Did you know that over 93 million selfies are taken worldwide each day! that is a large number and it’s not just millennials either. It’s a consistent trend now where folks are taking a moment to “Selfie”. I’ve had my own issues with selfies in the past so I don’t take that many. I personally find it odd when I see my reverse reflection. I haven’t mastered where to look on the camera phone and on top of that, the lighting is always a challenge.
OH NO! NOT THE BATHROOM
Most selfies are taken in the bathroom because people figure the lighting is a bit better. That may be fine and well for a single selfie but I urge you to NOT take bathroom selfies OR if you do, look for solid walls that can act as a background. You won’t believe how many selfies are taken with toilets in the background. #Notcool. My tip, look for a solid wall if you simply MUST take one in the bathroom. About all else, no matter the lighting... DO NOT USE A SELFIE FOR LINKED IN PROFILE!!
A BETTER WAY TO GET THAT SELFIE!
My main go to for producing great lighting with selfies either solo or in a group is to use the FlashLight Ap. It can turn bad, low or no light into (SEMI) PERFECT lighting in no time! Simply have a friend hold the light at a 45-degree angle on either your left or right side and that light alone will enhance your selfies from here on out!! Give it a Try!!
