How to take the perfect selfie
It must be neither direct nor artificial. Avoid full sun but also flashes, which bring out the little imperfections of the skin.
Daylight, a little in the shade, early morning or late afternoon when the sun goes down, is the best lighting. How? If you’re inside, face a window through which the light does not enter directly, and take that selfie.
For a selfie, always stretch your arm to the maximum, and zoom slightly to break the wide-angle effect that distorts the face when taken close. Second imperative, do not take the selfie from below, it brings out the neck and jaws.
Wear your best half-smile, and do not look directly at the lens; look at the side, for a softer result.
