HOW TO TAKE AN AMAAAZING SELFIE
People are ALWAYS asking us how to take the perfect selfie, so here we are! We’re going to school you in the art of the selfie.
STEP 1: GET LIT!
Lighting is EVERYTHING when taking a selfie. Let’s emphasize on EVERYTHING. Rule of thumb – natural light is the best light. If you’re outdoors, make sure the sun is directly behind your head, if not, then the lighting will be too harsh. If you’re indoors, find an open window, let the light in, and snap away!
STEP 2: KNOW YOUR ANGLES
Experiment with different angles to find the ones that give you the result you want. Once you find your angles, you’re gold! There’s not really much to this; just grab your camera and look straight. Start turning your head (left, right, up, down) and snap away; documenting each movement. Also try moving the hand holding your camera in different angles as well. We promise, after a few series of snaps, you’ll find the best mix that works for you!
STEP 3: FILTERS AND THINGS
As amazing and fun filters and editing your pictures are, don’t over do it! You want your selfie to look natural, rather than overly edited and fake. Sure, a little ‘Valencia’ never hurt nobody, but no need to Valencia and Juno, while also giving yourself a temporary lip plump, nose job, etc. You’re beautiful; embrace it!
STEP 4: HAVE FUN
The last and most important tip requires absolutely no effort: Have fun!! Selfies are supposed to be fun and light hearted, so don’t take them too seriously, or else it will really show in the pictures (and from an outsiders perspective, it won’t be good). So really, be candid, be happy (like, really happy not fake happy) and have fun!!!
