OPPO F1s is, without any doubt, the best selfie phone in the market. However, aside from taking selfies and focusing only on our faces, most of us love to post Instagram-worthy OOTD but the question is, can we also use OPPO F1s to produce perfect OOTD?
The answer is YES!
And to further support this claim, I would be discussing some tips and tricks in taking the #PerfectOOTD with OPPO F1s.
Also, I would be using OOTD pictures of our favorite celebrities as well as Lookbook and Instagram’s best fashion icons as our reference since like you, I’m also still learning how to perfect taking OOTD.
Speaking of perfecting OOTD, be sure to invest in a good selfie-focused smartphone like OPPO F1s because Cellphones/smartphones are not created equal.
Some seem to have good specs but when you use them for selfies, they aren’t really flattering.
If you’re looking to have awesome looking OOTD, you should get one that’s engineered especially for selfies and OOTD such as OPPO F1s. This is the reason why I’m featuring this phone in this blog post.
Before we discuss how to do the actual OOTD, let’s do the following steps to show how we can take #PerfectOOTD with OPPO F1s and why it is the perfect choice for OOTD fashion gurus and selfie experts.
STEP#1: LEARN THE FEATURES
It is useless to have an amazing camera phone without knowing how to use it properly. It’s like going to battle without even knowing how to shoot. It’s like taking a test without even reading and reviewing your notes. You might take great OOTD by chance but the likeliness of this happening is low unless you’re a super hot model who can make a bathrobe look like a gown. If you’re like the rest of us, please read on. Unlike taking selfies, taking OOTD isn’t a walk in the park. There are more rules and aspects that are needed to be taken into account. With that said, let’s look at the OOTD and selfie-centered features of OPPO F1s.
OPPO’s FRONT CAMERA
At a very competitive price, OPPO F1s’ Front camera, features, and modes make it the best selfie expert phone in the market. It has an impressive 16 MP front-facing camera along with f/2.0 aperture size.
When OPPO released their F1 model earlier this year, I thought it had some really impressive features relative to its price but as soon as I learned about OPPO F1S and researched about it, I found out that it’s definitely the BEST selfie and OOTD smartphone in the market today. We don’t always have someone to take our pictures so we should choose a smartphone that specializes in selfies and selfie-type OOTD, and that is OPPO F1s. No other cellphone in the Philippines is marketed and centered on taking selfies and have the actual features and specs to prove it. In fact, its front cam is even more powerful that its standard camera. That’s how serious OPPO is when it comes to selfies and OOTD. We all know that selfie is a huge part of OOTD when you’re alone.

In fact, its front cam is even more powerful that its standard camera. That’s how serious OPPO is when it comes to selfies and OOTD. We all know that selfie is a huge part of OOTD when you’re alone. When you have someone with you, you can also take advantage of OPPO’s 13MP rear camera, which is definitely better than most camera phones because you can do so many adjustments, plus you can partner the crisp details with the filters and Beautify 4.0 as well to create the PERFECT OOTD!
There’s no need to download apps to make yourself more attractive and instagram friendly. By using Beautify 4.0, you are assured that you have flawless face and skin to match your awesome OOTD.
PATENTED SCREEN FLASH FEATURE
You don’t have to hurry up doing your OOTD to catch the sun’s awesome natural light, OPPO F1s makes sure that front cameras enables you to capture awesome OOTD and selfies even during the night.
PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AGAINST THE LIGHT
Yes, you’ve read that right. You don’t have to turn your back on the awesome sunlight ever again. No more mis-shapen face because of the sunlight. Plus, the sun’s rays can even create halo-like outlines on your body, face and dress, making your OOTD more stunning.
Once again, you don’t have to download apps nor go to Instagram just to apply filters on your favorite OOTD. You only have to use the features directly installed on OPPO F1s. You can even tune your facial tones directly on your OPPO F1s without having to use any third party app because the filters are already built-in or it is already installed on the unit. You can choose different tones such as: CAFE, BRIGHT, CANDY, SHINE, SOFT, FADE and MONO. All of which look natural and can be used to set your mood.
Taking your selfie but afraid to leave something out of the picture? You can use panorama. Whuuuut?? Yes, you can use panorama for your OOTD and selfies and not just when you’re taking pictures of landscapes,etc. This time, the panorama is in your front camera so you can easily take OOTD and selfies without having to crop out some details. You simply tilt it from left to right to capture your selfie panorama.
