Avoid The ‘Shot From Above’ For Better Selfies

A popular selfie tip is to raise your camera above your head and look up at it, so it hides your chin and makes you look slimmer. It doesn’t look natural though. Model Tess Holliday shows how to achieve the same effect while looking natural.

Buzzfeed asked Holliday for selfie tips and the “upward angle” was her best lesson. Keep the phone at your face level and bring it closer to your face.

Don’t angle the phone! There’s too much room between your head and the photos, so I would go closer in and tilt your head. I try to find natural lighting. Like, the best place for me is in my open doorway.

Tilting your head to look photogenic is a tried-and-tested method. The video above has all of Holliday’s tips, complete with before-and-after comparisons. Or you can head to the link below for a quick rundown.
