Summary
We probably don't need a day to encourage people to take pictures of themselves, but there is no denying the cultural impact of selfies.

Tips for a super selfie

  • Hold your phone slightly above you, or off to the side. Adjusting where you hold your camera emphasizes different angles of your face. If you hold it below your face, or directly in front, there's a chance you're catching unflattering angles.
  • Find your best lighting. Natural lighting is always the way to go when taking a photo, but there are artificial ways to produce this too, like with a selfie-inspired phone case. Blogger Michelle Phan explained this concept to Allure. "Having nice, natural sunlight streaming in will make for a good selfie. Another thing I do is take a piece of white paper and hold it underneath my chin, which creates a natural bounce of light, illuminates the face, and also reduces the double-chin effect."
  • Be yourself. The idea of taking a selfie is to document who you are. Posting things about yourself on the internet can be intimidating. We've all fallen into the Instagram trap of influencers, and comparing ourselves to the people we see online. But remember you're taking a selfie to show off YOU, not to become a copy of the others who grace your feed. Embrace your individuality for a selfie that looks and feels like you.

Did you know?

You can let someone else take your Selfie. This kind of photography is called Posies among the millennials, the picture is usually taken by someone else, and the person in front of the camera just has to pose.
