Hacks To Help You Click The Perfect Group Selfie Every Time
We are sure that by now, all you readers must have mastered the art of taking fantastic selfies. You have selfies ranging from bathroom selfies, to in-bed selfies, to eating-an-ice-cream selfie. But, have you mastered the art of taking a group selfie or a ‘groupfie' or ‘usie' yet? No? Well, now you can click the perfect group selfie with these easy tips!
A selfie stick would really sort out most of the problems associated with taking a group selfie. However, if you don't have one, no need to worry, just hand the phone to the tallest person in the group, or the one with the longest arms. This photographer can also double up as the director who can direct who to stand where so that there is no issue with who wants to stand next to whom.
Mind The Light
The perfect lighting can do wonders for any picture, including your group selfie. Find the perfect lighting that flatters and makes everyone in the group look good. Remember to not have your source of light right behind your group, or you will end up with a dark shadowy picture. Your light source should always be facing you. Avoid the flash as much as you can, since it does no wonder to your photographs. Opt for natural light as and when possible.
1, 2, 3 Say Cheese!
Make it clear to everyone in the group when the picture will be taken. Maybe you can all decide to be ready by the count of three or at the phrase "Say cheese!" This way everyone's focus will be on the camera and they won't get caught on film looking into space or with their mouth in some weird contraction.
Give ‘Em Choices
It is always, and we mean always, a good idea to click multiple group selfies in succession. It is very rare to find a single picture in which every member of the group looks good; someone is bound to have their eyes shut, or get clicked whilst fidgeting their hair. Multiple pictures give everyone a choice to find a picture that they good look in. Look for Burst Mode or Continuous Shot option on your phone/camera.
Give It Your Best Shot
Flash your most dazzling smile in the picture or if everyone is in the mood go in for silly poses or pouts. You can even do dramatized and recreated poses from your favourite movies. As long as you are having fun and giving it your best shot, your picture will turn out wonderful. Just remember to enjoy yourself!
