Anatomy of a Selfie
This isn't candid. It's calculated.
- •This is the best of 16 photos taken in my bathroom.
- •I stood with my arm extended and hand tilted in such a way as to get the most slimming angle that could also pass as natural.
- •My head is turned to the side and part of my cheek is obscured by hair to hide the sheer width of my face.
- •I used contour to hide my double chin (not very well).
- •My forehead is huge so, as per usual, it was not included in the picture.
- •This isn't candid. It's calculated.
- •Producing a picture that depicts me as anything other than a gutter troll makes me feel good about myself
- •(Or rather, it helps me to hate myself a little less)
