Take A Selfie Like A Supermodel
Selfies: We’ve all heard of them. They basically define our current generation. If you’ve never taken a selfie, you must be commended for that self-control! Kudos to you. The rest of us, however, are certainly guilty of taking a selfie or two or 10,000. There is nothing wrong with wanting to get the best selfie you can possibly achieve.
It can be a huge confidence boost, something that is particularly necessary at the moment with mental health struggles affecting millions around the world. However, there is also the issue of people editing their selfies to the point where their picture no longer looks like themselves. This is a no-no! Selfies should make you feel proud of the person you are, not make you want to edit yourself out of all recognition. With that in mind, we’re going to be looking at ways that you can take a selfie just like the supermodels in a natural way. No more changing who you are because you are just too beautiful for that! Let’s get started.
This is a rule that applies to all forms of photography, and the selfie is no exception. Lighting is one of the most important elements of any photograph, and it can be tricky to get it just right. Make it too bright and you run the risk of the always-irritating lens glare or obscuring your features. If it's too dark, you could lose all visibility or cast some unwanted shadows. Making sure you get the light just right is essential to a good selfie. There are a few ways you can make sure that the lighting in your selfie doesn’t become a problem. Ensuring that the light source in your picture is coming from in front of you rather than behind you is a must. You can also try to take your selfies in a room with good lighting or attain some natural light.
Again, getting the right angle is something that can be considered a regular photography skill as well as something that is useful when taking selfies. This doesn’t just mean getting the camera angle right but also the angle of yourself. Depending on your personal preference with your look, you might have a side that you feel represents you better. Making sure you get the angle that is right for you is another great way to get that supermodel-style selfie.
Everyone knows that a selfie is a great time to practice those posing skills! No matter what kind of look you are going for, striking a pose can be a fun way to help yourself to feel more confident. Whether it is a simple smile, a silly expression or that infamous duck pout, the more confident you feel about yourself, the more this will come through in your selfie. The supermodels of the world are often known for their signature selfies, so make the effort to come up with your own unique pose that can become a staple of your own. Pick your pose and flaunt it with style!
Through the Looking Glass
If you feel like your outfit is on point or you are looking to raise your posing game, a mirror selfie may be the way to go. By using a mirror to take your selfie, you can elevate your photo to the next level. Not only do you get a full body shot, which greatly increases the poses that are available to you, but you can also get a much better handle on the aim of the shot. Don’t forget, mirrors are your friend!
A Family Affair
The title “selfie” does not necessarily mean that you can only take pictures of yourself. Group selfies are a great way to make lasting memories with your friends and families, so grab a couple of your besties or your mom and dad and create some super selfies together!
Pets are Besties, Too
Similar to your family and friends, there is nothing stopping you from taking selfies with your beloved pets. Pose with your puppy or get cute with your cat, but whatever you do, make sure that your pet is actually happy about taking pictures with you!
Last but certainly not least, have fun with it! The more relaxed and laid-back you are, the more this will come through in your photo. Whether you are posing alone or with others, have some fun while snapping those selfies!
