Frontback, the social app that lets you take dual perspective photos, is now available for Android. Here are 11 great, original ideas for creating awesome photos for the mobile app specialized in selfies.
To keep even the most creative users happy, Frontback has introduced a few handy features to keep your selfies fresh. The best addition? If you’re not happy with your photo, you’ll be able to change it as easily as tapping the image. But that’s not all– a slide up or down will let you swap images, moving them from the bottom to the top, and vice versa, with a single touch.
Jump straight into the world of Frontback and get inspired with these 11 original ideas to create your own great Frontback photos.
What better way to surprise people than by messing with the rules of nature? Frontback invites you to take a picture of what’s in front of you in the first image, and a selfie with the second, so why not put yourself on display twice? You can even spice things up by changing the orientation of the camera.
Sometimes you need to take a risk to really impress people. Thinking about scaling a mountain or going bungee jumping? It’s probably a good idea to take a selfie of it. Frontback will let you capture the special moment – just try not to risk your life for that perfect picture too often.
Your moment of tenderness deserves more than just an average selfie. Frontback lets you take images that are both funny and touching – all you need to do is cook up a unique scene.
An upside down Frontback
Photos of feet are huge on Instagram. The hashtag #fromwhereistand, indicating a first person POV, is one of the most popular on the network. With Frontback, you can take the concept a little further and add a photo of your surroundings too.
Shadow and light
The interplay of light and shadow in photography add an element of mystery to the objects in your image. As you can see in the two examples below, the possibilities are practically infinite, as are the number of likes your photo could get!
Benjamin Button, the Frontback version
If you’ve got your baby photos hidden away somewhere, now’s the time pull them out. Publish an image of yourself at two different ages, and show the young-at-heart side of your personality.
Somewhere between photography and art
How would you like to recreate a famous artwork or painting, this time, starring you? The more famous the original, the better. At the moment, people are trying to “emojify” themselves– in other words, imitate emoticons from messengers. Can you do better than this?
Man’s best friends
Maybe you’ve got the heart of a lion, or the cunning of a fox. Perfect – take a photo and complete the image with your face. Even better, copy the faces your pets pull, and create a really funny photo.
The two-in-one mashup
A new take on Frontback is to try and create complete images by using both cameras on your phone. Even harder, try to merge two different shots to give the impression of unity and flow. We’ll warn you now – it’s harder than it looks.
Before and after
Time travel by capturing two different moments in the same shot. Be careful though: like you see in cheap ads, before and after pics can give some pretty crazy results. Furniture assembly, recipes, haircuts, home improvement– the possibilities are endless.
It seems that nature likes symmetry. Surprise your Frontback followers by taking totally symmetrical images, without a mirror. A handy tip: you can return to an image you’ve already taken by sliding your finger to the left or the right.
Now that you’ve got a few tips for creating Frontback images that’ll stand out from the crowd, you might even be chosen as one of the Frontback team’s famous Staff picks.
Of course, don’t be afraid to mix up these 11 ideas to create even crazier and more creative Frontback pics.
