Photo Tips for Perfect Silhouettes

  • Place subject in front of a well-lit background, facing either left or right.
  • Only one side of the face must show on the photo and entire head should be in the photo.
  • A relaxed face helps to show the features (eyelashes, nose, lips) more realistically although smiling faces are cute too. It's up to you how you want to photograph them.
  • Pictures taken with a phone camera work too. Just make sure to take the photos in good lighting, during the daytime is preferred.
  • If photographing more than one person, take individual pictures.
  • Remember to take the picture straight at eye level with the person you are photographing, standing about 2-4 feet away.
  • If person has long hair (past the shoulder line) put it up. Ponytails, braids, messy buns really do make for cute silhouettes and add character to the final silhouette.
  • For full body silhouettes, take a picture of the people standing, walking away or towards the camera. This works well when photographing siblings.
  • When photographing babies, try taking the picture when they are asleep. Hold the camera directly above their face, with only one side of the face showing.
