I know there are a ton of tutorials out there on how to do this. I have been wanting to do it for awhile but I thought I would share my experience on here. That way you may not make the same mistakes as I did. Since I didn’t actually read any instructions before starting the project besides several weeks ago. Anyways moving on.
Supplies you need:
Black Construction paper
Exacto Knife or a whole punch
You will want to cut your design out of the black construction paper. Make sure you put it in the center not close to an edge so you don’t make this mistake.
I ended up having to cut and add an extra piece of black construction paper to get the design in the middle.
Second mistake was having an f/4, didn’t create very pretty photos. It was set up from my portrait shoot on Sunday. You will want as small as your lens will go.
Here is my 35mm f/1.8 but I had made my third mistake. When you take the photo you want the right white balance. Not like this one which I had my Kelvin set up for outside photos.
A good Kelvin number was around the 3k. Like this. Final, SOOC. Still not 100% pleased with it, but I wanted to share my mistakes and maybe help you if you decide to do this. I think I am going to do hearts or stars next.
Not quite sure why some crosses are cut off do you have a tip for me? What do you think?
