Hi there! It’s Monica here to show you an easy way to create more dramatic shadows for your photos.
One of my goals this year has is to work on improving my shadows. I typically don’t like to spend an enormous amount of time on the details of my layouts, but I do love the look of more customized shadows.
This tutorial will show you how to create shadows that give your photos a somewhat “curled” look on your layouts.
In this layout, I wanted to give the photo of my twin girls together a bit more dramatic look than everything else on the page in order for it to really stand out. Let’s first take a look at what this photo looked like without any shadow at all.
Pretty bland, right??
In this tutorial, we’re going to take a look at just that one detail of the layout.
Here is the finished layout with the customized shadow for the photo we worked on.
For this layout, I used the adorable Tandem kit. It was perfect for documenting my girls receiving their first bicycle for their fifth birthday!
