What makes the ultimate Instagram shoe selfie? Having a well laid out photo. To do this, go to your iPhone settings, head over to the Camera settings, and turn on your camera grid. The grid will help you position your shoes—and any props you decide to use—in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

Find an interesting backdrop.

Are your shoes cute but plain? Find an interesting backdrop—a fun floor, a chalked sidewalk, or a fancy rug to add an eye-catching element to your photo.

Add props.

If you’re looking to spice up your shot, props work, too. Hold a boutique of flowers, grab a coffee, or stand by a display of pumpkins to convey your excitement for fall.

Flex your feet.

Focus on your feet—and flex them a bit, too. Flexing your feet can give you the allusion of a defined ankle, and draw more attention down to your feet (and your shoe selfie!).

Stick your butt out.

Another tip for the perfect shoe selfie? If you’re standing, stick your butt out. It sounds strange, sure, but it’s guaranteed to give you the perfect shoe selfie (sans wrinkled pants!).

Strike a pose.

Have a new pair of athletic kicks to show off? Strike a pose that accentuates the shoes. You’ll get a cool, full-body athletic shot without making the shoes seem like the main focus.
