Every day, there are more than a million selfies taken. It’s hard to deny you’ve never snapped a picture of yourself with a smartphone and uploaded it to social media. There are now attachments and gadgets you can buy and attach to you iPhone that will make your selfie-game even stronger than it (most definitely) already is. New lenses and scopes are just some of these add-ons; you can also play with lighting and shutter speed to help make your self-portrait Instagram worthy.
Don’t let others make you feel narcissist for whipping out your phone for a few pictures of yourself, either. If you’re rocking the perfect eyeliner, or happen to be snuggling with the cutest puppy around, there’s no reason not to partake in some snapping.
Once you have the (beautiful) picture of yourself, do what the pros do and edit it. Using apps like VSCO and EyeEm to add a great filter on your selfie can do things like hide a pimple, bring the exposure down, or just make you pop more. You can also use the app FrontBack, which allows you to take a picture with the front and the back camera at the same time; this lets all of you (thousands) of followers see what you’re looking at and your reaction to it. There’s so many possibilities out there, so go get your selfie on!
Now that you've got the right apps and gear, get ready to take your perfect selfie - see this infographic from Adorama for more great tips!
