We all need to take a decent selfie once in a while – whether it’s for our dating profiles, or just because we look hot and need to post a pic to Facebook, it seems that every man/woman and his/her dog is posing and snapping these days.
So, how to rock the perfect selfie? Follow our handy guide…
Have a phone with a front and back camera: This is a necessity to see if that pout is just a little ‘OTT’ or if you have some lunch still caught between your teeth. It is also worth taking your phone cover off – as leaving it on will cause the image to be slightly less clear.
Use good lighting: A motto of photographers everywhere – not full-on sunlight – so every skin pore shines in its glory, or a darkened room where you couldn’t actually tell it’s you. Soft sunlight or a cloudy sky make perfect backdrops.
Use a photo app: Download an app so you can fiddle with your pic to make it perfect. A bit of soft lighting can work wonders, didn’t you know?
Look natural: Don’t go for the turtle – where you stretch your neck too high, or the duckface – where you look constipated and in pain. Relax, take a deep breath and smile.
Go for the angle: Taking a pic straight on is often not the most flattering. Tilt your camera at 45 degrees just like the models do, dahling!
Go slow: Don’t think the snapping away 20 times will result in the best picture. You will just get lots of blurry shots. Instead, go slow and concentrate on positioning.
Have fun: What’s the point of a bit of selfie love unless you are enjoying yourself? Take your time, explore the possibilities and have a laugh.
