5 Selfie Ideas For Guys Na Hindi Marunong Mag-Selfie
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.

We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
