Here are the four tips!

1. Lighting
Don't ignore the difference lighting can make to your pictures. There's a reason why it became so popular!

Under dark lightings or severely warm lightings, you will appreciate the difference it makes. This add-on will come in handy for night events and dark settings.

When choosing a lighting device, there are 2 things to consider:
a) Temperature: Best if you can switch between warm (orange) & cool (white) lightings.
b) Light Intensity: Adjust from low light intensity to high light intensity.

2. Self-Timer
A timer will buffer you time to look natural instead of the freeze-up smile. Also, you don't need to hold the camera to take a selfie. Place it somewhere and turn the timer on, 3 seconds, 5 seconds or 10 seconds. This way you can change up your selfie game.

Take this casual at-home-messy-look for an example. With proper lighting, timer and props, you look like a fun young adult instead of looking like an Aunty with the same hair and top.

3. Props
You need props to make your selfies look acceptable on your social media feed. Imagine 10 selfies that look the same; you can hardly see the background!

A Coffee Cup?

Anything can be your prop, and it can also make you feel less awkward when you ask someone to take a picture for you.

4. Photography Apps help you fix the flaws!
