Selfies…everybody is doing it. And at first it may have seemed a little ridiculous, all these people taking photos of themselves and posting them online. But did you know that taking selfies is a great way to show off your personality and confidence?

Taking a selfie is an art form in and of itself. A great selfie is more than just point a click…a great selfie takes skill. But no worries, after practicing these few simple techniques, we just know you’ll be a selfie master in no time at all.
Capture Your Best Angle. Instead of taking the picture head-on turn, your head a little to the right or left or maybe hold your camera a little higher. Try different angles to show off your best features.
Show Off Something New. If you decide to take a selfie to show off something new, like…oh we don’t know, maybe your braces, make sure that you frame the photo in a way that highlights the new accessory that has you so excited.
Have Expression. You can never go wrong with smiling! Play around with different smiles…but know that no matter what, a smile is the best expression you can wear.
Focus on Lighting. A great light source is an essential part of taking any photograph. Natural light is best, so start taking those selfies near a window or outdoors.
Don't Use a Mirror. Just stretch your arm out, point the camera toward your face and click. It may take some practice, but eventually you'll know exactly where to position the camera to make sure you capture your whole face.
OK…now you’re ready! Upload those selfies to all of your feeds…Instagram, FaceBook, anywhere and everywhere.
And…as we have said before…Be proud of your selfie!
