Three good things about selfies

Throw Out The Insecurities

Generally, people aren’t very photogenic and many people who don’t like photos being taken are often insecure with how they look. With a selfie, because you can take a photo over and over again until you think you look flattering, your insecurities tend to be less as you build confidence. The more selfie postings a person tends to upload, you will find the more comfortable in their skin they are.

You’re The Photographer

Not only are you able to catch your best angle but you also get to catch yourself at your best angles. By taking your own photo you get to edit out blemishes or any other mark that you may not want people to see. This can help you to be more comfortable taking your photo, giving you time to become accustomed to taking a photo of yourself.

Have Fun With It

Taking your own selfie allows you to have as much fun with it as you like. This is because you have control with what you want other to see and you can make yourself your own art project. Having fun with your selfies also gives you plenty of new and exciting angles of yourself to explore.
