This year many of our festive plans have changed. With us all spending more time at home, why not take your Christmas portraits yourself this year! See the video below for the full tutorial:
Using solely things found around the house, I was able to out together this set and get a gorgeous photo for the grandparents!
Brown paper 99p from Home Bargains
Faux fur rug from Ikea (also found in Dunelm, B&M etc, £10+)
Ring light kit from Home Bargains £8.99 (you could also use a desk lamp or natural light!)
20 plush snowballs from Amazon £6.99
Photographed using iPhone 11 camera
I used the Snapseed app's healing tool to edit out any imperfections as well as changing the ambience and brightness level. This can also be done in apps such as Lightroom or Facetune but Snapseed is completely free on both IOS and Android devices.
I then used InShot to add a warm filter, rotate and crop the image slightly and added the sparkle effect. There are loads of different photo editing apps where you can edit photos in this way, so find your preferred one and roll with it!
See the gallery below for the before, during and after editing.
We hope you've enjoyed this tutorial and if you have a go yourself, we would love to see your results!!
