Top Tips for your Selfies
Please remember to:
- Print the selfie sign off using colour ink
- Write in large, clear writing so the writing is visible and legible
- Make sure the person standing in the photo isn’t too far away from the camera so the writing can be read
- Hold the selfie sign straight so the paper doesn’t crumple and the writing doesn’t become distorted
- Be wary of the camera flash – this can sometimes reflect on the paper meaning that the writing will not be visible
