Selfies are the favorite photos of teenagers, but contrary to what it may seem, it is not a recent fad. The first dates from 1839 and was made in Philadelphia by a pioneer named Robert Cornelius. And is that take a selfie It is something totally everyday, and doing it well requires a certain skill. If you want to know how to take selfies that stand out and do not go unnoticed, you just have to keep reading.
How to do well in selfies
First of all, we are going to give some tips that are basic, but usually go unnoticed. Start by cleaning the front camera lens. A tissue or if you have nothing on hand, the edge of your shirt. The reason is simple, when we speak we stick our ear to the camera and it is always left with remains. The result is that our selfie appears with a layer of fog that does not make a good impression.
Unless you use a phone whose front camera does the effect bokeh, blurred or blurred, the fund takes on special relevance. If you take a selfie in the bathroom, first mistake, it is common for rolls of toilet paper or towels to come out, even worse things. Go outside and take your selfie in natural light, which will make you stand out more. Sites such as elevators, those already named bathrooms or, ultimately, those in which there is not enough light, have to be discarded.
If you take a selfie, let it be for something. That is, you have found a friendship and you want to immortalize the moment. You have an object behind you that you want to portray for posterity, from the Eiffel Tower to the walls of Lugo, whatever. But taking a selfie for taking it … Then it is very common to see profiles on social networks where that person only contributes selfies, generally of poor quality and with their snouts well placed. Don’t you think it’s something out of date and certainly ridiculous?
Very important, in your outdoor selfie you will never have the sun behind you. Simply because you will see the outline and nothing else, your face will be black. So the sun face or side. Try to be natural, you will come out much better than trying to emulate a pose copied from some influence. Ultimately, you want to portray yourself as you are.
Very important, if we point with our mobile from below, as it appears in the photo that illustrates this article, we have a good chance of not turning out very well. Simply because our features are slightly enlarged, and we can give bad results. That double chin will be more noticeable. Better to do it from above or from the front. The question is to go testing.
When it comes to taking a selfie, a lot better to shoot in burst format. That is, leave your finger on the button and let the device take several images in a row. With this you will be able to take a good photo, or even make a collage with several. Extra tip: to make collages we recommend the Befunky app, available at iOS Y Android and totally free.
Taking a selfie is not enough and that’s it. You always have the possibility to edit the photo to give it that special touch. Pass it to B / W, sepia, fill it with color, apply some filters, highlight some part, put a phrase. You have a good amount of free editing apps and that give very good results. We recommend Snapseed, VSCO Cam or Afterlight. Even the Instagram editing tool is very comprehensive.
Share, if you want
Taking a selfie to share is a good idea. So your friends and family They can see how you are and how you feel. But remember, do it with those selfies that you think “have something to say.” What we have talked about in the first point is very important. Nothing worse than a profile full of nondescript selfies. They are boring, tiresome and are ultimately worthless material.
Now that you know how to take a selfie And that this goes well, it’s time to experiment and boost your creativity. From that 1839 selfie to today, there are millions of them circulating.
