Email us a photo or two of your subjects, if possible with faces in profile (or send us some separate head shots). They do not need to be in the same photo or facing the right direction, we can work a little artistic magic to make this happen!
N.B Due to popular demand this image is also available to buy 'as is' - please convo us if this is what you are after.
Available as a set of two 8x10" giclee print (absolutely the best quality professional print you can find, printed on fine art finish 300gsm archival paper).
Ordering your custom silhouette is easy!
Email us a photo or two of your subjects if possible with faces in profile (see tips on your photo below) and we will send you a proof within the next few days.
Once you are happy with the portrait we will print and dispatch your print, carefully packaged in a bend-proof cardboard flat mailer.
Alternatively we can send you your portrait as a full res PDF file which you can print out yourself or take to your local printshop.
For head and shoulder portraits:
Place your subject in profile against a light background.
Make sure your subject is looking straight on (not slightly toward you or the background)
and is nice and relaxed, mouth closed if possible.
Position yourself at eye level with your subject.
Be sure to include the entire head and shoulders.
For girls, hair worn up in a ponytail can add more interest to the portrait.
Don't worry about being too neat - any stray curls or hairs add some charm to the portrait!
For full figure portraits:
Try to keep subjects faces in profile.
Keep poses simple.
And that's it. Happy snapping!
