Your home for everything artistic

Rocking Selfies

While the majority of those who take and upload “selfies” are not really doing so with any artistic intent, or are not having much success in doing so, it is not only possible to create artsy selfies but some have even made it a craft of sorts.

So, how can you rock the selfie? Here are some tips and samples.

1. Make sure the background isn’t a distraction. A solid color wall or distant nature setting would be much better than a messy bedroom.

Too busy:

No distraction issues:

2. Have as much light as possibly without washing out the shot. An overexposed pic or one that is so dark you can’t see anything is worse than no pic at all.

Overexposed:

Better:

3. Use a flattering angle. This is usually good for girls when they shoot the shot from somewhere overhead. Some positions however, can make you look wider or older.

Nice position setup:
