    Thanks for the tips. You have no idea how many times I have scrapped the selfie, because it looks wrong!ReplyCancel

      Unfortunately, it has taken a lot of practice. That’s deeply shallow but hey, I own that! 😉ReplyCancel

    Great tips,I prefer a mirror selfie over a turn the camera around to face you ,they never turn out for me!ReplyCancel

      I’m so used to taking selfies now that I find it hard if someone else takes a pic of me because it’s never the same!ReplyCancel

      Nope, it really doesn’t. You’re obvs more of a natural than you give yourself credit for! xReplyCancel

    I love this Kimba – I’m desperate to figure how to do this. Duh – why not just move my full length mirror to a better spot! Hurrah for loads more photos now 🙂ReplyCancel

      I’ve tried doing that before but my cheval mirror is too narrow and too tilted, so it made me look very out of proportion. Loving my thrifted wooden mirror! The hardest spot is actually finding a tidy enough spot so that the reflections don’t look too bad! We don’t have enough room in the house for that, but I just love my little tropage garden. My balcony is a good spot too xxReplyCancel

    I just need a full length mirror now! (Miss 16 has one on her wall in her room but usually there is so much stuff in her floor-drobe I can barely get in the room, let alone snap a selfie …)ReplyCancel

      I’ve been stalking the local opshops. Picked up this little baby for a tenner! I store it against the wall next to the fish tank and it actually looks quite nice there, as it reflects our little fishy friends! xReplyCancel

    Great tips and look at the camera in the mirror 🙂ReplyCancel

    • Kim-Marie Williams - 4 July 2013 - 11.36 am

      Yup, if you’re doing a close up, for beauty shots, that’s a great tip. Reverse the camera and use it as your “mirror” so you get a great closeup shot without the camera in the shot. I just keep seeing all these mirror selfies for outfit shots where I can’t see people’s faces. It’s not going to save the world but if I see my smiley faces in my daily IG feed, then I’ll be happier! 🙂ReplyCancel
