Kim, the godmother of selfies

We all have that moment.

You’ve taken what seems like a thousand selfies and yet, you cannot find the perfect one for Instagram. You are frustrated but you decide to give it one last try. After this final try, you still get the same result and start thinking about giving up.

Don’t throw in the towel just yet. Let us help your selfie game with these seven simple steps.

1. Less Is More

One of the common mistakes many people make when taking selfies is including distracting backgrounds. Its a rookie mistake but the next time you take a selfie, be sure to give the picture a central focus.

2. Selfie cameras are not always your friend

Believe it or not, you are more likely to get a brilliant selfie by using your rear-facing camera. Why? Main cameras usually have better lenses than their front-facing counter parts.

The picture above was actually taken using a rear-facing camera. It might not be the most convenient tip to pull off, but it will all be worth it at the end.

3. Must they know it’s a selfie?

Be experimental with your vanity. Try poses and gestures that may trick people into believing that you are not the one taking the photograph. A creative mind is the major key to taking a brilliant selfie.

4. Don’t stand in the way of the light

Lighting is everything! The position of the light can make or mar a selfie. Keep moving your camera until you find that perfect streak of light.

It does not matter where the light comes from, outside or from an artificial source, as long as it hits you in the right way.

5. Don’t look at your screen

Another rookie mistake non-slay mamas make when taking selfies is looking at the screen. A good selfie is about making perfect eye contact and you can’t do that if you are not looking at the lens of the camera. If you can see yourself while taking the selfie, then you should know you are doing something wrong.

6. We really really don’t want to see your arms

This selfie cliche is no longer welcomed. Find something cool to do with your hand by placing your camera in a position that will not allow us to see it.

7. Level up

This may sound so elementary but you’d be surprised to find out the sheer number of selfies that don’t factor in the height of the selfie taker. Be sure that your camera is placed in a way that does not cut out your million dollar face.
