Selfies are self-potrait photographs clicked by either digital cameras or phone cameras. Initially popular with younger generation, selfies have gained popularity over the time. In 2012, The Time magazine listed ‘selfie’ as one of the ‘Top 10 Buzzwords’ of that year. The #selfie hashtag is one of the most popular hashtags in the photos sharing social networking site, Instagram. Be it a party, vacation or movie night, selfies are a must. And there are other people like me who believe that, ‘a selfie a day keeps dullness away’.
Here are a few tips for clicking a perfect selfie
The first and the most important tip is to find the right lighting. You may be looking at your best but if you don’t find the right lighting, it can mess up your selfie. Look out for natural light, as it makes you look gorgeous. Stand either inside near the window or outside.
Experiment with angles before you click a selfie. This helps you to find the most flattering angle. Hold your phone higher to your face as it brings out the right proportions.
3. Background Check
Many of us fail to do a background check before clicking a selfie. I’ve seen beautifully composed selfies but the background which has a pile of clothes on the bed spoils it all. So next time, before you click a selfie in your bedroom or bathroom (because bathroom selfies are quite popular) do a thorough background check.
4. Selfie Stick
Invest in a good selfie stick. This helps you take a full body shot. You can easily click selfies of our outfit, shoes and your accessories. It also makes family selfies and groupfies very much easier.
5. Be Yourself
Don’t compel yourself to do poses which you aren’t comfortable just because it is a trend. Some may like to pout while others like to smile. In the process of clicking a perfect selfie, don’t lose your originality. There is nothing more attractive than a confident and an original YOU.
