When you think about selfies, the words “low-quality” or “awkward” might come to mind. Normal lang yan, nakakaself-conscious talaga minsan. After all, no one will find it amusing to scroll through a feed with nothing to show off but badly-taken selfie shots.
Still, don’t underestimate the power of a good selfie. When the time comes that you’ve got no one to take your photo for you, kailangan maging strong and independent kung gusto mo ng #content. Below, we’re listing down some Candy Rookie-approved tips for taking the best selfies.
Play with a prop.
Make your shot less awkward by interacting with whatever prop you have on you. Accessories like hats or necklaces come in handy, so take advantage of what you have and make your selfie more dynamic.
Cover a part of your face.
Keep it cool (and mysterious, naks) and play around with angles by covering parts of your face. Cover an eye or your mouth with your hand and strike an artsy pose.
Take a mirror selfie.
Walang kukuha ng full-body shot ng porma mo today? TYG mirror selfies are having a moment in the Insta realm. Puwede rin siyang pang subtle flex ng bago mong phone case, LOL.
Find your light.
Look for a spot with the best lighting and play around with shadows. With the right source of light, a mere selfie can transform into a work of art.
Take it from a lower angle.
Shoot your (selfie) shot from a lower angle, para maiba! It’ll give you fresh options and gives you a chance to highlight your jawline, too.
