Smart hacks for those perfect seflies

Add impact to your shots with some creativity and the right camera phone

One of the top “selfie-addict” nation in the world, the Pinoy certainly has made “selfie” into an art form. We take selfies as a way to capture and store unforgettable moments. But while everyone with a smartphone can make one, how do you capture selfies that stand out?

Stunning selfies are a combination of artful poses, perfect lighting, and maybe some enhancements from your camera apps. Because a selfie is a form of self-expression, it is necessary to keep your creative juices flowing while keeping some professional techniques in mind.

Here are some tips on combining techniques with the power of your self-expression:

1. Look for your best angle

Before snapping a photo of yourself, turn your head or shoulder slightly to the left and then to the right. This lets you find out which angle works best for you. Emphasize your jawline as much as possible by raising the camera slightly above you. Aside from putting emphasis on your jaws, this technique allows your eyes to show their brilliance.

2. Go for the active shot

A photo that shows you doing something is more interesting than a plain shot. This could be a travel selfie, or a photo of yourself doing a hobby.

3. Rule of thirds

The rule of thirds is standard for every photographer, and it still applies to your selfies. Instead of having your face right at the center of the photo, try putting your face at the top left or top right of your selfie for more balanced composition.

When taking full body shots, putting yourself near the edge of the frame makes for a more dramatic shot.

4. Accessories and props

Your selfies are the perfect opportunity to show the world how your brow game is on fleek. If you want to flaunt that OOTD, a shot in front of the mirror is still the best way to do it.

You’ll also need the right camera phone if you want your photogenic self to shine through in every picture.

The OPPO F1s is a great pick for the needs of every selfie lover. Thanks to an impressive 16-megapixel front-facing camera equipped with a 1/3.1-inch sensor and a wide f/2.0 aperture, the F1s captures very clear selfies even in less than ideal lighting conditions.

In addition to the hardware, the OPPO “selfie expert” comes with the Beautify 4.0 app that smoothens out those unwanted blemishes, as well as eight filters you can apply to add mood to your shots.

“While selfies give you much room for self-expression, having the right tool complements your flow of creative juices. It also lets you achieve your desired photos. That is what the OPPO F1s promises and delivers,” said OPPO Philippines Marketing Brand Manager Stephen Cheng.