It organizes your pictures based on location or date it was taken. If you have thousands of picture and you’re searching for something particular, you can use this feature to facilitate the search. It would be easier to make side by side OOTD comparisons using this feature. For example, your company’s uniform changed, it would be awesome to look at the side by side OOTD to see which one was better.
Palm shutter detects your palm so you can use it as a trigger for the time shutter. Instead of using bluetooth devices to properly time your photo, you can just use your palm. Not only can you use your palm to activate an automatic selfie, OPPO F1s also accepts voice commands so by saying “CHEESE”, the phone automatically takes a selfie shot.
STEP#2: Check if you have everything you need for that perfect OOTD
For OOTD on the go, aside from the actual cellphone, we basically need 5 other things:
⦁ selfie sticks (to capture most of your OOTD or include a great backdrop)
⦁ Led-lights (for taking shots at night)
⦁ Bluetooth remote shutter (since it’s hard to rely on just the timer—it’s either too short or too long).
⦁ filters (to make your OOTD more flattering)
⦁ photo editing apps (to hide blemishes, pores, etc. without using makeup)
It’s amazing because with OPPO F1s, we can take perfect OOTD even without these 5 things because of:
1.) Panoramic Selfie – you don’t have to use a selfie stick to make sure everything you want to include in the OOTD is in the frame.
2.) Screen Flash – no need to bring Led lights to illuminate ourselves at night.
3.) Integrated Palm and Voice Remote Shutter – use your palm or say “cheese” to activate the remote shutter, so you won’t need to worry about buying or bringing a Bluetooth remote shutter.
4.) Filters within the cellphone itself – no need to use filters on Instagram or third party apps.
5.) Beautify 4.0 – no need to install third party apps to make your selfie look awesome.
STEP 3: Study OOTD and photography tips online
Study OOTD and photography tips online as well as the OOTD of your favorite celebrities and online OOTD experts so you can try them out and see which ones are perfect for you. Use them as inspiration but don’t totally copy their style. To help facilitate the process, I’ve compiled some of the great tips online (with references mentioned at the end of this blog post) so we can all become OOTD experts. Plus, I included some awesome OOTD from lookbook.nu, which is actually a great place to look when you want to inspire yourself for your next OOTD.
TIP#1. GREAT LIGHTING.
This is perhaps the most used tip by OOTD experts online. Find bright lights that are not too harsh.Soft lighting adds warmth to images making it more stunning. Best hour to get an awesome OOTD shot is an hour after sunrise or an hour before sunset because the colors are amazing during this times which can do wonders with your OOTD. Natural lighting is the best for #OOTDs and selfies but remember, OPPO F1s enables you to take your OOTD regardless of the lighting you have, so whether the sun is too bright or there is little lighting, you can trust that your OOTD would still turn out amazing.
TIP#2. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT.
Practice your angles and poses in the mirror so that you won’t have to deal with awkward looking poses. Some outfits are not meant for certain poses so make sure you look in the mirror first to capture the best side of the outfit and of course, yourself. Remember the best poses and your most flattering angles. Be sexy but make it subtle. Positioning your arms, hands and feet are essential because even the smallest movement or detail can make or break an awesome OOTD. Speaking of mirrors, you can also use these mirrors to snap your full body OOTD. Just make sure that your hands don’t cover the outfit or else it would just become a normal selfie.
There are so many poses you can make for your OOTD depending on the clothes and look you want to project.
Remember, it’s a great idea to always experiment and practice.
It’s also a great idea to look at the best poses of celebrities and online OOTD experts.
Sarah Geronimo’s pose here shows one of the best types of poses that can highlight your OOTD and give you an hourglass shaped figure.
Using Oppo F1s ensures that you have crisp images for your OOTD.
Also, did you know?

You may have seen in her in Oppo F1s Selfie Commercials.
TIP#3. YOU ARE NOT A MANNEQUIN. ADD SUBTLE MOVEMENTS.
Adding a light or subtle movement to an OOTD is like making your OOTD photos come to life. A “walking pose” is a great example of this. This makes your viewers and followers an idea how the outfit would look like in an everyday scenario.
TIP#4. USE GOOD BACKGROUND AND BACKDROPS.
