    "Selfies are life. This video gives some good basic tips for selfie taking with a camera phone, although there are better tutorials out there by professional photographers. One that I saw involved a Big Mac box and a paperclip for a smart phone and offered professional level portraits from a smartphone, but if you're just the worst photographer ever, this video is a good place to start. Its all about composition. "

    "I found nothing unique or new in this article. I am not really on board with the selfie fad, but this article is basically just about photography. Taking a good selfie is just taking a good picture. I am slightly annoyed that this article exists since it means our generation now researches selfies instead of photography."

    "While the video offers some tips on how to take "the perfect selfie," I don't see this video being anymore informative that 100's of other guides available on the internet. I guess that the video format is preferable to some even though the views don't show it."
