A kid from Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood is not supposed to be the No. 1 overall pick by his hometown team and the youngest MVP in NBA history.

The Struggle Is Real—How To Take the Perfect Selfie

Scoff if you must, but chances are, you’ve taken one yourself.

We’re talking about selfies.

You’d think snapping a quick pic of yourself is simple, but even the most avid selfie enthusiast can attest: the struggle is real. So here are a few tips…
When it comes to finding the right angle
Tilt your phone by 45 degrees—that’s a little above your eye line—for the most flattering selfie. No double chins and no weird shadows to worry about.

Finding the right light

The most flattering light sources are those of windows streaming natural light, softly backlit walls or even the flash of your camera phone reflecting against a mirror.

Choosing the perfect filter

Props to the brave souls who can post selfies filter-free but for those who choose to apply a layer or two, know that it can help soften and conceal less-than-perfect snaps. Valencia, with a bit of contrast, is by far the best one.

Framing and background

A little bit of staging goes a long way. What is the point of a mega-watt smile when you’re standing in front of a pile of dirty dishes? Or a parking lot? Snap your selfie against a stunning location, it makes for a better self portrait.
