There are several ways to take a good selfie including, a good selfie camera, a selfie camera app, a selfie editor, attractive selfie poses. Here are some tips to help you out.
1. Get selfie ready
Whether you’re taking a dressy selfie or a bedhead selfie, a little prep is a must. Not even Beyonce can look hot and gorgeous right out of bed. So check to see if you are picture-ready. Position your accessories at their best so that you can flaunt them well. Use your front camera to practise before you begin your main shoot.
2. Watch out for the lighting
The right lighting can make or break your selfie. Make sure the light source is always in front of you and at a level above your eyes. A well-lit selfie will give you a clear picture, thus improving your photo filters too.
3. Get the perfect visibly white smile
No selfie is complete without dazzling white teeth. You just cannot go wrong if you get the perfect smile. The key is to ensure that your teeth are visibly white.
4. Keep the background interesting
As much as you are the main focus of your picture, a bad background is a total turn off. Just imagine a pile of clothes in the back or a shabby wall. Always make sure you choose a spot that’s pretty or quirky or at least interesting. Beach selfies, terrace selfies or even a cute bed selfie can improve the picture.
5. Find your best angle
The best angle for a classic selfie is with the phone held high above your head and away at about a 45 degree angle. But this may not always work. While some may look good facing straight into the camera, others may look better with a simple head tilt. Try several angles, until you figure the ones that work best for you.
6. To pout or not to pout!
Although the pout has been a common selfie pose, it may not work for everyone. There’s a very thin line between getting the pout right and pulling an over-exaggerated pucker face. If you’ve still not gotten it right, dump it! Flash that dazzling white smile, you can never go wrong!
7. Go on a selfie rampage
Don’t stop at one or two or even five. The more you click, the better your pictures will get. Your face will get accustomed to holding the right pose for your selfie. So go on a selfie rampage; by the end, you should have at least a few perfect selfies.
8. Watch out for your outstretched arm
The outstretched arm is another thing to watch out for. The arm that takes the selfie will appear ‘huge’ if it gets captured in the selfie. Hold the phone in such a way that your arm doesn’t appear in the foreground.
9. Don’t be repetitive
Your selfies may lose their charm if you keep posing the same way all throughout or if you keep taking them against the same background every time. If you’re wondering why your selfies aren’t getting all those ‘likes’ this could be the reason! Be creative and interesting!
10. Don’t forget to use a filter
Use Instagram or other photo editors to add a filter to your selfie. The colours and lighting added by these filters will make the selfie more interesting. But ensure that you do not use them extensively on every picture or it may just end up looking unnatural and your original picture could lose its charm.
So be yourself & Say Cheese!!! Smile away in your perfect selfie!
