While on vacation, you want to kick back, relax, and explore.
These days, we know you also want to take a boatload of selfies. Since we can’t take the adventures with us, we often rely on photos to relive our days of freedom and fun — at least that’s what we tell ourselves.
There’s nothing worse than a bad #selfie.
To ensure you have the best possible self-indulgent pictures, we called upon a man who knows how to make people look good — Russell James, world traveler and photographer for Victoria’s Secret.
Russell gave us his top tips for taking the perfect vacation selfie.

Get the Right Angle
Always hold the camera a little higher than your chin. Your face looks better if the camera is just slightly higher than your eye line. It does wonders for the double (and sometimes triple) chins that we get in photos every now and then. Keep your hand as far away as possible because when the camera gets too close, your face starts to look a bit weird in photos. You can zoom and crop later.
