Today selfies have become an important part of many people’s lives. Especially social networks lovers like to document every moment of their day and which better way than a photo that we can share with our online community?
But selfies can’t be taken just like a simple photos, there’s an art to taking attention taking selfies that your friends can’t avoid to notice.
1- Strike a pose. One of the most important steps required to take a good selfie is capturing a good angle. Turning our head from left to right we can understand which one is our best profile and we can make our features appear less flat. A trick? Holding your camera a little higher than your head will make your eyes appear bigger and your nose won’t appear like a “pig nose”
2-Be simple but original. We don’t want our selfies to look boring, right? so we should share selfies about what represents our daily life, but in an original way. So instead of sharing photos of each of our meals we could focus our attention on our special meal, so if we’re eating something different or we cooked something we’re especially proud of we can share it and everybody will be interested!
3-Full-length selfies. One of the difficult types of selfies to take are the full-length ones; It’s not easy to find the right mirror or to understand in which position our body is better valorized, but this doesn’t mean we should give up on sharing our new outfits or the results of our body workouts.
So these are the tips:
-Focus your selfie on your body and try to reduce the attention that could be given to random objects around you
-Try different position in order to understand how you can make your body appear better, but always try to be natural. Simplicity is always the best!
4-Filters. Today natural selfies are almost extinct because of filters: we can use them to better ourselves in the photo if we’re not happy with how we look but we can also fix the light of photo and many other features so they can be very useful if we don’t end up with making our photo looking visibly photoshopped
5-Watch out for photo-bombers. Even if some of the most funniest selfies include bombers, if we want to take a good a “professional” selfie we should watch out for them. So take a quick look around you in order to be sure that no one and nothing is ready to be an unwanted part of your selfie
6-. Better the back camera! We usually see girls and boys taking selfies with their front camera, but we forget that every mobile phone’s back camera has a higher definition than the front one. So after a little of practice we can try to use the back camera and we’ll have even more cute selfies
