A must. You’re not always going to have another person around, so you’re gonna have to learn to do that shit yourself. For a full-body shot, you will need a head-to-toe mirror so everyone can see how good you look. But you can’t come across like you’re bragging; the picture must be subtle. Obviously you’re taking the picture because you think it’s flattering, but write something that has nothing to do with the picture, so your followers wont think you’re narcissistic. Things like “My father walked out on my family when I was 4,” or “Just got molested by my dentist.” People will see your picture and think you look great for having been abandoned as a child or recently touched by your dentist. It’s called “strategy,” people, look it up. If you have name-brand fancy shit, casually bring it into the picture so that your followers can see that your lifestyle is heads-and-shoulders above theirs.
And if you’re in high school, take lots and lots of full-body pictures. Trust me kids, this is the best your bodies are ever gonna look. It’s all downhill from here. Soak it up.
