Enhancing Your Selfie

Photography is really important no matter where you go. Even more so the selfie and usie is becoming even more important. Most are using their smart phones to take their pictures.

People are always trying to find ways to enhance their selfies. Some people have cosmetic treatments, have their hair done, and have their teeth straightened by this Dentist Mount Vernon before taking selfies, but without the right technology you’re wasting your time. Typically the front facing camera isn’t the best camera in low light. One such company has made it their mission to change that, LuMee. For some, it can take a while to get the photo that they think would be great to share on their social media. Whereas others may not have many followers, so may not see the need to post as much as they would if they used companies such as socialfollow to gain more of a following on Instagram. Everyone is different when it comes to how they use social media.

LuMee is a phone case with an LED strip. All you simply do is press a button and you can get instant light. This light helps you take the well lit selfie we have all been waiting for. I got one as a Christmas and I have to say it is pretty cool. The case has a dimmer on the back so you can make the LED light strip as bright or as dim as you would like.

I absolutely love phone cases so I was particularly excited to add this one to my collection. I am always switching out my phone case as they are a great way to accessorize. Did you also know that you can now Design a custom phone case with your personal photos? My best friend has a personalized phone case that is covered in gorgeous family photos. I think I might have to get a custom phone case of my own very soon. A personalized phone case would also make a great gift come to think of it.

Anyway, this case feels very protective, it is a plastic hard shell case. It has all the opens areas to charge your phone and plug your headphones in. The LuMee case also comes with its own charger. They have several different colors and currently available for a limited amount of phones that include the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy. Prices range from $39.95 to $44.95.

The case does make your phone a bit bigger and bulkier. I also had a hard time taking it off the phone. I had to call in some man power to get it off. There were also a couple of times I accidentally hit the on/off dimmer button. Other than that it is a cool case. You can definitly see the difference in the pictures or when your video chatting in low light. The LuMee website also has a ton of examples of before and after pictures.

So if you are looking into enhancing your selfies, check out the LuMee case!

    Anything to improve my selfie skills would be much appreciated! I wonder if they make these for the droid.

    • Holly Dayz

      I believe on their site I saw they are asking people what other phones would they like to see it for. So I guess if you let them know they will make them.


    Oh? I’ve never heard of this, but it makes a lot of sense lol. It’s all about finding the right light.
