Valentine’s Day is very close, so it’s time to decide how to spend it. Even if you are skeptical about this holiday and you are annoyed by the hype around it, you can still come up with something special on this day. For example, have fun with your soulmate by arranging an unusual photo shoot.
To help you with your ideas, Depositphotos, a library with over 145 million authentic images, offers 10 themes for Valentine’s Day photo shoots.
1. Art photography
If you are looking for unusual ideas for a romantic photo shoot, try art photography. This genre gives a lot of creative freedom at every stage – from choosing a topic to experimenting with post-processing. To get creative shots, use props when shooting. You can realize any plan. Perhaps you have long wanted to repeat a famous scene from the movie “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” or try on Renaissance costumes. Why not do it on Valentine’s Day?
2. Happiness in the little things
Think about the moments when you feel happy. Perhaps when you have breakfast in bed, drink tea on the balcony or have an evening movie show with your soulmate. Try to capture these moments of joy during a photo session on Valentine’s Day. You will get atmospheric images and can have fun from the heart.
3. Romance on the roof
A romantic photo shoot on the roof is not a new idea, but thanks to the lighting you can get unique shots. Just plan on shooting at the “golden hour” – the first after sunrise or the last before sunset. At this time, the light is softer, it changes every minute, so each photo will be special. In addition, the frames will convey the unique atmosphere and charm of the moment.
4. Black and white story
A black and white story is a photo idea for couples who want timeless shots. This kind of shooting is best done in a studio where the photographer can control the lighting to create creative black and white photographs.
5. Weekend walk
If you are planning a walk or a mini trip to the sea on Valentine’s Day, try to find a photographer in these parts of the world. You can discover new places, enjoy your vacation, taste delicious food, and the shots taken at this time later will remind you how you had a great weekend.
6. Close ups
If you like authentic shots and minimal post-processing, select a series of close-ups. The essence of the idea is to capture the details that convey love and tenderness during shooting. Close-up shots of hugs, eyes, smiles – you have a large selection of options.
7. Winter’s tale
If there is still enough snow in your area on Valentine’s Day, use this as an idea for shooting. Go with your soulmate for a walk in the forest and invite a photographer with you. Also do not forget the props, such as sparklers, snacks and a thermos with hot tea. Have a picnic, but do not forget to know the weather forecast in advance. A sunny frosty day is perfect for this shoot.
This is the most romantic shooting idea for couples, which has an element of surprise. If you choose the moment to make an offer, Valentine’s Day is perfect. Let the photographer capture the sincere and pleasant emotions of a special day that will remain in memory for a lifetime.
9. As if no one is watching
Don’t like to pose and feel awkward standing in front of the camera lens, but still want to get romantic pictures on Valentine’s Day? Ask the photographer to take a life-style photo while you do your daily business. You can rush to work in the morning, have lunch in a cafe or go for an evening walk, and the photographer will take pictures of you in a natural setting.
10. Roller coaster
What photos in the archive are your favorites? Probably those on which you smile and experience positive emotions. On Valentine’s Day, you can have fun in the amusement park and add new pictures to your collection. Ride a roller coaster, buy cotton candy and just fool around while the photographer takes great shots.
With these ideas for photo shoots, you can spend an unforgettable day with your soulmate and capture its unique moments so that memories of them remain for life. Get ready for Valentine’s Day by choosing your favorite theme from this list.
