Taking a selfie is an exciting and fun way to show the world more about your fashion sense, personality and confidence. From presidents to award winner actresses and actors, almost everyone is doing it. But, taking a selfie doesn’t necessarily mean that you always have to point the camera in front of your face and then shoot. There’s always an art in taking your selfie. This way, it will become more impressive and more creative to look at.
We’ve come up with our 6 best ways for you to perfect the “rocket science” of making a selfie – and send you on your way to instant Instagram recognition.
1. Take Selfies With Makeup
If you want to have that perfect selfie, why not try to use a blowdryer, make-up, and lipstick for your appearance to become more impressive and more stunning. You will definitely appear good and confident after you have applied all these items.
2. Make the Most Out of Your Phone’s Camera
A perfect selfie is achieved right after you have used the perfect phone. The quality of your selfie will also become better if you use a phone with a good camera.
3. Light Up!
Poor lighting can break or make your selfie. A too dim environment will stop you from seeing your selfie photos clearly. A too bright environment may also appear as if you are a ghost. Most people who want to take selfies outdoor choose to take photos an hour before the sunset and an hour before the sunrise. If you are stuck in your indoor environment, you can still find some of the best light sources to help you with your selfie photo. A huge and nice window is already a perfect avenue for natural light in your selfie photo.
4. Zoom In
If you really want to emphasize your face during your selfie, never forget to zoom in the settings of the camera. Well, this will somehow appear to be a self-portrait. This will somehow help you to clearly see the main subject of the photo in a large size and in a nice way. This will also make things closer together.
5. Crop Lightly
Unless the background is necessary, you must never crop it out. If you want to cut out some busy and distracting background that will make your selfie photo a bit better, you can always do so. Just crop the picture lightly and show off your best.
6. Put Emphasis on Your Emotion
A selfie photo will never appear perfect as you want without the use of proper emotion. Try to consider the kind of emotion you want to emphasize in the photo. Smile if you’re happy and show a glow of joy on your face. When you do so, you’re assured that you will not only show confidence but also your personality.
