Angle is very important

Camera Angle: This means that the angle at which you hold the smartphone in relation to your face or body. It should be parallel to your face horizontally and vertically to photos to have a natural look. Never hold the camera angle below your face level unless aim to achieve a type of special image effects to your nostrils showing. Note that if you hold the phone slightly above the head and angle it slightly down, the effect will be more enjoyable. You can take a selfie raising the camera held as high as you can and put it on the floor. There is no limit to variations.

Head angle: As the phone, you can keep your head at different angles for different effects. The simplest way is to keep the head upright, not turned up or bent. Take sample photos in all three positions. Then consider turning your face at an angle to the camera. The result depends on your type of face. Three quarters sideways view profile and views, plus full headshots are options. Experience with everyone know that gives the best shot.

Lighting angle: This makes a big difference to the picture. If you must shoot outdoors, try to capture selfies in the early morning or evening. Always face the sun or light source and check if the light falls on the camera lens. Watch for shadows across the face and angle to the most pleasant effect of light and shadow. Taking selfies with the reflected light is best to look shadow-less.
