66: DIY Personal Silhouette Frames
I previously did a post on Silhouette frames (here). And I wanted to share a really easy way to create your own personal silhouettes digitally...
1. Take a picture either against a light background or standing in light, with the camera facing the light source.
2. I used Picnik to edit the picture. Crop and resize the photo as desired under the 'Edit' tab.
3. Convert the image using the black and white effect under the 'Create' tab.
4. Return to the 'Edit' tab and adjust the exposure. Turn down the exposure and up the contrast until you get a clearly defined silhouette and the background becomes white with indistinguishable edges.
As simple as that!! In 4 easy steps you have your every own silhouette to frame!
