How To Take A Positive Selfie: 4 Tips That Will Make Your Negative Selfies Look So Much Better.

Negative, photographic image that reproduces the bright portions of the photographed subject as dark and the dark parts as light areas.

Things to keep in mind

A nice, balanced-looking photograph creates the contrast between the brightest portion and the darkest. Think of it as a couple of Lego bricks, with one standing up straight, and the other laying horizontally. Notice that in the photograph above, the two Lego bricks are colored in the same way — they’re both white.

In the photograph below, however, the Lego bricks are positioned differently:

Take away all the black and white in your photography. Black is obviously used for the darkest portions of your photograph, but you don’t need to see black in every photograph. Instead, take a few seconds to choose a color scheme for your photograph. I prefer to start with color. And the more colors you choose, the more vibrant the final photograph will be.


Think your pictures are too dark? Tapping into the power of a balanced spectrum is a great way to get more of your subject in the frame. Having a mix of light and dark tones will make your image look more balanced and help to pull your subject out of the background.

When you get this simple tweaking just right, your photo will look more natural, have a moody feel, and make your subject stand out more than if you just used your flash on the subjects’ faces.

A selfie always has the possibility of being a distraction for your subject, so using a tripod is a great way to get the selfie shot you want while still keeping your subject as happy as possible


Getting too close or too far will change the way your subject’s face looks and can lead to a less flattering image.

Camera Angle

If you want to take a professional-looking selfie, get up close to your subject. Your camera should be as close to the eye as possible. It should be straight down on the subject’s face, ideally, but angled slightly to the left, if the face is looking down.

Looking straight down creates an upward profile and draws your eye downward. When you look up, the image becomes elongated, and the subject is distorted.

Tilt your camera, so you are looking straight down at the subject. The tilt makes the face appear elongated and to rise and fall, which creates an attractive look.


In taking a selfie, your posture should be erect, like you’re ready to be photographed. Your body should look in balance, neither too straight nor too wobbly.


surely that wasn’t the answer I expected. Though the photos seemed distorted, I was clearly lying. Or was I?

So I decided to ask a friend, a professional photographer, and we went through every single photo. He told me that although the photos did appear to have the same lens flare pattern, the lens flares were not actually the issue.

In order to shoot the perfect selfie, you need to adjust the composition. But this is a skill you will undoubtedly need to practice. For each photo, you take, make a quick adjustment to keep everything looking balanced. For example, in this photo, I shot the black frame as black. I then added a texture using a piece of glass on the right-hand side of the frame.
