The Stories Behind The Extreme Selfies We Can't Forget

HuffPost Live talks with the photographers behind selfies that set the Internet aflame.

Ah, the selfie. These photos taken by and of ourselves have become such a cultural touchstone that there's a museum in Manila specifically designed for taking them and a 448-page book dedicated to Kim Kardashian's collection of them. But what's the secret for snapping a selfie that cuts through the clutter? How about getting an elephant to take it for you? Or taking it on top of a 125-foot-tall statue of Jesus?

HuffPost Live's Josh Zepps talked with a panel of selfie experts on Monday about how to take the most memorable, extreme selfie possible. Check out their tips and see their favorite selfies of their own in the video above.
