Lightning is Important
Lighting is everything in every picture. Make sure you have enough of natural light in your picture. Spare yourself from editing the pictures using apps and softwares. It is a pain. Natural light looks the best on any pictures and is better then any artificial colours and edits. It doesn’t matter if you have a good camera or not. All you need is enough lighting and a perfect environment.
Know when to use flash
Many phones don’t have a flash option for front facing camera. So what would you do when you are in a dark environment? How would you click a selfie? Some apps like Snapchat have an option on their top right, which enable front facing flash. On enabling it, it bursts a bubble of white light on your face which does destroy the picture as it causes grains to appear. But at least your face is visible.
You have got to smile like you mean it. Don’t make a grin face. Don’t make I book like you’re being forced to pose for it. Always smile like you are genuinely happy to see the camera. Actually, you should go with the situation. Pose crazy, if you’re going crazy.
Make sure that your selfie does not look unnatural. However, if you edit your picture too much, you might end up creating something unnatural. Only touch up on the required areas. Even if you are using a filter, use it at minimum capacity.
Don’t overdo it
Don’t try too hard to get a good selfie. It’s all about capturing a moment and you can only do so when you naturally feel like clicking a picture. The selfies are those who come naturally to you. It’s better if you don’t work too hard for it.
