Photo editing hack on TikTok
It won’t come as a shock that the first piece of advice this trend gives is to make sure that your photos are taken in a good light. You can adjust images as much as you want to fit your perfect standard but if you start with good lighting you’re in a better position to begin with.
To achieve this effect, the direct light on your face must be natural (try to avoid harsh light which can come from being in direct sunlight, sometimes a shady spot on a sunny day is actually the best light). Once you've taken your photo and decided that you're going to include it in your TikTok, follow the steps below which are meant to enhance your photo!
