You are probably scrolling through Instagram right now and just admiring beautiful girls and their flawless selfies and you are like OH WOW!!! Why don’t my selfies look this cute?! We all want to get likes, new followers and tons of sweet comments immediately after posting our selfies because this makes our self-esteem even go up.
You can level up your selfie game by following this simple and easy tricks every time when snapping let me help you take your selfie game to the next level.
- The number one thing you should always consider is lighting.
Lighting is key when taking photos not only selfies but whatever kind of photo you are taking make sure there is lighting. Natural light in this case is the best. If you are indoors and you are taking a photo and you have a window close to you, you should face that window, this is because the window lets in light.
Maybe it is at night and there is no natural light, get yourself a ring light it would come in handy during this time. If you are one who likes photos, I’d advise you to invest in a ring light and wow you will never regret it because your photos will look bomb. If you do not want one you can always improvise light for example you can ask your friend to light her torch for you so you can have the front light. With front lighting your photo will look lit.
And I know you know about “golden hour” this is the perfect time and perfect light when you are taking selfies like I mean you will never go wrong with golden hour! Golden hour will give you the most beautiful glow.
LIGHTING IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN TAKING A SELFIE!!!
- Know your angles.
Tilt your head, move around just play with your selfie till you find the perfect angle that works for you and your face. You will have a variety of photos to choose from after doing this and also make sure your camera is focused before snapping.
- Smile, smile and smile more!
Smile when taking your photos and don’t let it look forced just relax and let it look natural. Looks at yourself on the mirror and practice till you get it right. If it doesn’t look really nice or you are not content with how it looks you can try something else like blowing a kiss, removing your tongue and playing with it or anything like just try and make your selfie look nice not flat by just looking at the camera and not even doing anything with your face.
- Use filters
Look for the right filters and apps to make your selfie look bomb. There is no shame in editing your photos before posting them on the gram you can brighten them and play with other editing tools till you get it right. Also note that in as much as you are editing your posts don’t over edit them to the point where they look unnatural. When editing, edit lightly. Snapchat also has the best filters and they make a selfie look beautiful. You can use snapchat to take a photo so that you don’t have to edit the photo. Also remember to brighten your teeth and eyes when editing.
- Be mindful of your background
I mean you you can not just take a selfie anywhere, try and make sure your background is catchy and beautiful to attract more attention to your selfie. Your background can also be simple and look bomb just make sure the place is tidy and clean. Also beware of photobombers.
- You can also go with a mirror selfie!!
If your selfie does not look that bomb I mean there is always another option. You can get creative and opt for a mirror selfie. Mirror selfies are also really cute you only need to make sure your mirror is clean.
NOW YOU CAN GO ON AND SHINE AS YOU TAKE YOUR SELFIES!!
