Silhouette Profile Portraits -
You can email me the photos, and I will cut out 3 Silhouettes of the person for you, mounted on white card stock or my pre-printed Victorian backings, 5" x 7" (your choice). All suitable for framing. If you like, you may have some copies left loose (unpasted , no backing). Some people like that for their scrapbooking. The black Silhouette itself is about 3" to 4" high.
About the photos - how to
For Silhouette portraits, I would need a perfect side view photo of the entire head (including the entire back of the head and all of the hair), plus shoulders. Good posture, lips gently together, no smiling, no teeth showing.
Background should contrast with skin tone, making the face easy to make out. Drape a plain black cloth behind the person for light to medium skin. For dark skin tones, please drape a plain white, beige or other light colored cloth behind the person. Or simply pose them in front of a plain door.
Take photos at the subject's eye level to avoid distortion. This is especially true for children's photos. A child's silhouette is a true keepsake for generations to come.
Photos need to be high resolution, or a large file, JPG or Photoshop PSD. Many people are now using their phone's camera, which can be very good. Please be sure the images are not blurry or pixelated. They need to enlarge or blow up nicely.
Photos may be emailed to NancieMarieArt@msn.com
Yes, I also do pet Silhouettes of all sorts. They make great gifts.
Refer to the above section, "About the photo-" Please take your pet photo at the pet's eye level, never from above or looking down.
