How To Master The Shoes Selfie
We’ve already covered how to take awesome Instagram photos in general, and have now moved on to master classes including how to excel at the flat lay, and today’s installment: how to take the best shoe selfies.
Scroll down for our game-changing tips so your footwear can be ready for the spotlight sans any of common the hang-ups (we’re talking veiny feet and weirdly giant legs).
Take your photos with a grid overlay, so that you can make sure your feet are lined up evenly. If you plan on posting shoe selfies periodically, you’ll also want to place you feet in the same area of the photo for consistency. The examples here are appealing, because they are all shot dead center. On iPhones you can add a grid to your camera in settings, or simply take the photo within the Instagram applicacation, which also has built-in gridlines.
If you really want to commit to the best photo, take thirty seconds to sit or lay down and put your legs in the air. We know it sounds crazy, but it will drain the blood from your legs and feet, which will temporarily minimize any popping veins on the top of your feet. For fair-skinned ladies, it will also make your feet look less red and/or pink.
