SARASOTA – With social media being so popular in 2018, most people are always trying to take the perfect selfie.
If you’re anything like me, it’s a daily quest to find the best picture to upload to Instagram.
Maria Lyle of Maria Lyle Photography shares tips on how to take the perfect selfie.
Step 1, Lighting.
“Lighting is everything. Light is what makes a photograph, besides from exposure, but light makes it. You’re painting with light,” said Lyle.
Step 2, Confidence
“You look at yourself. You work with that and you kind of fix yourself a little bit and you know you can give it a little pep talk and then go for it,” said Lyle. “And also the angle that you’re using so going up,” said Lyle. “When you are doing a selfie you want to be angled up, you don’t want to be aiming from down below because that makes you look bigger. Photographically speaking we don’t want to be bigger, we want to be smaller so therefore kind of go a little bit higher up.”
Lyle says not to forget “It’s all about fun baby.”
