Selfie Mistakes to Avoid

Let’s face it ladies – who doesn’t like a good selfie from time to time? After all, you can never know what the picture you take today can do for you in future. However, it is a fact that as you scroll through the selfies that you have taken the past few days, there are a few that you would love to delete without letting anyone see them.

Taking a Selfie in the Dark

The first rule to take a selfie is to take it in proper lighting. The right kind of lighting can be the difference between taking just a selfie and taking one that can feature on a magazine cover.

Make sure you take a selfie using natural light compared to artificial lighting. Experts have made a post about the best way to get light into the image.

Applying Too Many Filters

The first time we learn to use image filters, we go ahead and use as many filters as we can. Using too many filters makes it hard for you to achieve the perfect image. You get to blur the face and add so many effects that distort the picture.

Instead, use one or two filters to make the image look professional.

Not Applying a Filter

There is no problem editing an image before you use it. However, you end up with a raw image when you fail to use a filter. Try and use the blur tool, or lightening aspect to make the image much better.

Ignoring the Flash App

If you aren’t near natural light, you need to make sure you set up everything to get the image right. Use the front flash app to light up the place you are sitting so that you can get a perfect image. It won’t be a perfect picture, but you will at least get something out of it.

Taking Just One Selfie

When taking selfies, more is always better. The best selfie is all about taking as many photos as possible. Take tens of selfies, even hundreds and choose the best one from what you have. Tilt your head in different directions and change the angle of the camera so that you get a different perspective for each shot.

Making a Funny Face

While taking a selfie, you don’t need to look weird. Yes, your friends will find something to laugh about, but the image won’t be a part of your collection. Instead, show confidence and a relaxed expression at all times.
