Today’s post is going to be ALL ABOUT SELFIE! 😀
For those of you who don’t have a single clue about selfie (I doubt there is, though), here’s a short explanation of what it is and what it has become in this digital age:
Selfie (n.): “A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.”
I’m sure every one of you has taken at least 10 selfies in your life lah! Thanks to social media sites, it has become a phenomenon that even Oxford Dictionaries gave it a place in the dictionary (yes, Selfie is officially a word of the English language), and it’s not even the best part!
The best part is…
It has been chosen as Word of the Year 2013 by Oxford Dictionaries!!! How awesome is that?!
Ok ok, enough of the theory, let’s move on to the practice! 🙂
I cannot stress this enough: Good lighting is everything in taking the perfect selfie! I understand if you want to hide some flaws, but the thing is, bad lighting itself is already so unflattering. And no, no amount of filter can improve the quality. So, no matter how pretty or handsome you think you look in a bad-lighting-photo, it’s still a bad photo. You want your selfies to be bright, clear and sharp. 🙂
Let’s see the comparison:
|Good lighting vs Bad lighting|
Ok you’re already so gorgeous and your hair is perfect, but an interesting background will give you another plus point! If you can’t find any, just keep it simple, like walls or curtains. 🙂
4. BE SHAMELESS
Just because you are in a public place, doesn’t mean you can’t take selfies! Good lighting? Checked! Interesting background? Checked! Camera? Checked! So, what are you waiting for? Nobody is going to watch you anyway, well maybe just for a few seconds, no biggie! Be confident and have fun!! XD Take multiple shots so you can pick out the best one to post later!

The camera you use to take selfies is a very important aspect in producing good photographs. My favorite selfie-camera has always been my own mobile phone’s front camera, well of course because I can see my face first before I snap it. Besides, it’s really troublesome to bring two gadgets everywhere! That’s why it’s really important for me to have a mobile phone with a good camera, and I was so very happy when I found out about this happening Lenovo VIBE X! It has a 13 MP rear camera, aaaand 5 MP front camera!!! NOW this is the kind of technology I like!! XD
Furthermore, the design of this phone is very aesthetic and stylish, you can see it for yourself:
