      "Selfies are life. This video gives some good basic tips for selfie taking with a camera phone, although there are better tutorials out there by professional photographers. One that I saw involved a Big Mac box and a paperclip for a smart phone and offered professional level portraits from a smartphone, but if you're just the worst photographer ever, this video is a good place to start. Its all about composition."

Most people don;t realize that the pretty girl selfies they see online are probably the 500th picture they took and they pick the best one. Good tutorial to help improve the selfie generation."
