How To Take A Flawless Selfie Video In 2021

The art of how to take a good selfie

No matter what anyone says, there is definitely an art to taking a good selfie. From lighting, to angles and background, there are a number of things to think about when snapping those selfies for Instagram. But everyone knows that the art isn’t just in snapping a great selfie, it’s also in the editing. Filters are definitely a staple for any selfie lover and a good filter can really make for a captivating selfie. However, what about creating the same effect on your TikToks, YouTube, or tumblr videos? Can’t we show the same love to our moving selfies as well as our still ones? Actually, now with the help of video editing apps like YouCam Video, you can achieve the same flawless look you are used to on your selfies.

How to Take a good selfie video

By now we’re all pretty much selfie pros, Instagram has been around for ages and we know exactly which filter we want to create the effect we want. However, with the rise of TikTok, people have moved on from simple selfies. The art of taking a selfie video is similar to that of taking a selfie, but there are some things you need to consider when creating your video:
  • The angle of the video
  • Your angles when you are moving in your video
  • Whether you will use a selfie stick, phone stand or something else
  • Your background (will it be plain, do you plan to record outside or inside? etc.)
  • The lighting for your video (i.e. do you have LED lights)

How To Take A Flawless Selfie Video

Once you have set up your space to record your video, the last thing you need to think about is your angles. Your movement in relation to the camera (your cell phone) is as important as the placement of the camera itself. Tips for getting angles right in your videos:
  • Practice your moves in front of the mirror first
  • Practice in different lighting to get used to the different effects
  • Get someone to help you record (if you can)
  • Record a practice run of your moves & review it yourself to see where you can improve.
