1. Have good lighting
One important factor when it comes to taking selfies is lighting. Natural lighting will be your best bet, however, if that’s not an option, good lighting will do. Take your selfies near light sources such as windows, or step outside as well for a breath of fresh air. Get as much light as you can in dark areas, such as lamps, street lights, and the like.
2. Take note of the sunlight
While natural light is important, it’s also vital to remember to have the sunlight behind you when taking photos. Facing the sun in your selfie would make your photos look washed out and unnatural, taking away the details in your photo. Have the sun surround you behind instead or block it with your head; it’ll brighten up your photo and even create a glowing effect around you.
3. Pick an interesting background
Having a good background for your photos will definitely up your selfie game. A messy background will take away the attention from your face which, well, loses the point of posting a selfie. Take your selfies against plain colored walls, or ones with graffiti, or anything that will make you stand out.
4. Practice your angles or your smartphone’s angle
Experiment with angles until you end up with the one that highlights your facial details. Some people already know the angles that make them look good but fret not, you can always practice until you find the one you’re most comfortable in. If angling your face isn’t your thing, then take note of your smartphone’s angle instead; reposition your phone so that you don’t end up with a full-on straight selfie shot.
5. Take advantage of the V15 Pro’s portrait lighting modes
The V15 Pro has portrait lighting modes to help you pick the best lighting condition for your selfies. One of our favorite lighting mode in the V15 Pro is the rainbow light mode, which gives selfies a lens flare effect.
6. Use the live photos feature
Live photos are a cool way to create your very own gif or live photo without having to take multiple succeeding shots of yourself. Live photos run about 3 seconds each, and you definitely can do numerous creative poses with this mode.
7. Use the AI Beauty mode
Don’t be afraid to use the AI beauty mode! Sure, there are moments when the beauty mode goes overboard but it can all be adjusted in the settings. It can smoothen your skin, erase your blemishes, and still make give you a realistic selfie.
8. Utilize the filters
While the V15 Pro’s selfie camera is impressive, you can always use filters to give your photos an extra oomph. Filters can make your photos look vibrant, or perhaps make it look classic in black & white should you wish to do so.
9. Add AR stickers
Stickers are a fun way to add some creativity to your shots! You won’t need to download an entirely different app just for them as the V15 Pro has its own AR stickers mode. It has a ton of options, surely you’ll find one or a couple that’ll best express yourself.
10. Relax and enjoy!
Most importantly, relax and enjoy when you take your selfies! The point of taking a selfie is feeling confident and having fun at the moment. Loosen up, smile or make faces or do your favorite expression — anything goes. It’s your selfie, after all.
