As the old saying goes, people only see you as you allow them to see you, and this is never more true than when it comes to your digital presence. When you have social media profiles or other online presences, others get a glimpse of who you are, what matters to you and who you associate with. In fact, some people use your Facebook or LinkedIn profile as their first impression of you before they even meet in person! While the front camera on your smartphone may capture what others see when they look at you, it’s actually your back camera that captures the true essence of who you are. Ask yourself, is the back camera how others see me? Our society has become obsessed with our external appearance to the point where we would rather get quick nips and tucks than be happy with what nature gave us. If this sounds like you, it’s time to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Find out if you are obsessed with your exterior appearance, or if you can rise above it. In either case, learn how to see yourself through other people’s eyes by reading this blog today!
The Different between Front and Back Cameras
The front camera is what you see while looking in a mirror. It is what people try to capture when they take a selfie, and it is what shows up on your computer screen if you use Skype or Facetime. The back camera is the one that shows up on your profile picture when someone looks at it, and it’s also the one that captures your memories so that they can be shared with those who are not with you. The front and back cameras are different in many ways, but they both give insight into who we are and how we want to share ourselves with those around us. Front cameras allow for perfect angles of our faces as we stare deeply into our eyes; meanwhile, the back camera allows for blurry pictures that are often taken from farther away. Some would say the quality of pictures captured by the front cam-era may have more importance than their counterparts because it seems as though our society prefers taking selfies rather than group photos. Despite this, some of my favorite pictures were captured by friends’ backsides.
How Others see you when you use back camera
When we look into a mirror, it is easy to see what is wrong with our face or appearance. The same cannot be said when we take a selfie. Selfies can make us feel great about ourselves because they show us from only one angle and make it difficult for others to criticize our appearance. However, even though we often forget about the back camera, this does not mean that it does not exist. The back cameras on our smartphones are still there and can capture any imperfections in our faces or bodies. We may want to think twice before taking a selfie using our backs cameras in order to avoid disappointing other people who may see what they think are flaws in our appearance. In addition, if we ever want to post a photo of something important like a child’s party or family event, we should also consider having someone else take the photo rather than risk capturing an unflattering image of us. The photos taken by the back camera will always show our body’s true size and shape. If we are not comfortable with how our body looks, then we will probably have second thoughts about posting a picture taken by the back camera. Some people are more confident and comfortable in front of their peers; however, it can be harder to stay positive when you know your photo could be seen by more than just your friends and acquaintances. The first thing people usually notice is what is on your face, so some might start focusing on whether your makeup is flawless or if your hair looks messy even though you were doing all you could to look as good as possible for your online profile picture.
However, sometimes pictures taken from behind don’t work either!
Why the Back Camera is More Important
The back camera, for most people, is the one that gets a lot of use. It’s what we use to check ourselves in before going out on a date, or for other occasions when we want to look our best. We also rely on it to take high-quality photos and videos without having to turn around and face the person or object we are trying to capture. Most selfies are taken with this camera, too! In short, whether we realize it or not, having good quality photos and videos from your back-facing camera can make all the difference in your day-to-day life and in any situation where you need high quality images: photography work, video calls with friends and family, etc. You deserve to have pictures that accurately represent you and be able to show them off to the world; don’t let poor quality images ruin those moments. You deserve better!

How to Use the Back Camera
The back camera is often used for video recording and taking pictures. You can also use it to take selfies. To switch your phone from front to back, swipe up from the bottom of your screen. You can also open up your Camera app by tapping on its icon in your phone’s app drawer or home screen. To take a photo using the rear-facing camera, just tap on the circular shutter button on the bottom right corner of your screen. If you want to record video, just tap and hold that same button. The rear-facing camera is great for taking photos when there is less light because it has a larger aperture than most smartphone cameras which allows more light in when it takes photos.
How to choose the right back camera for you
The back camera is what people will see if they are looking at your phone from the rear. However, the type of phone and its size will determine what kind of back camera to choose. There are four different types of rear-facing cameras in smartphones: single, dual, triple, and quad. Single has a single lens that produces a photo with one focal point. Dual has two lenses, but it still only has one focal point. Triple consists of three lenses that produce a photo with three focal points. Quad includes four lenses producing photos with four points (think bokeh). Some say these types of images provide more detail than those taken with a single lens. Other factors like megapixels matter when choosing which type of back camera is best for you. Higher megapixel count provides sharper images, and therefore more detail to work with when editing or saving an image. The amount of zoom also comes into play when deciding which type of back camera would be best for you since most have varying levels of zoom capabilities on both the front and rear facing cameras depending on the model being used
Five easy tips for a great back camera selfie?
- Make sure your hair is styled and your makeup is done. You want to look as put together as possible in this photo, so take a few minutes to do your hair and makeup if you need to.
- Take a mirror selfie! It can be hard to judge what you actually look like from the angle of an iPhone camera, so take a mirror selfie so you can really see what’s going on in that photo before posting it for all the world to see.
- Avoid filters when taking selfies in natural light! The most flattering selfies are taken in natural lighting because that’s when our skin is at its best. If there isn’t any natural light where you are, then find something bright nearby to reflect onto your face or use the flash. If you want to filter after taking the picture, make sure you turn off live mode so it doesn’t show up on Facebook automatically (unless of course, it’s one of those times where a filtered selfie makes sense).
- Pretend like someone else took the picture and keep your head still . Don’t tilt it or move around too much–just be still with your chin up slightly and eyes open wide without squinting too much. That way no one will notice any wrinkles or bags under your eyes!
- Smile big! Even if you’re not feeling happy, try to force yourself into a smile and remember why we take selfies. We want people to know how great we are feeling on the inside by seeing us looking great on the outside. Remember: just think about how good it’ll feel when you get that like notification
A good selfie is a way of flaunting your best features, and a great selfie can capture an unforgettable moment. If you’re looking for tips on how to take a great back camera selfie, here are five easy ways to make sure your selfies look their best:
1) Make sure that there is ample light when taking a self-portrait with the rear-facing camera. This can help minimize shadows on your face and make it easier for people to see what you’re trying to capture. 2) Take pictures from different angles. When using the rear-facing camera, try not only going in front of the lens but also from below or above. Remember, you want to be capturing your subject from all angles so that viewers have as much context about who or what you’re photographing as possible.
3) Be mindful of where the sun is during sunrise/sunset because this will affect your photo’s natural lighting dramatically. For example, if you take a picture during sunrise time (where the sun is coming up), you may notice harsher shadows than if it were sunset (where the sun has gone down). Keep these things in mind when shooting photos with the back camera.
4) Smile! You never know who’s watching! Smiling really does makes everyone happier – even yourself!
