Learn These 10 Techniques and You’ll Definitely Be a Selfie Expert

It is the world of selfies for sure. We know that you want to have the best selfie ever, now that you have to compete with Ellen DeGeneres’ famous photo, so we've decided to give you the best tips of how to best “selfify” yourself.

 

1.The perfect angle

The most important thing when taking selfies is the right angle. Everyone has a different face, some smaller, some bigger. Make sure you check where your strengths lay. In order to do so, you will have to take a few selfies from various angles to see what works best for you. Ok, maybe more than a few. Then show them to your friends for feedback, because maybe you are being too subjective when it comes to your own face. Then choose the angle that you look best from, and keep it.

 

2. Don’t let the lights go out

Light is important when you take pictures. It is also important when you take selfies. Keep away from backlighting, as it will make a halo on your face. If you don't want to have a ghostly face, take the selfie in a well-lit area, like the bathroom, for example. That's the place where most selfies are made.

 

3. Mirror, mirror

Mirrors are great when you want to see how you look before going out to an important meeting, but not for making selfies. Nonetheless, it is the most used item for selfie-making, because usually people want to show their whole body in the picture. If you are sure that you want to use the mirror, please check and re-check the photos before making them public. Check for the glare of the flash in the mirror, and look at the background. Maybe there are some things that shouldn't be in the picture--like your untidy room, for example.

 

4. Photo apps: Don't be afraid to use them

There are plenty of photo apps out there. So don't be afraid of using them. Using retouching features has little to do with your confidence level. It is your selfie we are talking about. You should look your best.

 

5. Say no to facial expressions

Facial expressions are NOT good for selfies, so keep them out of your picture. This doesn't mean you shouldn't smile. If you want to make another person laugh, try with something else, not with your goofy face. People don't favour seeing fish and duck faces or other weird expressions on your selfie. So next time you take a photo, just smile. It is enough.

 

6. Good camera, good selfie

As the technology advances, more and more smartphones have better cameras made for selfie-making. That doesn't mean that it will turn a frog into a prince, but some smartphones have great features that will soften your face and even make it look younger. Some smartphones have pretty nice zoom lenses, in case you want to zoom in on your lovely looking face.

 

7. Be still

When you take a selfie, you have to be still because you are not relying on both hands, but one. You have to take care of the light, your pose and angle and take a photo with one hand all at the same time. It takes practice, but we are sure that you have mastered the art of selfie-making by now.

 

8. Be confident

This is something close to the say-no-to-facial-expressions thing. When you take a selfie you want to make sure you look confident. And have fun while taking them. It will surely pay off. Imagine you are Tyra Banks, smile and strike a pose.

 

9. Guest stars in the pictures

Sometimes, or often, you want to take a selfie with another person. Maybe you find yourself sitting next to the President, so you want to make sure you make the best selfie. When taking a group photo, always use the front camera so you can see a preview of the picture on the screen. Even though the back one has a better quality it is very difficult to set the right angle without seeing where you are aiming. And you really don't want to cut out the President's face.

 

10. DON'T try too hard

Lastly, when you take a selfie don't try too hard, because the moment you do so, you’ve already failed. Just be yourself and don't be afraid to show your true colours. Just have fun with it.
