Tips for taking professional looking pictures and videos of yourself

  • Try to hold the camera as far away as possible not to be too close to your face.
  • Try and position your camera slightly above you but not too far above your head.
  • Figure out your light source. You can position yourself in front of a lamp or a window. Natural lighting is always best.
  • Make sure your phone is straight.
  • Remember to smile and look straight at the camera.
  • Feel free to use a timer or intervalometer. For example, you can place your phone on a stack of books or your windowsill and step back. When your phone is on a timer, it makes the process easier.
