As the selfie capital of the world, we Filipinos should take pride of our selfies, here are some essential tricks that you should know and practice so that you can be on your way to awesome selfies!
- Do a Background Check
When you take a selfie, people won’t just see your face but even your background so if you have a mountain of used clothes or unmade bed at your back, behold…judgmental comments are coming! Selfies during travels are a different story though because photobombers are inevitable but at least make sure they don’t cover the view or be an extrovert and just invite them for a groufie!
- Follow the Light
Take this advice literally. Swear. Literally. Find a light brighter than your best friend’s personality and let it highlight your pretty face! Go out, walk towards the window, or if you can’t follow the light, say “Let there be light” and just open the lampshade nearest you!
- Work Your Angles
Be honest, we all know by now you have taken thousands of selfies and should have somehow identified which is your best angle. (Well just in case you haven’t, just check your profile and check which one had the most likes!) You may have the most perfect eyes, nose, cheekbones, lips, chin, and so on and so forth, but projection beats perfection any day. So snap, snap, snap, and work it, girl!
- Take Shotsssss
Yes, that’s plural because we really mean A LOT. There’s nothing wrong with having options, right? Especially if you feel that 1 like from your crush = one percent higher at chance meter. So do it, create shots that vary in angle, lighting, or background (or even outfit!) In case you will have a difficult time choosing, what are best friends for?
- Grab the Awesome Companion
After it has all been said and done, what is projection, perfection without an awesome companion? Let’s face reality, the clearer the selfies, the higher the likes. Right? Tips 1 to 4 can get 200 likes but with tip #5, expect double (as long as you also followed the first 4.)
