Capture the best photo every time with these selfie tips and tricks.
You’ve been wearing sweatpants for a year, and you finally took the time to dress yourself up. You’re FEELING YOURSELF. You go to take a photo . . . terrible. You need some selfie tips.
Sometimes, getting the perfect selfie is a task that we simply don’t have time for. That’s why we created this guide full of selfie tips so you can capture the best photo!
It’s super common for photos to not turn out the way we want them to, but with these selfie tips, we hope that you learn the best techniques to implement in order to love more of your photos!
Lighting is Everything
The most important factor when it comes to taking amazing pictures of yourself is lighting. The best lighting for pictures is natural lighting, so standing (or sitting) in front of a window is your best bet. Try to avoid taking photos in direct sunlight and definitely avoid shadows–a soft bright light is best. If you need to take photos at night or if the natural light just doesn’t cut it, purchase a ring light and take your photos using that. It’s the next best thing!
Know Your Angles
Even supermodels have a ‘good side!’ Practice your angles and determine which poses make you feel the most comfortable, confident, and the most YOU!
Flip Your Photos
Have you ever taken a bunch of selfies and thought ‘this doesn’t even look like me’? That’s because when you take a selfie, the camera flips your image making your face look completely different. Go through your camera roll and flip your image and we guarantee you’ll like them more! This is also why most people like the photos they take on Snapchat more than their camera roll–because snapchat doesn’t flip your photo.
Take Several Photos
Don't get discouraged if you’re not a one-shot wonder. Play with different poses and expressions and take lots and lots (and lots) of photos! The more you take, the better the chances are that you’ll find one (or more) that you love.
Natural is Best
You’re beautiful just the way you are! Avoid over-editing and over-posing at all costs.
The most beautiful thing about a person is their self love and confidence, and that radiates through the camera! The best photo taking tip we have is to just be confident and let yourself shine.
