Sometimes, all a girl wants to do is Instagram her dinner, but poorly-lit restaurants make for poor selfie material. One creative teen enlisted the help of several teammates to make sure her pizza-eating selfie was perfectly lit.

The volleyball player posted a shot of her eating pizza to Twitter, alongside a photo of several other girls holding up their phones to illuminate her face in the selfie. It’s a trick photographers and videographers use on a daily basis: When shooting in a dark space, you need a key light (front) and fill light (side) to get the movie star look you crave. Why not do it with phones?

The tweet has since gone viral, garnering more than 50,000 retweets.

What can we say, Jane? We appreciate a little ingenuity when we see it.
