In this age of Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, it is almost unheard off to travel and not take a selfie. As a result, selfies have become the order of the day, especially during holiday seasons. The only question then becomes—how do I take the coolest selfie?
Well, here are five steps to a super selfie that your social media followers will like and keep liking!
1. Set the timer and burst options on your phone's camera perfectly
If you're traveling alone, it's no longer difficult to take the perfect selfie using your phone. Simply place your phone on a stand and make sure the angle captures the background view perfectly.
Next, enable burst mode and a 10-second timer and run quickly to your desired spot! Pose for the perfect selfie.
2. Catch the background
Sometimes, people want to see more than just your face. Make your selfie interesting by choosing spectacular and picturesque backgrounds. Trust me, when your face blends well with the view behind you, it makes for a perfect selfie!
3. Make sure the lighting is good
You don't want people to squint and strain their eyes trying to make out who or what is in your picture! Make sure there is plenty of natural light in order to infuse brightness and fun into the picture.
However, be careful to avoid too much light, such as posing with the sun in the background or overly shining on your face. This will only distort the photo.
4. Use a mini tripod
Sometimes your arms may interfere disproportionately in your selfie, taking away attention from your face. This is where a tripod is useful—it frees your hands and enables you to strike more natural poses.
5. Get a phone with the latest selfie technology
If your budget permits, it could be beneficial to get the latest phone with awesome photography and camera features, such as wide selfie and animated selfie functions. This will make selfie taking even more fun!
Try these tips and soon, your followers will be remarking on your super travel selfies.
