Now to see which pose suits you the best, the better thing that you can do is stand in front of a mirror and try to judge which pose suits you at the best. It is important to know your good side of the face.

Now this point is very important in stage one and that is getting a perfect angle. You might see that your pictures aren’t that good from front than from side.

So it is just, to hit and trial which angle suits you the best. ** Please do not miss the lower angle** It is seen that almost everyone gets good photos from this angle.

Focus on an accessory or make an interesting expression

This is another something that you must take into consideration. Being a female you can try and show of your new hairstyle, your ear ring, your nose ring. Males can show their hairstyle as well or a new tattoo.

It all depends on you, but just make sure to get a focus. And please don’t forget to smile. That might just be the best thing to focus on.

Some tips before you take a selfie

Well here in this segment I will quickly make you go through some of the easiest ways from which you can make your selfie look real great!

Now they are not really ways, they are the ways that can indirectly affect you selfie. Just got through them. There might be a lighting problem or you want to accessorize, or you just simply can’t smile currently. Well here we are, and let’s look at it real quickly.

If you wish to highlight your face, or want a different lighting all together. Stand in front of a window. No, I am really serious. Stand like, 2 or 3 feet maximum away from window (not the door), and you just might feel as if your selfie is looking really good.

One more way to get rid of bad lighting is, take a grey-scale selfie! You might wonder that you can filter it up later, but please take me to my word and do that! You just might find a different look altogether.

Relax! Just Relax! Keep away your phone for a moment. Close your eyes, take a deep breath. Imagine how cute you look and when you are ready, click it up.

What if you can’t smile currently? You are just not able to. Or maybe you don’t like your smile. Do one thing, just squeeze your eyes a little, play with your eyebrow, give a grin from the corner of the lips and there you go.

The last thing- you can always try different angles. Side, Up, Bottom. Just go and click it up.
