Lexi Thompson's five tips to taking the perfect selfie

January 20, 2015

ORLANDO -- Lexi Thompson may be one of the best golfers in the world, a major winner and a general inspiration for young women everywhere. But take all that away and she'll remain, without doubt, the best selfie-taker on tour. There's an art to taking a selfie. We caught up with Thompson at PGA Merchandise Show Demo Day to ask how she does it:

1. Good Lighting

"Good lighting is the most important thing. You can't take a good selfie if the lighting is bad."

2. Do It Alone__

__"Make sure nobody's looking, otherwise everyone will look at you. You've got to pick the right moment to take your selfie."

3. No Flash__

"Make sure the flash is off. If the flash is on and you try to take a mirror selfie, you'll light up the whole room by mistake. It's really embarrassing."

__4. Chill Out

"Relax. It's just a selfie. Have fun with it."

5. No Photobombs__

__"Make sure there's nobody doing anything weird in the background. It ruins the whole selfie. No photobombs."
