How a Selfie Can Help You Win in Your Modeling Auditions

Holly Bissonnette| July 18, 2014

There are plenty of tips that can help you score your modeling auditions. From dressing right and having a good personality, you can easily book a modeling gig on your own. Apart from having the physical features to be a model, the client you apply to will easily be attracted to you because of your persona. If you are an aspiring model, there are plenty of ways you can finally land a job.

But, while you are waiting for your big break, it is good to practice and continually improve yourself. One way you can do this is by taking selfie pictures so you can learn how to work your angles. By taking selfies, you will be able to build your self-confidence. When you work with a photographer, you will easily know how to do your thing since you already have the experience doing it.

When it comes to taking selfies, it is not wise to be mindless about it and just randomly take shots of yourself. A good way you can practice taking your selfie is to be conscious about your poses. Here are other selfie tips to help you improve yourself to get more modeling jobs:

Keep a Demure and Shy Smile

Unless the photo calls for it, models do not exactly give out a wacky and crazy smile. When you practice taking your selfie, see to it that you keep a small smile. As a matter of fact, there are some models who do not smile at all. Instead, they let their eyes do all the smiling, which is referred to as a ‘smize.’

Know the Best Time to Take a Selfie 

When you are taking a selfie, the best time to do it is during dawn or dusk, especially if you are aiming to take an outdoor shot. Taking a photo during the early morning is great because it will not produce an unsightly shadow on your face. The same is true about taking a photo during dusk. If you need to take a photo during midday, you can use flash on your camera.

Take a Photo During a Cloudy Day

Another good option to capture photos of yourself is during a cloudy day. This is because it will produce a beautiful effect on your photos. It will set the mood which you can use for your selfie. As a result, your photos will look a lot softer.

Use a White Wall for Your Backdrop

Lots of your modeling auditions will require you to pose in front of a plain white wall. This is because this backdrop helps in allowing you to stand out and be the focus of the photo. By practicing to do this with your selfie, you will be able to know what happens next when you attend an audition for a modeling gig.

Know Your Angles

As a model, you will be expected to know which angles on your body work and which ones do not. While you are still practicing to be a model, you can take selfies of different angles and see which ones work. This way, you’ll be able to know how to pose properly. When you finally work with a photographer, you will have an easy time with your poses.

Who ever knew that by just taking selfies, you can improve your modeling technique. The important thing is that you know how to work with what you have so you can become a professional model in no time. If you are serious about becoming a model, you have to keep practicing and updating yourself on where you can attend modeling auditions.
