A good tip is to go from above,
00:07
(camera clicking)
00:09
and get lots of light.
00:10
Huh, not bad.
00:12
I always pose with my left side of my face.
00:15
I actually find myself posing more on my left side
00:17
of my face, even on set now,
00:19
since I know now how exactly it looks.
00:22
So, I mean--
00:23
(camera clicks)
00:25
Make sure to focus on your face,
00:27
so you just tilt your head like this, and be like--
00:29
(camera clicking)
00:30
You wanna flip the camera round, obviously that faces you,
00:34
or if you've got extra-long arms, you can actually
00:36
shoot it this way and press the volume buttons
00:38
which shoots the picture just so you know.
00:40
You gotta make the hair wild...
00:45

00:48

00:51
(camera clicks)
00:53
You always wanna go a little bit higher,
00:55
sort of find the good light, and
00:58
I always like to blow a kiss, so (hums)--
01:01
(camera clicks twice)
01:04
I like to tilt my head, kind of with the phone,
01:08
'cause if you just do it kind of straight,
01:10
it looks like your neck is too thick with the face.
01:13
So just a little to the side
01:14
so you can see a little bit more of the chin.
01:20
(camera clicks four times)
01:23
I like different angles, like in the middle,
01:27
(camera clicks)
01:29
right side.

(camera clicks)
01:30
You should know
01:32
your favorite
01:34
feature, whatever's your best angle,
01:37
I usually like to take the pictures,
01:40
I take the phone and I put it high up like this,
01:43
for some reason I like it, I don't know.
01:45
I don't like to do it, oh well.
01:48
(camera clicks)
01:49
It's all about the filter, right?
01:51
Yup.
01:52
Ooh.
