7 Tips for Taking Great Selfies

Most people will have taken a selfie sometime or other.

Its hard no too, selfies are great for capturing great moments in life.

Click and share that’s how easy it is, or is it?

Taking a selfie is easy, but taking a good selfie that’s flattering isn’t.

So how do celebrities and fashion blogger take gorgeous selfies?

Here are some tips for you to snap that gorgeous picture of YOU:

1. Lighting

Lighting is a very important for any photo.

Bad lighting will ruin even the most beautiful of scenes.

Jeniffer Lopez recently shared her secret for taking selfies with InStyle; JLo says “turn around in a circle until you find the best lighting before taking your photo.”

And she definitely knows what she’s talking about.

2. Know Your Angles

Just as with lighting, finding the right angle for a situation is crucial.

You can stick to taking a snap from a high angle, but play around a little and you might find something better.

Think about it in terms of eye level, low or high.

Move your camera around to see with looks best.

3. Beaware of Your Background

A lot of people make the mistake of not taking notice of the background.

You want a good, clear background.

This will help you pop out more in the photo.

Having a cluttered or something with too many details will ruin the shot.

4. Squinching

This will help you to be more photogenic.

Squinching is a combination of squinting and pinching.

Tighten your eyes and slightly relax the top lid, let the lower lid do the work.

Practice this and find a good midpoint between eyes wide open and squinting.

5. Tilting your head

A classic when it comes to selfies and with good reason.

Tilting your head will help highlight your cheek bones and make your eyes look bigger.

And it will give your selfie a more adorable look.

6. Extend Your Neck Forward

Get rid of any evidence of a double chin by extending your neck forward towards the camera.

This will help you accentuate your jaw line and improve the outcome of the photo.

7. Use Filters

Selfies are ultimately all about having fun with a self-portrait-like photo.

So experiment with different filters and have fun with it.
