Tips For The Best Silhouette Photo Shoot!

Silhouette photography is an elegant type of photography, that not only holds the power to depict emotions but also lets the beholder feel them. A couple’s photo shoot comes out the best in the form of silhouette photography as they show off the love the two people hold for each other.

This type of photography can be tricky for both the photographer as well as the model since it focuses on the light behind the model rather than the model itself. However, if done right, the pictures come out beautifully. Here are some tips and tricks to help you pose for a silhouette photoshoot and have lots of fun!

1. Pay Attention to Photo Details and Styling

For Event Planning Trends

Since your face isn’t visible in silhouette photography, pay more attention to your hair and body. Wear normally fitted clothes that highlight your body and go for a free-flowing hairstyle like a bun or natural neatly brushed wavy hair. You can also try wearing a skirt or a frilly outfit to direct attention towards your outfit.

We recommend planning your poses beforehand. Try out different poses and choose the ones that you like the best – romantic poses for a pre-wedding shoot and some fun ones to remember the good times with your friends!

2. Choose Your Photo Lighting

Sunrise or sunset is usually when silhouette photoshoots are done, but daytime shots look amazing too. These are taken right in the middle of the day when the sun is overhead and are very creative and different. When completely black-lit, and the pictures look very interesting.

P.S. If you’re going for nature silhouettes, they are captured perfectly during the daytime. Don’t wait all day for the perfect lighting, start early and capture shots during the perfect light as it sets in.

3. Pick the Perfect Photoshoot Location

Pick your location wisely depending on how it looks at different times of the day and when you would like to get your pictures clicked. The best time for pictures at the seashore is either the sunrise or the sunset, similarly, hilltop pictures will come out great during the daytime as well. Your location will also affect your pose, so we recommend having the photo session at a location that makes you feel happy and lively, or peaceful and calm. After all, your emotions will be captured in the pictures!

4. Pick the Perfect Photo Pose For You

Different locations require different poses, for example, a simple lovely pose on a swing set is perfect for a location with a viewpoint, whereas running or picking your partner up is the pose you should go for if you plan on getting clicked at the beach. Imagine you are in a romantic movie and work your way around.

5. Add Props to Your Photos

If you feel shy posing or are not satisfied with your pictures, you can add some props to make the process of getting clicked feel more natural. Blowing bubbles at the beach, throwing a ball back and forth with your friends, running through a meadow of beautiful flowers or pretending to be deep in conversation with the love of your life. Choose props or activities that will make you feel special and cheerful; those that come to you naturally and put a smile on your face.

P.S. Take a day in advance before your photographer arrives and try out all the tips given above with your friends or your partner, so that you are picture-perfect for your photo session, are in your natural element and have an amazing time as well as amazing shots!
