7 Best Mirror Selfie Poses Ideas
Let’s start with some of the mirror selfies poses that you can try.
To vary a little from the classic selfie in front of the mirror, you can try a half face.
Stand in front of the mirror so that as much of your body as possible comes out. Place the cell phone right in the middle of your face. Just far enough away so you can see the screen and focus on your photo. Tilt your face a bit to make sure you’re not totally hiding behind the phone.
Sexy Body Selfies
If you have an oval mirror with a rustic frame, take care of it because it is a great element for poses in front of mirrors. This is the pose for those days when you like your outfit, but don’t feel like taking a selfie. You can place your mirror on a shelf or table. Just make sure is at a height where you can show the part you like most about your outfit. Take the photo with the camera at the height of your chin.
Looking over your shoulder and taking a picture can also be a good mirror selfie pose to show off your outfit of the day. If you’re feeling camera shy, you can pose with the camera in front of your face.
Legs Up or Legs Crossed
If you have a corner in your house where you can lean your back on one side and your feet on the other, try taking this selfie! Put the mirror in front of you and sit a meter or two away from it. Rest your arm on you so that you have greater precision when focusing. And do not cover your face.
You can also try a variation like sitting in front of the mirror for a unique mirror selfie, or cross your legs on the floor.
Profile in the Mirror
Sit in profile to your mirror, as close to it as you can. Take the photo with the hand that is on the opposite side of the mirror. Place the phone diagonally so that you and half of the mirror come out.
Photo in the Rearview Mirror of the Car
This is not an easy shot and you may need someone’s help. But if you succeed you will have a super cool selfie in the mirror. Although it is obvious, it is not too much to clarify that you have to do it when the car is not moving.
Show your face so that it appears almost completely in the upper corner of the mirror. Try to take the photo below. The point is that the hand with which you are taking it does not come out. If you can ask someone for help, it is better to make the shoot outside the car.
The mirrors to watch, or convex, are those that we find in the streets or in self-service stores. These mirrors have a curvature that widens the parameter of the reflection. And of course, that makes them excellent for a good selfie.
If you meet one, do not miss the opportunity and stand a few meters away but in a straight line. Take a photo where the mirror appears in the center. Try to make the mirror come out completely and have a margin of space.
Selfies that are not Selfies
Mirrors are undoubtedly a great tool for photography. With a little creativity, you can get fabulous photos. But there are certain shots for which we do need help so that the result is an incredible selfie.
A photo of us from the angle of a mirror on the floor is a great original photo idea. This shot is perfect in open landscapes that can be seen in the photo.
Arrange the mirror in such a way that you can see your full body in front of it. For this, it will have to be somewhat reclined. The photo should be taken close to the mirror and from the side. The point is, of course, that the photographer does not appear in the shot.
