  • Updated

When using your mobile device to take a selfie, please be sure to follow these tips:

  • Try holding the phone at arm’s length, or ask someone to take the picture for you
  • Hold your phone steady to avoid blur
  • Ensure you are in a well-lit area that’s close to a window or light source
  • If you are outside, face the sun — but try not to squint
  • Be mindful of backlighting
  • Avoid shadows running across your face
  • Make sure your lens is clean
  • Make sure there are no filters applied on your camera app
  • Ensure there is a clutter-free background or wall behind you