Make sure that backgrounds and backdrops don’t grab the attention too much. It should complement well with your OOTD. Some people use real-life settings as a backdrop. Some also use interesting backgrounds such as the beach, amazing landscapes, rock formations, field of flowers, grass, green vines, colorful paintings, murals, doors, floors, hedges and even graffiti.
If you find a background that looks like your OOTD, instead of running away because of shame, embrace it! It makes your OOTD more interesting and adds a little flavor of a theme to it.
Monochromatic effects are also an “in” thing for OOTD. It’s a little difficult to find a good solid-colored background though. But it’s actually cool to kind of blend in with the background.
Take this example of Jasmine Curtis-Smith. See how the cool plain background greatly complements her OOTD.
You can also use “weird” and striking backgrounds to highlight your OOTD. Colorful Graffiti is perhaps one of the most sought after OOTD background while the most common are steel roll-up doors, street/road, pavement/floors, and any kind of wall. When in doubt, use a WHITE background. This makes sure that all the attention is on you and that there are no distracting colors or things in the background.
TIP#5. USE PROPS.
Props can make your selfies more interesting, not only that, using props that are surefire like-getters are a way to make your OOTD more noticed. Examples of which are colorful things, animals and pets.
TIP#6. BE CREATIVE.
Take OOTD from different angles such as showing your back, or snapping it with your OPPO F1s above your head to take a non-traditional head to toe OOTD. Use your imagination. OPPO F1s can help you with that because it has an awesome front cam so you can experiment with different styles, angles and poses.
TIP#7. BALANCE WELL AND AVOID SHAKING HANDS.
If you suffer from constantly trembling hands, let another person take your OOTD, however, it’s a great advantage if you can snap your OOTD yourself so take your OPPO F1s and practice taking crisp and clear pictures so that you can have those perfect OOTD. We don’t want to see OOTD that are hastily taken or are blurry, right? If you are doing a difficult pose or have a hard time balancing, refrain from raising your leg,etc. If you have a great sense of balance, practice raised leg shots first so that it doesn’t look awkward and it appears clear in your OOTD. Make sure that poses which are difficult to maintain are avoided or practiced to avoid blurred shots.
To help you keep your balance, try OOTD’s wherein you use walls to keep you stable, either have your hand against the wall or have your back against it. Ella Cruz demonstrates how you can use the wall to keep your balance and strike an awesome pose that’s difficult to achieve while balancing.
TIP#8. BE MINDFUL OF LITTLE DETAILS
Whether it’s your shoes or your perfectly manicured nails, make sure that these little details don’t go unnoticed. You can snap the details and collage them with your OOTD for a truly magical effect. Refrain from snapping OOTD inside restrooms because it makes the OOTD look cheap and unprofessional. Look at your background as well and make sure that the things there are not insult-grabbing or out of place. Also, a great idea is to take a selfie of your makeup and top portion of your dress, then ask someone to take your picture while you’re doing your selfie. This way, you also have an OOTD of your full body. You can also add your shoes or bag in the collage.
TIP#9. HAVE FUN AND SHOW YOUR PERSONALITY
There’s a person behind that OOTD so go ahead and strut your stuff and show your personality. You can even use themes and emotions on OOTD to make them even more interesting. The really amazing OOTD though are ones where you look genuinely happy so have fun!
TIP#10. STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
Yes, there’s strength in numbers! Take multiple shots while moving a little in every shot, then you can choose which ones are the best rather than having to mimic a certain angle or pose you like to take a specific shot again. Try out different poses, even jump shots and sitting poses can become a gem when taken in the right timing and angle. Remember, it’s better that you take multiple shots and choose from those shots than reenacting a good pose!
TIP#11. DON’T BE MONOTONOUS
Don’t post too many shots of your OOTD every day, just pick the ones that truly stand out.
TIP#12. MASTER THE ART OF TAKING SELFIES FOR YOUR OOTD.
You can’t always rely on someone else to take your pictures. Sometimes you’re even more confident if you’re taking your own pictures. Also, there will always come a time when you’ll go to a place or occasion alone.Wouldn’t it be too embarrassing to ask strangers or people you’ve just met to take your pictures right? Also, since OPPO F1s has an automatic shutter, you don’t even have to worry about buying a remote shutter. You can just say cheese or use your palm to take a timed OOTD photo.
