If you are not a pro in taking selfies, doing simple things like positioning your face slightly to one side can make your photo look much better, suggest experts. So if you want to impress your social media followers with a cool solo snap, do not forget to tilt your face a bit. Experts also suggest that whenever possible, click it under natural light.

“Taking photos in the dark is hard, and it may be tempting to use your phone’s flash. But flash photography often makes a selfie look washed out, and you can lose your background, or add glare to your face,” Google’s Mallory Richards wrote in a blog post after taking inputs from Pixel camera experts.

“Using photography’s ‘Rule of Thirds’ can help you snap a great picture, by bringing the focus of your photo to the area in an image where your eye naturally falls,” she wrote.

The idea behind the “Rule of Thirds” is that the subject of the photograph should not be placed in the middle. This can help one creatively use the negative space. It is also important to know when to use the portrait mode. According to the experts, this mode works best when the subject can stand out against a busy background.

“The subtle blur on Portrait Mode can help you pop against the background of your selfie. With Pixel 3 and 3a, you can adjust the blur to your liking,” Richards said. The experts cautioned against overdoing the editing part. “While editing apps are great, make sure you still look like yourself after you snap your selfie,” Richards wrote.

Curiosity Rover of NASA Snaps its Last Selfie on Martian Ridge

After spending more than a year on a twisting ridge on Mars, NASA’s Curiosity rover has snapped its last selfie as it moves on to new sights on the Red Planet.

“Curiosity rover has taken its last selfie on the Vera Rubin Ridge and descended toward a clay region of Mount Sharp. The twisting ridge on Mars has been the rover’s home for more than a year, providing scientists with new samples and new questions to puzzle over,” NASA said in a statement on Monday.

On January 15, Curiosity used its Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) camera on the end of its robotic arm to take a series of 57 pictures, which were stitched together into the selfie.

The images feature a location on the ridge called Rock Hall, which the rover drilled on December 15.

The Rock Hall drill hole is visible to the lower left of the rover; the scene is dustier than usual at this time of the year due to a regional dust storm.

Curiosity has been exploring the ridge since September 2017.

It is now heading into the “clay-bearing unit”, which sits in a trough just south of the ridge.

Clay minerals in this unit may hold more clues about the ancient lakes that helped form the lower levels on Mount Sharp, NASA said.
