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.

Fantastic after paying for second edition

The original silhouettes came as 11 wide and 14 tall. The website does not explain this anywhere and makes the assumption you know the industry standard is width by height. But I needed them 11 tall by 14 wide. So I had to pay for additional prints and specify this in the comments. It was a less expensive option and I am happy as they now fit my custom frames and mats, but I am frustrated that it was not clear on their website and I had to buy my silhouettes twice.

Becky, We are happy to hear you're pleased with your portraits. I am sorry you were confused with dimensions. We are always happy to answer questions prior to ordering and have clearly specified the direction and size of the portraits on the item description. Landscape and is industry standard for the wider side. We assume you understand that at the time of placing the order. You were also trying to frame a single portrait which always comes vertically oriented into a landscape opening. That is not a common way photos or prints are framed. Again, we are happy to have been able to accommodate your special request.
