How to take the Perfect Selfie

Taking selfies is great fun, but there are a few very simple rules you can follow which will make your photos look more professional, because everyone wants to do this right?

 

You'll be the Queen of the Castle (sorry, we meant Instagram... obviously) if you follow this guide, so probably best not to share this one. Yes, we are encouraging 100% selfish behaviour and keeping this info strictly to youself. Being selfish is good, sometimes.

How to take the Perfect Selfie

1. Lighting - The No.1 Factor in Capturing High Quality Images

Bright lighting will enhance the quality of your photographs to Celeb Paparazzi status, those really grainy images you see, are always down to poorly lit settings.

 

Take your pictures during the middle of the day in as bright natural daylight as possible.

Fact 1. The sun provides natural light.

Fact 2. Windows let this light into your room.

Prescription: Position mirror (or stand) closer to a window.

 

The lights in your house are the devil, they produce the kind of light that makes your camera want to throw up! Use bright natural light... got it?

2. Backgrounds Matter - Your Opportunity to get Creative

The background of your photo has a massive impact on how hot you will look and is a key aspect in capturing an attractive image.

 

Check out the photo below.

Ornate Mirror = beautiful / classical.

Drapes = gives an air of Princess feel to the photo.

Tidy / Simple Background = this will help make you stand out and be the star of the show!

 

Selfies that feature toilet brushes are just not cool, for the love of God please don't be one of those skanky bogens that do this.

3. Stop the Shakes - A Surefire way to Blur your Images

The next step in capturing an awesome selfie is pretty simple (even for super dumb people) but also important to remember, keep your camera dead still when hitting the shoot button.

 

How can I remain so still when taking my selfie, I need examples here?!?

- Eat less cake! This should stop you from wobbling around so much.

- Even the most hardcore Whatsapp junkies need a break, do exactly that... all those messages vibrating your phone are a sure fire way to mess up your selfies.

- Crank up the heating (mom pays the bill so why should you care), being cold makes you shiver / shake!

 

Unless you've got Parkinson's there is absolutely no excuse for blurry images... ever!

4. Chill the Hell Out! Smile, Pout, Have Some Fun!

This is the most underated factor in photography bar-none. It's impossible to get good results if you are not 100% relaxed. We are talking "I just took 5 Valium and now I'm taking a selfie" relaxed.

 

Stop getting frustrated if your photos are not coming out how you want, try a new outfit or a new location, or go get high with some friends - just remember your photos will capture whatever mood you are in.

 

Practise makes perfect, it's a cliché, and that makes it pretty whack by default, but it's also A+ advice when it comes to taking selfies that'll receive 100+ Likes.

5. Take 20... then choose 1... because that's what Celebrities do!

We don't often encourage this but now is your chance to be a Sheep and follow the crowd! You can guarantee that any photo you see of a celeb or supermodel in a magazine has been chosen by the editor as the best one out of literally hundreds the photographer took.

 

Amount of selfies you take before getting one that's perfect!

 

01 - 10 : You are seriously HOT! You should definitely try out some modelling agencies!

10 - 20 : You have an above average attractiveness, your friends are jealous of you.

20 - 30 : Believe it or not this is the average no. of selfies girls take to get one they like.

30 - 40 : Unfortunately you are not that hot, consider plastic surgery as a serious option.

50 - 99 : Surgery won't help, try to find an adult site you can resonate with.
