The Perfect Selfie...
bY MOJIsOLa aLLeN When taking a picture with an amazing photographer, all it takes is one or two snaps to get the shot but selfies are different. one was hopeless at taking selfies until my colleague, Ruky salako pointed how horrible one was, taking 20 or more to get one that’s usable. after a few lessons or two, we now post with no regrets. Really looking to nail your next close-up, here’s what to keep in mind... FinD your ‘’low 45’’ hold the camera at a low 45-degree angle instead of at eye level. it’s surprisingly flattering because it shows off your jawline. boost contrast insteaD oF Filtering i’m not a fan of filters or airbrushing, why not be you? To boost your selfie game, pump up the contrast to make it look sharper. let there be light lighting is the secret to a good selfie. Find your best light, it makes or breaks any picture. one now has a luMee case on my phone and it never comes off! KeeP it real smile and relax! if it looks weird or forced, think of something funny to make yourself actually laugh out loud. works for some of us. show your Personality we’re all on insta to show the world a little piece of ourselves, so don’t over think/do things. Be authentic and have fun with it!
