Love them, or hate them selfies are here to stay. Everywhere you go, if you look around you will notice some trying to capture the perfect selfie. You too can achieve the perfect selfie with these 5 tips. #NoFilter necessary!
GET THAT GOOD LIGHTING
Good lighting is essential for the perfect selfie. Natural light is normally the best, but sometimes you have to work with your circumstances. Remember to always face the light. A quick tip for finding the right indoor lighting is to hold your camera in hand and turn in a circle until you find the best lighting in the room.
ANGLES ARE EVERYTHING!
An angle can make or break your selfie. This can be very tricky to learn at first. A good trick is to keep your chin down & camera slightly elevated above for more flattering selfies.
When mastering the selfie game always consider your surroundings. A messy background can be distracting to your audience. When in doubt crop it out!
PUMP UP THE VOLUME!
If you’re a curly-haired girl reading this, don’t worry if your hair is 80% of your selfie! The bigger the hair, the better the selfie! Embracing your curls exuberates confidence. Grab that afro pick and create some volume. Another insider tip is using the “details” feature on the Facetune picture editing app. Using this feature will enhance your curls even more.
All in all, it’s just a selfie! Embrace your smile, your beauty, and even your flaws. Have fun and don’t forget to smile!
