That’s right; we don’t need to fork out a ton of money for a professional photo shoot anymore thanks to the incredible camera quality lying in our pockets. Although many of us have spent hours practicing and perfecting the best angles, it seems as though not everyone is born to take selfies after all. At least their downfalls mean we now get to enjoy some of the funniest selfie mistakes ever, right?
One of the most important parts of any selfie is getting the winning pose. It can make or break the entire photo, but did you know the pose you pull could say more about your personality than you once thought? It’s said people who look at the camera are likely to be more agreeable than others while hiding your location or background can say you’re concerned about your privacy.
It seems as though we’ll get to see more about women’s personalities than men’s as females dominate the percentage of selfies taken in all major cities around the world. All of these snaps have led to quite the influx of uploads. In fact, 1,000 selfies are uploaded to Instagram every ten seconds. That’s more than 5 billion selfies a day. Wow. Even so, these snaps are only responsible for around 3 – 5% of uploads to the internet. Perhaps we’re not as selfie-obsessed as we once thought? Not when there are so many sunset and food snaps to upload instead.
Many of us could spend hours trying to get the perfect selfie. From practicing poses to getting the eyes just right, searching out the ideal lighting to creating a picture-perfect background, and using all the right hashtags to combining the perfect amount of fun and sass – there is so much to think about when it comes to snapping a photo of ourselves.
Unfortunately, it seems as though not everyone thinks out their selfies before snapping away, let alone double checking before uploading them to the internet. Taking a photo of ourselves might seem easy, but it can be hard to get them just right. Perhaps it should be back to the drawing board for some of these happy snappers after they have revealed the funniest selfie mistakes ever.
