    Capture a good angle: Experiment with different angles to show off your features, if you turn your head a few degrees to the right or left, your features will appear less flat.
    • Know your “good side” and take the photo from that side of your face. It’s the side of your face that looks the most balanced and symmetrical

    Show off something new: You may want to show off a new item you just got and tell your friends about it, it makes selfies quite catchy and people are attracted to them.
    • A new hairstyle, a new accessory, anything new worth the show off.

    Pay attention to good Lighting: Having a solid light source is an essential part of taking any kind of photograph, and selfies are no different. If you try to take a selfie in a dimly-lit room or one with harsh fluorescent lighting, it won’t turn out the way you want it to.
    • Keep the sun or other light source in front of you.
    • Natural light renders colours more faithfully than artificial light.
    • Don’t use flash if you can help it. It’ll create a forehead glare, distort your appearance and possibly give your selfie the redeye effect.

    1. Try a natural look: Taking a snapshot of yourself with minimal or no makeup can give the illusion that you’re giving your social media followers a glimpse at the “real you.” This can be both interesting and sexy.

    2. Consider the background of your picture: The best selfies have more than just a face. There’s something interesting to look at in the background, too. Whether you take your selfie inside or outdoors, check around you first to see what’s going on in the background.

    3. Experiment with filters (use the right app): Most people who take selfies also happen to have an app on their phones that can add interesting dimension through the use of colour and light filters. Not every filter is right for every selfie, so play around with different options before settling on the best one.

    4. Be yourself: “Flash a real smile and no image will look bad,” says Lake. Or if you’re going for something slightly more serious, “try smiling with your eyes”.

    5. Don’t over sweat it: Arm yourself with this knowledge, and then just relax. A trying-too-hard selfie is never going to be a good one. “The thing about selfies is that you don’t want them to be too serious.

    6. Accessory: Throw on a hat, don a wig,a neck piece or wear sunglasses.


  2. I think that the most important thing if you want to have good photos is simply to have strong self confidence and always to be natural. Then all will be very good and you will be looking greta. YOu don't need to imitate something else, it is not good, you just will be looking funnily.

  3. it is important to have good dressing and quite good make up, but don't need to overplay. And also I think it is relevant how is written here to have natural look.. And furthermore when you take selfie photo you have to know that you are really beautiful woman...

  4. I think that if you want to have really good photo, you need that other people should take your photo, not you by yourself, because to do perfect photo is needed knowledge of photography, it is needed to have good camera, also when you take photo is important right illumination. I have many photos but all the most beautiful photos where taken by other people...

  5. I don't like selfies at all.. I think that this fashio is suitable for persons who want to get attention.

  6. I like to make a selfie of me and my friends. It's like a funny game:) I like it and thanks for tips:)!

  7. I don't like selfies too... I like photos when they are natural, and people look without any efforts to look attractive.

  8. Chera, I think you are too much critic, when you make photo of your self, you have more time to prepare for looking good, you can use your fantasy and it is great. I have many photos of my self and these photos are amazing.

    yea, I think now selfies are very popular all over the wold, so if you like it it is not bad, I also do ma selfies and I am satisfied with the rezults. and its realy tru about brightness and filter when you do pictures, they are realy importnt

  10. i also love do selfies, it's good desicion if you wanna spend your funny and to know more yourself. It's true! For example, when I'm alone and take photo of myself, I always look better, more self confident and without stresfull, unnatural smile. So for me it's a great activity to see which side of my body looks better, which position for me perfectly fits, which type, form and colour of clothes makes me more attractive person. It's like a easy, funny game with yourself:)

  11. yea, furthermore it is very important to choose suitable clothes and have good make up, cos these things can change us very much
