How to be a #SelfieExpert

Saturday, February 20, 2016

Our generation has been thoroughly addicted in taking selfies, from the moment we wake up until before we hit the sheets, we're actually trying to grasp a perfect selfie to upload. But even though its been a constant craze and unending must-do, we all still need a gist of how all of your idols do that selfie goals. Hear it from me:

Lighting is our Best Friend
There is no perfect place for taking selfies, I presume. Proper lighting will always do the trick. I suggest taking selfies in natural sunlight, especially during the golden hour (just before sunset) so as to get your best glowing selfie!

On the other side,  it is vital to know some tricks when poor lighting comes in: neutralize the flash of your cameras by holding a white towel near your face! (I actually discovered it when my Art Studies professor made us do it)


As technology advances, so do we. We can't deny that it's not always a good hair and skin day for us. If you want to brighten your skin a bit or add on filters... use photo editors and applications that will emphasize your photo to your heart's content. Applications like VSCO and PHOTOSHOP often help correct the color scheme and backlight, do some picture aesthetics, and the like.

I, for one, have always used VSCO & Afterlight. My favorite filters are S3, HB1, and A6.

Express yourself and do something unique or catchy.

Just as your flawless idols and bloggers do it, you don't have to literally copy their styles and poses. Rather, do something uniquely you. By doing so, you'll be able to discover more about yourself and be able to create your own branding.

If you're into sports, try taking a selfie while surfing or skating! If not, try to do something truly different and at the same time, worthy of your time.
Smile. Frown. Pout.

Experiment on Angles

Selfies are meant to be uploaded and share that is why you need to look your best! You can't just upload the same old poses that you always do or capture the same old angles of your face. Learn to experiment and have fun behind the camera. Never be afraid to look ridiculous or wacky - it's part of the fun that selfies brought to us. Knowing when to look glamorous and when to look just happy-go-lucky is a big step for us to actually love ourselves more.

Try to tilt your head from left to right to see where you'd look best!


Some of us might not always find the right lighting, and most of the time we actually spend hours of trying to choose and enhance our photos but end up deleting all of it. All of those tips will not work if we have poor cameras, right? It is critical that we invest on a camera that will never ever betray us, even if it is night time. (Agree?)

Choose the right gadget. Selfies are made even better with OPPO F1 Selfie Expert. Trust me when I say their making your #selfiegoals turn into a certified #selfieexpert! 

'The OPPO F1 houses an 8-megapixel front facing camera with a wide  f/2.0 aperture lens and a sensor size of ¼ inches. This allows for more light to enter the camera so you can take a clear selfie even in less ideal lighting conditions. (WOW, SPENDING HOURS OF FINDING THE PERFECT LIGHTING IS NOT A PROBLEM ANYMORE!!)

Use the Beautify 3.0 feature to your advantage and enhance your look for an always perfect selfie experience. It brightens your skin and seamlessly removes blemishes, so you can always look your best. You can also choose from three different beautification modes or apply one of the many available filters.
