Once upon a time we regularly published YouTube videos. One of our all-time highest viewed videos was one with tips for taking a full-length selfie.
Look, we know that mirror selfies are all the rage, but sometimes you just want your outfit to be the hero of the photo! Use these tips below to get the perfect full-length selfie without a mirror!
We’re excited to finally share this video here on the blog! It’s one of our most searched and viewed videos on YouTube and we wish we could take all the credit, but we can’t.
Our friend Wendy shared her secrets on how to take the perfect full-length selfie. We were straight up blown away at how simple it is to do. No more crazy mirror photos when you’re sharing your OOTD.
Tips for Taking a Full Length Selfie without a Mirror
- Flip your camera upside down. Don’t worry. Your photo will be right side up (and if it isn’t it’s easy to rotate it.
- Hold your camera away from your body. Angle the bottom (which is actually the top) of the phone away from your body to capture all the way down to your shoes
- Practice angles and cropping the photo so that you don’t have a long arm sticking out of the side of your photo.
