Taking the Perfect Selfie Requires the Right Tools and Setting

A little over 3 years ago, we at CurveMonsters posted a set of guidelines for taking the best selfies for us to consider posting on our popular Instagram page. The response was overwhelming, and 3 years later, the advice we gave is still relevant and needed. If you haven’t checked it out, please feel free to do so.

This brief blog post simply highlights two other best practices for taking the best selfies to increase your chances of getting a repost on our social media pages. Using any tool to stabilize your pictures and getting them at the perfect camera angle is a must. And that is even more urgent for videos, where shaky hands can often blue parts of the video and leave them with unimpressive angles. The videos we include for our very effective “Lifestyles of CurveMonsters” promo campaign are stable, even and have impressive angles.

iPhone 8 Camera Mounting Case

We recommend using a tripod or anti-gravity suction phone case like the one available on this site (pictured above). If you already have one, great. The idea is to mount your phone so that videos are as stable as possible.

Something else even more important than mounting your phone camera is lighting. We cannot stress this enough. Poor lighting is the enemy of the perfect selfie. One way to help increase lighting for selfies is to use a vanity mirror (pictured below) in conjunction with the overall lighting in the area you’re in.
