Photo Guidelines

Custom Painted Silhouette Portraits

  

Here are some tips on the best photos to send as I will be working from the photos you provide and not from an image bank.

Email them over to me at: michelle@dreamcaptureartwork.com

  • Keep it natural and joyful
  • You will need to capture full body shots.
  • Choose clothes appropriate to the setting in which it’s being painted in. 
  • It’s best to take photographs at eye level.
  • I can work with a variety of photos and place you all together if getting a family portrait proves tricky.... especially if you have young children!

Once I receive your photos I work on placing them in a way that will fit with the back ground and will email  you a mocked up outline of how they will look.
There is no way of altering these once I paint you all on so it’s important that your are happy with the mock up I send through and will be given this opportunity to make any adjustments.

If the images you send through doesn’t meet our guidelines, I will try my best to make you look as natural as possible but it might not be as good as it could be. Also note that they are hand painted so that the silhouette is a real artistic representation rather than a computer generated one which will fit in naturally with the background.
