How to take self potrait: step by step Guide

The self-portrait has been a popular form of expression ever since we discover our reflection .

Today I’ll walk you through some simple steps for taking your first self-portrait, followed by a huge collection of photos that I take myself. Let’s get started!

How To Take a Self-Portrait

I ordered a camera from flipkart, I am having canon 1500d , a very basic camera to start off  where you can learn much of things.

For taking photos I even bough Tripod (link).The camera has a wifi feature from where you can turn on the wifi and connect if with cannon app from google play ,I always use this app to take self potraits.

Below you’ll find some helpful tips to start off:

Something to Focus : how??

The problem that I saw when I looked through before connecting my wifi was how would it focus? then I realised in canon 1500d and in today’s every camera has auto and manual mode for focusing so no worry about that!!

I connect camera connect from my mobile phone, set up my camera on tripod,set the auto button on and boom!! you are ready to set fire!!.

Use Both Auto and Manual Focus

A good practice to get into when you’re taking self-portraits is to use a mix of auto and manual focus. First, focus on your stand-in object using auto focus. Then, with the object still in focus, switch your lens to manual focus.Just make sure you stand perfectly on your mark each time you take a photo.

Capture You

My last tip is to use the images below only loosely as inspiration. A self-portrait should be a very personal expression, not simply a mirror of something you’ve seen elsewhere. Think about who you want to be and how you want to say that. Use props, scenery, pose and lighting conditions to convey your personality. And most of all, have fun!

Apply Minimal Effects

With effects, it’s best not to overdo it.But the right effect can make do your photos turn to just wow, so here are some presets for free.

You can also do changes with your Shutter speed, ISO ,saturation , brightness and all.These features will be included in your camera, every camera has a user manual so you can go through and get the idea.

Thanks me later.
