Selfies have taken the world by storm and love it or hate it – they seem to be here to stay. So if you’re not already a selfie pro, it’s time to get out your smartphone (or camera if you want to go old school) and master your self-portrait. Take a look at our five simple tips below to learn the subtle art of the selfie.
Good luck and happy selfie-ing!
1. Do a background check
Make sure there’s not a dirty bathroom behind your smiling face! Check out your background before you snap your selfie for an overall perfect pic.
2. Don’t take yourself too seriously
The best selfies show off your fun side. So make some crazy faces, laugh and get a bit silly. We guarantee your pic will get some serious ‘likes’!
3. Edit it
Unless you want in on the #nofilter trend, feel free to use some photo effects! Easily add filters to your pics with apps like Instagram or Pixlr-o-matic.

4. Get together
Turn your selfie into a groupfie and show off your social side! Recruit a few friends to be in your photo to make a fun and memorable group pic.
5. Snap, snap and snap some more
