Materials and Tools:
photo clearly showing the profile of a subject's head and shoulders
black paper (the size of the photo)
solid-color or patterned background paper (size of the frame)
1. Choose a photo that clearly shows the subject's profile. The more contrast between the face and background the better. Tip: A great way to create this contrast is to photograph the subject in front of a bright light.
2. Using scissors and/or a utility knife, cut around the head and shoulders shape in the photograph to create a template.
3. Trace the template onto the black paper and cut out the silhouette. Then glue the cut-out shape to the background paper and place in frame.
