What was the last selfie you took? Did you aim the lens down your shirt? Did you take a photo of your lap area? Are you just a Headless Torso? If so, you’re doing it wrong! Skout is a place to meet new people. But it can be challenging to know with whom to start a Chat among all the generic selfies that can fill Buzz. And how do you make yourself stand out in Meet People?
Skoutie, Skout’s resident selfie-obsessed mascot, has four tips to snap your own Selfie #Win.
- Step out of the bathroom. There is NOTHING sexy about your dingy bathroom with toiletries strewn around. And aiming the camera at the mirror makes everything look blurry.
- Use props. You may be the most beautiful person in the world, but a generic selfie just gets lost among the rest. Throw on a cap to represent your team, or drag your cat into the photo. Showcase your personality!
- Shoot from an angle. Holding your camera straight out can cause the dreaded triple chin. To capture a more flattering angle, hold your device above your head, aiming downward.
- Go beyond the selfie. Is it still a selfie if your friends are in the picture? Well, it’s still self-photographed, right? A group shot shows you’re having fun and can also make you seem more approachable.
This holiday, go beyond the standard selfie – trick out your profile with super seasonal selfies!
