you can take the photo, or how weird of a face you can make.  It doesn't matter! It is YOUR selfie, have fun and own it!
