Hey loves! So I get asked on Ig a lot on how I take my selfies, what equipment do I use, do I get styled from someone, where do I get my clothes from and so forth. So today I’m going to spill the tea on how I take my ig selfies so you can achieve the same look too! (It’s pretty easy, trust me I’m pretty lazy haha) ok! Let’s go!
So the first thing is you don’t need a fancy camera. If you have a smart phone there’s your camera. I use my iPhone 7plus for all my selfies, using the selfie camera too (obvi). If you don’t have a smart phone, see if you can borrow someone’s who cool with that.
Second! Use your current surroundings, I take my photos mostly outside around my neighborhood and house. I think outside is perfect because you can use that natural light; especially during the golden hour which I always try to do. There’s no need to travel far for photos if you don’t have to!
Third, I use a tripod most of the time. I do have two sisters and my bestie who take photos for me sometimes but no one knows your angles better than you! You can find super affordable tripods on amazon that are under $25; if not ask someone you know to borrow theirs or coach someone to know your angles.
Fourth; I get my inspo from the belly of the beast…instagram of course! I don’t have a stylist because I am my own stylist and so can you. There are tons of fashion bloggers, social media people and more who I love and I get inspo from. You don’t need to break the bank either on clothes.
Self plug in 3…2…1… you can shop my clothing store Iman Evette for affordable clothing, $50 can get you an outfit pretty much. Use code Gemini for 25% off the whole month of June! Most importantly when it comes to clothing, just be you! Definitely grab your inspo but put your personal twist to it.
Last but not least take as many selfies as possible, you can rock the same look like I do most of the time (I’m lazy I told you haha) and take selfies in a million angles or change up your wardrobe a couple of times. Whatever works!
Make sure you’re always having fun and don’t over think it! If you’re not having fun then what’s the point?!
I hope these tips help you and if they did please let me know! Share your ig with me so I can see your bomb ass selfies! If you guys want another post like this, let me know in the comment section.
Until next time!
