Top 5 Tips for the Perfect Selfie

Selfies have been around for a long time and there are thousands of them out there. How do you stand out against all those other selfies? Here are 5 tips that help you do that.

Tip #1: Use Interesting Backgrounds Or Items

Most people’s selfie just features themselves and nothing else. Why not spice up your selfie game by having an interesting background or an interesting item? That way people would be looking forward to your next selfie, thinking what new and interesting thing would appear.

Tip #2: Outdoor Selfies

Sometimes when we are out and we feel like taking a selfie, we tend to forget an important rule of photography- Never have the sun shine directly into your face. This creates extremely harsh and unflattering shadows on your face.

Instead, have the sun be behind you. That way, you could have a softer light on your face and could even have a little glowing halo around you.

Tip #3: Experiment with Angles

Angles are key to making you look great. Selfies taken using different angles could make you look taller and curvier. It could also make your face look better. The key is to try different positions and see which looks the best. Tilt your head to the left, right, up, down. Experiment!

Tip #4: Crop Perfect

The best selfies are those who take note of basic principals of photography. By cropping your images, you could emphasize the most flattering features of you and also hide unwanted portions like a sudden photobomber. You can also crop to make your images follow the Rule of Third.

Tip #5: Have Great Lighting

The most import thing of a good selfie is having the right lighting. Light that is too bright can create some harsh shadows on the face. With the right amount of light from the right direction, you can have stunning selfies.

When indoors, try to take your selfie near the window. The sunlight would create a soft glow on your face and make is look beautiful.Try to avoid having strong overhead light as it may cast a down shadow on your face.

The worst kind of lighting you can use is that of a flash. The sudden flash of light creates a harsh white light that causes your face to be unevenly lit. Try to find a place that has a consistent light.


Alternatively, you could use a LED Selfie Phone Case. It has lights all around the case to give you an evenly lit face. It would make your selfie look like a professional took it.
