Selfie Photography Tips for Chinese New Year


Celebrations call for photo opportunities. As the world welcomes the new year - the beginning of the Year of the Red Fire Rooster, it is just perfect to capture precious moments. Feng shui experts say it is going to be a Yin year—a time best spent in harmony with friends and family.

The Chinese New Year is perfect celebration to take fun, cheery photos with red lanterns, colorful food spreads and festive fireworks. 



If you are wondering how to take the best selfies for this special occasion, here are some tips on how to snap selfies by Vivo V5 Plus. The first smartphone with 20 mp front camera. 

:• Find your perfect angle. Some of us look better photographed from the left, some from the right, some from above. Before heading out to the Chinese New Year festivities, find the angle that suits you best by practicing at home. A fool-proof tip: Avoid take selfies from below—definitely not a good angle for anybody.



• Consider your photo’s background. The very reason we take selfies is because of the beautiful background behind us. The Vivo V5 Plus features a true ‘bokeh’ effect, beautifully blurring your selfie’s background while your face remains in focus. 


For instance, create a beautiful blur of all the red and gold during Chinese New Year celebrations by choosing the best selfie background. Although Vivo V5 Plus has ‘bokeh’ power, you don’t want to take a selfie with your cluttered closet as the background.


• Lighting is everything. Lighting affects the mood of your pictures. Dull or poor lighting makes pictures look gloomy—and you don’t want that for a Chinese New Year selfie. Vivo V5 Plus features a selfie soft light, which enables users to take sharp and beautiful selfies even in poor lighting conditions.

• Look your best. Welcome the Chinese New Year with a bang by making an effort to look good. In order to achieve a perfect selfie, everything must be on point—the hair, the face, even the attire. Achieve the perfect look with Vivo V5 Plus face beauty mode 6.0, which will make you look fresh by enhancing your skin tone without the need for editing or filter.


• It’s okay to use a selfie stick. A selfie stick is a pole with a grip at the end, designed to hold your smartphone when taking selfies. Selfie sticks are perfect for celebrations when you want to capture more people and more details. Bring a selfie stick on Chinese New Year to take better selfies of all the festivities happening around you.

• Make your selfie unique. Some people prefer selfies that look formal and sophisticated, while others like a touch of goofiness every now and then. Whatever your choice is, make sure you are comfortable and having fun. Make your selfie your own, and begin the year of the Red Fire Rooster by being yourself!
