Pano Selfie Is The New Selfie


Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

You’ve pretty much mastered the selfie … impeccable arm extension, flawless duck face, precision head tilt.

All that perfection can get boring.

It’s time to make the switch to Pano Selfies.

Give your selfies some edge with distorted perspective, glitchy stitching and guaranteed laughs from all who see ‘em.

It’s easy!

1. Put your camera into Panoramic mode or fire up any auto-stitching pano app.

2. Point your camera at your face and start the pano. It can be tricky since you have to use the back-facing camera, but practice makes perfect (or a bit easier).

3. Move you camera from one side of your face to the other. Use your whole arm, don’t just tilt the phone. Add wiggles, bumps, move the camera closer/farther from your face or change your expression as the phone passes by, for max silliness.

4. Share! Throw your masterpiece onto the web with #panoselfie.

5. Check Out Others’ Pano Selfies and Have a Chuckle
