Kim Kardashian ain’t got nothing on my selfie game. Everyone can take a selfie, but do you know the difference between a selfie and a portrait selfie? You might not know this but there are certainly levels of selfies or celfies (as they say in France). Yup, there are what I would say around 5 popular types of selfies that you should be aware of (feel free to add more in the comments section).
The different types of selfies are as follows:
1) Full body/half body selfies
2) Car Selfies
3) Best Friend Selfies
4) Bedroom Selfies
5) Selfie Portraits
Yes, these are ranked in order of appeal. 1 being least appealing unless you are half naked, then switch that with a best friend selfie. In all seriousness, whenever I post a photo of myself I try to make sure it is done in an artistic, portrait style way.
I get friends to take a photo, prop my phone up on timer or use an iphone camera remote to take the photo. iPhone remotes can be bought pretty much anywhere, I got mine at CVS for $10. I feel like when photos are more lifestyle oriented you are able to show more sides to your photo to your followers. That’s what this is all about right? The point of Instagram to me, is the ability to show your life in the best way possible, through your artistic lens. It’s not how others see your life, it’s how you see it that counts. Now that we’ve mastered the art of the selfie, which filter do we use…. #InstagramProblems.
