Selfie’s have been around for a while now and with new forms of social media popping up they have gotten better. Today,I’m sharing hacks on how to make those selfies one of a kind.
1.KNOW YOUR PHONE CAMERA
There is a general misconception that until you have the most expensive phone, you can’t have the best selfie.That isn’t true the slightest, there are affordable phones with really good cameras all you have to do is understand your phone camera, how it works and how to get the best use out of it.
2. CLEAN YOUR CAMERA
I have been in that situation where my makeup at its best but my selfies were not justifying it.Here’s my question, “have you ever thought to clean your phone camera before?” The solution to your horrible selfies could just be a clean camera.
3. PLAY WITH EXPOSURE
I like my pictures bright and clear unless there is a reason to go dark, like a theme to the picture or shoot. Exposure on phones have gotten a lot easier. All you have to do is tap on your camera screen and drag it to the side (for Samsung) or drag it upwards for iPhone. Have a decent amount of light in your picture will save you time while editing.
As a photographer, I have come to understand how this works and the general importance of focusing your picture.Focus on your face by simply tapping on your screen and take your selfie.
5. CROP AND EDIT
Editing a picture just makes it look 100 times better than the original picture. There are a few editing apps like VSCO, snapseed, aviary among others. There is no right or wrong to editing just go ham as beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
