6 Modeling Tips On Capturing The Perfect Selfie
As a promotional model, part of your job will be posting on social media for the brand and yourself. If you have a good social media following, the company might pay you more if you broadcast to your own followers in addition to theirs, so it’s imperative that you learn to take good selfies! And it’s also good self-promotion for yourself so that companies can see your capability and status on social media. Although you might think you already know how to take selfies, there are certain things you should take into account to capture the perfect selfie! Here are some tips to help you:
- The Right Angle
It’s all about getting the right angle when taking a selfie. Try tilting your head at an angle, which will help highlight your cheekbones, while making your eyes look bigger to give off cool vibes.
- The Right Light
Lighting is important with any pictures you take and especially true with selfies since many smartphone front cameras aren’t always the best when it comes to lightening. Having the right light will make your skin look great and your hair shiny. Try taking the selfie next to a window or going outside to benefit from the natural light.
- Have A Signature Pose
Practice your poses so that you can have your own signature pose. When you feel confident, then you’ll look great and so will your selfie.
- Use An App
To perfect your selfie, use a photo app. With so many on the market, it’s easy to find your go-to one, where you can easily create filters, and more. Some even let you remove things like blemishes, marks and let you enhance your skin and more. Just make sure that you don’t over do it with the editing or else you’ll look fake. It’s okay to fix a few things or enhance your selfie, but try to keep realistic at the same time.
- Create movement
To make it seem as if there’s a breeze, use a fan a couple of feet away so that it creates a sort of glamorous movement for your hair like in magazines!
