    1) don't take a selfie, get a photographer
    2) have a good body
    3) if your face isn't that good wide brim hat all day!

  • Nope.

    Here's the real trick to taking good selfies in any clothing.

    Google the time of sunrise/sunset in your area, and only take the picture +/- 45 minutes of that time.

    That's it. Done.

    • @COCOCHANEL In photography, this is known as the golden hour.

      Basically, because the sun is at a very low angle, the light bounces differently off the surrounding background and off the atmosphere differently, and it makes for the most beautiful pictures regardless of the camera and skill of the photographer.

    • i see interesting hmm

  • Unfortunately, I live in a world where front camera is called as selfie camera, regular pics are called as selfies. I hate this word.

    "How To Take The Perfect Bikini Selfie"
    #1. Be fit. (I meant to say "pretty" but here's a PC word)
    #2. Wear bikini
    #3. Stand in front of mirror
    #4. Make an appropriate posture
    #5. Capture
    Bonus: #6. If you have an iPhone, don't cover its logo. Show-off!

    PS: Does the girl no. 5 exist on this planet?
    PPS: The pic I used in my opinion is not mine and I don't hold any copyright. All credits to her. I didn't save her pic in my HDD nor I'm stalking her. I just found that on Google images' search results so, don't sue me.

  • Your mytake says "bikini selfies". None of these pics were taken by the person in the picture, which is what a selfie is. I would love to be the photographer for any of those women.

  • None of these are selfies.. and none of the pieces of advice were about how to use angles or lighting or posing etc to look better in a picture. This is literally just a bunch of pictures of conventionally pretty women in Swimsuits...

  • A. None of these are selfies. They are professionally shot pictures with a photographer
    B. These girls are most likely all models
    C. These are not all bikinis

    So my read from this take is if you want a perfect bikini selfie do the following
    1. Hire a professional photographer to follow you around
    2. Be a model
    3. Actually wear a bikini

    This take is a rip off and sucks. Sorry
