There’s a running joke here at the radio station that I take a lot of selfies.

It’s true…I take them often. So, why not take what I know to be true about capturing a selfie worthy of a social media post.

Every day I’ll give you some tips on how to land that perfect photo of your mug.

Today’s tip: lighting.

You can have a killer outfit, amazing hair day, or maybe you spent a little extra time in the gym lately and you want to show off the progress, but if your lighting is off, it can ruin your photo.

This rings true for any photo by the way, not just a selfie.

You want a good lighting source. Natural is always best and I find that it looks best when it’s coming in from a slight angle around dawn or dusk. Not straight on, not from behind.

I’m no photography expert, but I do know what I like in my photo. So, hopefully it helps you too!
