Did you know that more than 1 Million selfies are taken each day? It has become our second nature to click a snap of ourself at every walking/ talking moment (Almost). Be it to show off our new lipstick or that hour long work out sessions we are constantly clicking away and updating our social media accounts. We all are familiar with the journey of snapping 5-10-15 selfies, editing and uploading. So today I am going to share my tips & tricks to get the perfect selfie!
For any photography, lighting it very important. If you want clear, crisp and vibrant colours make sure to click a selfie facing the light. Standing near a window will get you the best light. If you want soft and mysterious pictures you can opt for the backlit look, facing away from the light.
For some the Vertical (Portrait) angle works and for some the Horizontal (Landscape) angle. Experiment to find out which one works best for you. Also make sure to extend your arm out and to hold your camera a little above your face, this angle will make your eye appear bigger. Do try out various profiles to see which suits your face type. The 3/4 face angle looks great of everyone.
Besides your pout/ smile pose there is so much more than you can do, especially when you are clicking pictures with your friends and loved ones. So don’t forget to get a little crazy and try out various poses.
There are so many filters available to add that instant oomp to your clicks. Try each one out to see which works with your selfie. My favourite is filter is “Valencia”
Good Camera Phone:
Last but not the least, it is essential to have a good camera phone. Trust me no amount of filters or lighting will make your selfie appear good if the camera on your phone isn’t nice. One such phone which is excellent at clicking selfie (and more) is the New Asus ZenFone Selfie. It comes with dual 13 megapixel front & rear camera. It also has real tone led flash which will make taking selfies in the dark a cake walk. Another fabulous feature that this phone has is 0.3s Laser Ultra Fast Auto-Focus, so every selfie will come out crips and clear. Now coming to my favourite part about this phone, the selfie panorama mode. This will insure an outlook of up to 140 degrees and ensure that everything and everyone is a part of your click!
