5 tips for taking the perfect selfie on your travels

1_____

One of the key things to think about when you're taking a travel selfie is to remember what’s behind you. If you're taking a selfie with the Eiffel Tower, you don't want to place yourself where the tower looks like it's growing out of your head. Be mindful in a busy environment of other people in your shot. Just make sure you don't have anyone making any nasty hand gestures or pulling any funny faces. Trust me, you think you have the perfect shot then up pops a random tourist with their tongue out and ruins your picture - not a good look.

2____

If you want all of the Eiffel Tower or the Leaning Tower of Pisa in your shot, you may have to think about holding the camera lower down so that the angle faces up. It's something to be aware of when looking at taking portrait selfies with tall monuments or buildings. Be creative; try tilting the camera slightly to fit everything in and to ensure you capture the best image of you and the best background.

 3_____

There is nothing worse than taking a great selfie and then looking back at it and it's blurred and unclear. It can be difficult to keep the phone still and push the button on the screen at the same time. If it's possible, use your external button (depending on what phone you have). That way, you are not trying to do hand yoga with your camera while trying to take the image.

 4_____

Too many times I see pouting or over-posed selfies. In a travel selfie, we are trying to capture a memory. You might never get back to this special location again in your life, so the last thing you want is a picture of a wonderful moment and location with you pouting or pulling a funny face. Relax, smile naturally, and remember where you are. Take in the wonder of that special location and enjoy who and where you are at that time. The picture will reflect you, if you are truly natural and yourself.

 5_____

If you've managed to get the best light for your selfie, then in reality you won't need to edit it. Remember you are trying to take a picture that encapsulates the memory of your travel experience, so a lot of editing can actually make that memory completely different or false. If you feel a little extra saturation may be a help, or changing the image to black and white will help with over exposure, then these are the only things I would edit, along with a little cropping.

Read the texts and answer the questions 1-8. Choose A, B, C or D.

 A. The Remote Control

After a long day at work or school, many of us come home, jump on the sofa and reach for the remote control. For today's generation it is normal not to have to stand up to change channels on the television or to turn on the music. This is, however, a relatively recent invention. It was not until 1950 that the first commercial television remote control was created. The Zenith Radio Corporation called it the 'Lazy Bone'. In those days, however, the Lazy Bone was not wireless: it was attached to the television by a long cable. This was seen as a danger, as people kept tripping and falling over it. Just five years later, in 1955, the first wireless TV remote control was created by Eugene Polley and this soon became very popular indeed. Opinions are divided as to whether this invention is necessarily a good thing; many believe we have created a generation of couch potatoes - people who are too lazy to move from the sofa.

 B. The Telephone

Alexander Graham Bell was born in Scotland in 1847. He was a very talented person; a great inventor, an expert in speech and also very musical. His most famous invention was, of course, the telephone in the 1870's. While experimenting with electrical signals, he discovered he could hear a sound coming over the wire. On 10th March 1876 he made the first telephone call to his assistant, Mr Watson, in the next room. The very first words ever spoken over the phone were 'Mr Watson. Come here. I want to see you.' The telephone has transformed the way the world communicates.

 C. The Microwave

Dr Percy L. Spencer invented the microwave oven by accident, in 1946. He was already known as an electronics expert and worked with machines called magnetrons which produced microwave radiation. One day, he stopped in front of one of these machines when it was on and he noticed that a chocolate bar in his pocket had melted. Being an experienced inventor, he decided to test his theory with popcorn and, sure enough, when he placed the popcorn near the machine it became so hot it popped! From this first experiment, it was clear that microwaves were able to heat food very quickly. This is how the microwave oven was born

 D. The Automobile

The very first self-propelled vehicle was actually invented in 1769 by a French army engineer, Nicolas Cugnot. It was powered by heating water and creating steam to drive the engine. It was a very heavy machine with only 3 wheels. Over 100 years later, the very first gas-powered motor engine was invented by Nicolaus Otto in 1876. However, the fathers of the modern automobile industry are considered to be Carl Benz, who invented the petrol engine in 1885, and Gottlieb Daimler, who built a car with an engine of his own design a year later. Daimler's engine was much lighter than any other before it, and it was soon being produced in large numbers. It was to change the transport habits of the world.
