New Generation: 4 Easy Tips to Take an Artistic Selfie

Have you ever taken a selfie? Were you disappointed with the results? If so, you aren’t alone. Believe it or not, taking a selfie may not be as easy as you thought it would be. If you are young, this likely isn’t an issue. For everyone else, though, a few tips can be beneficial.

There are several types of selfies you can take – you can choose an up-close shot or take pictures from a distance to show emotion or an entire scene. It’s often difficult to find all the small tricks and tips to get an amazing selfie each time. For example, do you know how to hold your phone? Did you know you must take time of the day into consideration? Keep reading for some helpful tips to get the perfect selfie every time.

Holding the Phone
Almost everyone has tried to take a selfie in the past. They are fun. However, front-facing photos can also be rather off-putting if you don’t know what you are doing. There are a few ways to try holding your phone to get the best results.

Angle Upward 45 Degrees
In the past decade, selfies have become a popular way to capture photos with your phone. Most times, the pictures turned out awkward and only those who practiced this took good selfies. The first tip is to raise your arm to an angle of 45-degrees to capture the shot. You will find this is going to be a winner if you retry the shot. An advantage offered by this is that you can capture everyone in a flattering picture.

You can also take a shot by tilting your head up slightly. In fact, this is a good way to take a selfie using your phone. However, the angle is also going to focus on your forehead, which will make it bigger and somewhat distorted. It could be helpful for you to try out different angles besides the traditional upward one. This is a good option if you are at a concert.

Use the Back Camera on Your Phone
Modern phones have higher quality rear-facing cameras than front-facing ones. Usually, the front camera is going to have a lower resolution than the rear camera. The challenge here is that you must guess the right position on your phone.

A pro tip you can use is to hold your phone next to a mirror or even a dark computer screen to see the selfie’s reflection. You can then take the picture by pressing the volume button or by using voice commands.

Look Up While Facing the Camera
Are you really getting the best pose? If you aren’t sure, try to tilt your head slightly to achieve a more flattering look. Another step is to raise your eyebrows slightly to help make your eyes appear more defined and larger. The last step is to look down and think about something that makes you smile.

If your image appears dull, you should change the angle. When you are trying to capture a picture straight on, you should slightly tilt your head. You can also show action in your shot by turning your head and taking a side picture from your shoulder.

Getting the Perfect Selfie
As you can see, there are several tips you can use to help perfect your selfie. Keep these in mind to achieve the best shot possible and get the amazing selfies that you want and need. Being informed and knowing how to capture the perfect selfie will help you get the perfect picture that you want.
