A selfie can be termed as a good replacement to begging others for taking one good picture of you for which you just have to satisfy yourself. But this doesn’t make taking selfies an easier task as you need to look at several factors which help you get the ‘Perfect Selfie.”
Be it a Snapchat story or just a picture for the Instagram, this world is obsessed with selfies. If you look at the selfies of Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian and think of yourself inferior to them, then you need to learn these skills which can bring your selfies from 3-4 to 9-10 in the ratings.
The best ever light for the perfect selfie is the natural sunlight. No other lighting can give an as smooth result as in the natural light. So take the selfies in the day time when you can take full advantage of the sunlight. People sometimes think of fluorescent tube lights as a good source of light for clicking photos but the results are always disappointing. But the thing is that the moments are not dependent on time and you can have the need to click a selfie at any time of the day. In that case, there no other option than to click it in a soft light.
Tip: Placing a burning candle on the table and clicking the selfie with appropriate shadows can deliver amazing results. The flash of the camera distorts your expressions resulting in bad selfies.
If the above tip didn’t work for you, you can try filters which can illuminate and add different colors to your photos. Numerous third party apps for adding life to your photos are available online. One of the finest options in the list is the Selfie Camera app which helps you edit your photos in a professional way. Other options include Aviary and Snapseed etc.
Last but not the least is the placement of your camera. If you have a bulkier face, then you obviously have to place your face in such a direction that it looks thin. For that, move the camera in different directions until you get the right spot.
Tip: Place your camera slightly above your face so that your face needs just a bit of the lift up.
