We can see Selfie-ism everywhere. Celebrities do it all over the social media, but do you really know how to take THE perfect selfie? Not Sure?

9 Easy Ways To Take The Perfect Selfie

You won’t miss a good self-portait picture again! So grab your smartphone, because this is going to rock your selfie world!

1. Fill The Frame With Your Face

A selfie is about you, so don’t be afraid to zoom in close!

2. Change Your Angles

Sometimes eliminating a distraction is simply a matter of moving the camera to another position. To make the best use of perspective, work to change your camera-to-subject angle. Often by moving a little to the right or left, or getting higher or lower, you can completely abolish that distracting tree branch or telephone pole.

3. Chin Up

Right before you are about to take the photo, stretch the muscles under your chin and suck in that excess skin – just long enough to snap a photo. Then, bring your head down over your shoulder and look at the camera.

4. Imagine Eating Something Delicious

Create a slight distraction that will capture your face in a naturally beautiful way.

5. Don’t Pose

For a selfie, it’s not about the pose, it’s about you. There’s a reason why you look great in the picture or you look great in real life, because someone has caught the essence of who you are, and a pose is not you.

6. Take a Serie of Shots 

Keep your finger press on the camera icon and take a serie of shots, between five or six pics, you will always have THE perfect one.

If you have other tips, please leave a comment.

7. Add Your Personal Touch

With using filters, either way you are posting on Instagram so you can use their filters or you can use an app. I love Camera + and don’t forget a selfie is about fun!

8. Use the iPhone 6 Timer

If you have an iPhone 6 – use the camera timer which you can set up to 3 or 10 seconds.

9. Use The Light

Every professional photographer will tell you that natural light is always the best! So use it to show the best of your face.
