How To Take A Selfie | GCN’s Pro Tips


– According to reports,
100 million selfies are taken every single day. Want yours to stand out from the bunch? Then watch this. – A selfie is a selfie and therefore by definition it can’t be taken by any one else, so if you’re gonna take a selfie, you’ve got to do it yourself and not like this. – Next, determine the mood and where your selfie will end up. A Facebook selfie, for example, may have a completely different feel to one that you put on Instagram, so be wary of going multi-platform without thinking about it. – And if it’s on SnapChat, you might want to add in that puppy nose and ears and stuff, possibly. So, for example, moody. Fun. And art house. – And finally, backdrop. Make sure you carefully consider what is in the background of your selfie as that will form an integral part of the photograph, that is of course unless you are going full screen close up like so. – Pro tip, always check
for boogers or bogies in a reflective surface especially if you’re
going really close up. There are numerous techniques to employ but the classic, quick, go-to method especially for cyclists that are on the move and
want to capture themselves and the stunning backdrop is
the extended arm elbow lock. – Yeah, the elbow lock technique gives you much more
stability with your phone and a wider coverage to your photo. It’s very popular amongst cyclists because generally they
perform some of the time all of the time. (upbeat music) – Okay, with the basics
and the technique dialed, let’s now move onto types of selfie. The off center. Subject is left or right of center with the dual focus being
you and a great view. The riding selfie. – Not a method that we can
really endorse here at GCN due to the safety aspect but we do accept that it does exist. – The celeb. You with a cycling celebrity
or other type of celebrity. Delete as applicable. The photo bomb. These work two ways. Either you are bombed by
someone else in your photo, or you selfied your way
into somebody else’s gig. The double. You and someone else but not a celebrity. The fail selfie. As the title suggests, this is when a selfie goes horribly wrong, eyes closed, someone in the background taking a call of nature,
you get the picture. The selfie selfie with someone else taking
a selfie at the same time. So, now you know how to selfie like a pro. – Let us know how you get on
and show us how you get on. By putting your selfies on social media with the hashtag #GCNSelfie. – Yeah, and if you haven’t
already subscribed to GCN, you can do that by clicking on the globe somewhere in this screen. Now, for how to make every ride epic, how about clicking just down here. – Or if you’d like to make
