[VIDEO] How To Take A Perfect Selfie

By Adenosine (M)April 19, 2017, 10:40:29 PM
It’s no secret that selfie-loving youths spend hours preening themselves to capture the perfect picture before editing and uploading them online.

But now, a scientist appears to have found the perfect formula for taking a self-portrait, and she says it all comes down to the angle.

According to Dr Anukka Lindell from La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia, who has scoured thousands of selfies, Instagrammers prefer to snap themselves from the left-hand side as it delivers the most flattering results on screen, despite an estimated 10 per cent of the population being left-handed.
 
Writing in Frontiers in Psychology, Lindell also draws on previous research suggesting the angle makes the subject appear ‘slimmer’ and ‘more likeable’.

Lindell, who specialises in cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience, has published a study proving that the so-called ‘left-cheek bias’ appears to directly impact how good you look in a photo.

The professor trawled through 2,000 selfies from 200 participants on the photo-sharing site and found that the vast majority were taken from the left – rather than front-on or from the right.

Lindell says selfies taken at an angle are more flattering than front on (such as passport photo style), as they show more angles, highlight cheekbones, and make the subject look slimmer.

Left cheek poses also appear more ’emotionally open and expressive’ than right-cheek poses, making the subject appear more ‘likeable’.
