  • Avoid using flash as much as you can. It induces some unnecessary reflections into the image.

Avoid Mirrors – Try to click Selfie without using a mirror. Avoid it as much as you can. Mirrors do not reflect a perfect image and have a tendency to distort light. Taking a picture using mirror will display your mobile phone/camera. It will also display a glare in the image. If the mirror is not perfectly clean, your image will have all kind of cuts and glares.

If you want to take a full-length Selfie, try to stretch your arms or use a Selfie stick. Try to tilt the camera in such a way that displays your full-length photo.

  • The background makes an ambiance of your photo.

Use Good Filters – With so many different processing applications, phones are filled with a huge number of effects and filters. Try to use adequate and fewer filters for your photo.

  • Use just one effect and decide which one is correct for your situation.
  • Post clicking, use fewer filters as you can. Using more filters will have an inverse effect on the quality of your image.
  • Use simple filters that make less use of colors like monochrome, sepia etc. they enhance your image quality.


Find a Good Angle – Using the front camera of your smartphone is a good choice. There are so many smartphones that provide a very good front camera these days.

  • Tilt your camera in different directions and try to perceive some of the best angles with present light.
  • Try to rotate your face in different angles and find some of the best features of your face.
  • Use a Selfie stick and have a look at various sides of the scene. It will give you a very good idea where you can click best pictures of yourself.


Focus on Best Features – The camera should always have specifics to focus on. With everything else, there should be a point to display in the Selfie.

  • If you want to display some new features just like new piercings, haircuts etc. try focusing on one specific feature.
  • If you have accessories you have just got like new shades, jewels etc. make it the shining point for your Selfie.
  • Try to find the best spots or part of your face, and the angle where it looks the best.

Blossom the Photo with a Smile – A smile will always add more beauty to your image. So whenever you take pictures, show your cheerful expression.

  • Whatever the point of focus is, your smile will always help the image become attractive.

With so much of space in smartphones we are prone to click as many photos as we want. But having good and clear photos are as important as clicking a large number of photos.


Finally, I would suggest you to try making Selfie videos with friends sometimes, it is quite a good experience. It also gives you a great opportunity to observe the angles and different scenarios of light. There are also issues of securing the photos, just like clicking them. The number of images clicked and videos recorded need to be stored carefully.
