Most smartphones have dual cameras. The back camera use for taking pictures and the front using for video call. But when we have any selfie largest of us using the front camera. Rather than dealing with your mobile front camera, play with the rear camera. “I know well you’d not look on your face on the mobile screen, and its little hard to get the capture button. But if you try, it’ll be easy to you.” The back camera resolution is higher than the front camera. So your selfie will be crystal clear

People always enjoy doing fun. In a selfie, they are showing various type of appearance. It’s OK, various types of poses make your looks different. But over expose make your face ugly.

Don’ts #5. Taking selfies in a sensitive area:
Many selfie lovers making the embarrassing mistake. They take the snap of a sensitive area. But Always we have to avoid selfies in this area. “In a flood area, any form of human suffering or in front of an accident. Posing in front of this sensitive area proves your less human being.” So if you’re in this area, it’s best to pocket your mobile phone and do something good for suffering people.
Don’ts #6. Selfie Takes In Wrong time:
Selfie, while driving a car or bike is not advised. “I have seen so many young couples are crazy about selfie while riding a motorbike. “The girl sitting on the back seat and lean on the boy’s backside to take the selfie”.

Worst… This can do only foolish people. Who doesn’t understand what people will say about the picture? Selfie is an art. So many kinds of artistic idea you can show in your selfies. But it doesn’t mean, you will show your body part to the public. Friends will quote acute comments on your picture. Because no one wants to show your body part. They prefer to have your creativity. So in next don’t do the things take selfie.
Don’ts #8. Don’t Use Flash Light:
Now in the market, lots of branded mobile finding with front led flash. But I don’t understand, what is the front flash utility apart from taking the selfie. The mobile camera flash enhances picture clarity. But, selfies with the flashlight is not suitable. It glows your face. But distorts your natural looks. “The main cause of red-eye effect in a picture is flash”. So don’t use flash when taking any selfie. Although it’s good, avoid flash to take any kind of close snap.
Don’ts #9. Force to animals:
“Animals are born who they are, accept it, and that is that. They live with greater peace than people do.” ― Gregory Maguire
We can’t read animals’ minds and sometimes you can’t judge your lovely dog’s behavior. Your pet is friendly and obedient. You like hugging and selfie with your dog. But you don’t understand how animals will react to your hug. He may react aggressively to you. So don’t disturb them. If they come to you, that’s fine. Otherwise, don’t force them.
I am as well eager about having selfie. But never took any risk to get it. So many people died to take danger steps and day by day increasing the selfie-related death. People like mountain-top selfies, selfie on a tower, posing in front of a coming train. Even though with dangerous animals. It’s all being the deadly stupid try. Don’t take any life risk attempt. Learn the things take selfie to make it beautiful without any risk. Life is the most valuable thing. So always save your life before taking a risky selfie shot.
