Tricks to take the best selfies:
Selfies , those images that we take without the help of others, are very fashionable and, any place and occasion gives to capture these self-photos, which usually do not have the best quality.
If you are a fan of selfies , today we are going to teach you some tricks so that your photos are filled with Like in social networks.
1. Beware of moving your arm
One of the main causes of the bad quality of the selfies, is that we do not worry about stabilizing our arm when holding the camera or smartphone, so the images are moved.
Practice to focus well and leave your arm as still as possible. If it is a group photo, choose who has the longest arm to hold the camera. Take several photos, so choose the best.
2. Use the front camera of your mobile and tablet
Taking the photo blindly, if we use the back camera of the mobile, is almost like playing the lottery. Most mobile phones and tablets have a front camera designed for video conferencing.
Use that camera to take the pictures, since you can see what you are focusing on and take the picture at the right time. The quality is not the same as with the rear camera, but if you are looking for a good photo it will be worth it.
3. Position of the camera over your face
To see you better, place the camera higher than your face (not too much) and slightly tilt your head to the side. Also, try that the image is taken from as far as possible.
With that little trick, your face will look thinner and, you can hide some imperfections. Another tip to see you better, is to have straight shoulders and good posture.
4. Luminosity and background
A selfie in which the light covers those who go inside the photo will not be good at all, so it is recommended to avoid that it directly on your face. The best thing is that the lighting arrives dimly from one side. Natural light is always ideal, but if you are indoors, try to stand on your side to a window or, using a lamp or spotlight that illuminates you from above, never in front or behind.
Everything that what is seen in a photo is important; If you are in a nice place, try not only to see your face, but also the landscape. Do not let anything dirty your selfie; Worry about what is seen behind or on the sides. Surely you do not want to show your messy room or things thrown at home. And if you are going to take a selfie in front of the mirror, check everything that is going to be reflected and build the best possible picture. Oh! It is also worth saying that you notice if the mirror is clean …
5. Take advantage of filters, but do not abuse
Once you have taken your selfie, use some editing application not only to trim and retouch the image, but also to apply a photographic filter that makes it look better. Do not exaggerate with the effects, since it will not look natural.
