A Love-ly Pose
Posted By Lindsay On February 1, 2013 @ 7:07 pm In Photo Tips | No Comments
You might not think Groundhog Day could be the inspiration for a Valentine’s Day photoshoot. But, inspired by several great shadow photos (including this family pose) on Pinterest , we came up with a romantic pose that is perfect for the holiday.
Capturing this photo requires a bit of advance planning – you’ll need sunshine, to start! – but isn’t too hard to pull off.
Create your letter shadows by cutting out a stencil on posterboard, making the individual letters to be large enough to read.
Then, find your “background” – this can be any flat surface. In this photo, we used a brick wall to give added texture. With the sun behind you, hold your letters above you and snap away! The fun comes with trying out different poses – kisses, linking arms, and other silly moves only add to the charm.
Hint: Shooting too early or too late in the day can cause your shadow on the ground to be too long. Simply pose in front of a wall – this will control your shadow.
Will you be photographing your shadow this Groundhog Day?
