Chinese New Year is just around the corner, so you know what that means - our social media feeds are going to be chock-full of Chinese New Year content, such as #OOTDs, selfies, family group photos and food pictures. 

So how can you make your content stand out from the feed when everyone else is posting similar things? Below, we have 5 tips on how to take the usual Chinese New Year photos in a non-boring way that’ll make your feed so much more fun and interesting to look at. FYI, all the photos below are taken with the new Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G!

Read on for our tips on how to make your social media content stand out this Chinese New Year!

#1 Make use of your mirror

The mirror selfie trend is here to stay, and there are so many ways you can do this. Take a candid as you’re getting ready or use it to give your followers a glimpse of how you’ve decorated your place for Chinese New Year. And if you have family members who are always down for some fun, rope them into the mirror selfie with you! Yes, even Ah Ma. 

#2 Use CNY decor as props

Mandarin oranges, angpows, and even pussywillow - anything can be a prop if you just think out of the box. And you don’t necessarily have to hold these props. Instead, have them in the background or foreground to create interesting shadows and play with depth. 

#3 Show moments of authenticity

Judging by social media trends these days, it seems like intentionally posed photos are out and candid shots are in. We can see why - these snaps feel more authentic and make your followers feel like they were there with you. Have a dedicated friend or IG boyfriend snap away while you’re enjoying the festivities, whether you’re celebrating your first ban luck or simply walking around Chinatown! 

#4 Cop your favourite celeb couple

Don’t be fooled by the pocket-friendly size of Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G - it actually packs the punch of a pro-grade camera setup, giving you crisp photos of the highest quality. Yes, even when the image is backlit!Photo from GirlStyle Singapore

A couple OOTD where the both of you are standing stiff in front of a plain wall? Yawn, boring. Instead, look to some of your favourite celebrities who have done magazine photoshoots as a couple, such as Justin and Hailey Bieber or Rain and Kim Tae Hee. From their poses to their expressions, cop their look for better photos of you and bae! 

#5 Capture your Lo Hei toss from two POVs

If you didn’t post about your Lo Hei toss on Instagram Stories, did you even Lo Hei? This year, level up your Lo Hei content with the dual recording function of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G. It captures footage from both front and back cameras at the same time, which means you get to capture the chaotic and boisterous tradition from two different angles - one of yourself, and one of what you’re seeing. Just think of the different forms of content and memes you can generate with this!
