5 Tips For Taking Perfect Selfies

Want to get more likes on the selfies you post on Instagram and Facebook?

Taking the perfect selfie is no less than an art form especially when anyone and everyone with a smartphone is taking one.

Here are some tips to consider….

Choose Good lighting

Just like any other photograph, selecting the right kind of lighting can play a major role in enhancing your selfie.
For best results, take the selfie outdoors in natural light or near a brightly lit window, if you’re indoors.
Placing the light source in front of you can help soften your facial features.
Don’t use a front flash if your phone has one.

Don’t overdo the pout

Besides the fact that not everyone can carry it, pouting has been done to death. Strike an interesting or even a whacky pose but avoid this cliche.

Use the right filters

Instagram and other photo apps offer a set of filters (or effects) that can be applied to enhance your selfie. Filters can add an interesting touch to your selfie, hide unwanted elements and set a mood.

Opt for the right angle

For best results, take the selfie from an angle that’s a little higher than your line of vision. Everyone has a good ’side’ and the key is to highlight that.
Take multiple selfies from different angle and choose the one that’s the most flattering.

Check your surroundings

No one likes a shabby background. Don’t let people see your messy room.
Avoid taking selfies in the bathroom in front of the mirror unless you want to flaunt your body.
