Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and it’s a great time to celebrate your love. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to make your social media photos look extra festive! We’ve rounded up some of our favorite ideas for creating cute, romantic backdrops. Whether you’re new to Instagram or an old pro at editing images, these tips will help you get gorgeous shots with minimal effort on your part.
Complementary colors are two colors that appear opposite each other on the color wheel: red and green; blue and orange; yellow and purple. These pairs of colors have a strong relationship with each other that can be used in design projects like this one. Since pink and red are opposites on the color wheel, they’re great choices for Valentine’s Day decorating!
When choosing a background for your photos, it’s important to consider what will be in the background. You want to choose a background that has nothing distracting, nothing too busy, nothing too dark, and nothing too bright or colorful.
Add some hearts to the background. You can do this using Photoshop’s Shape Tool (or your own design), or even just by cutting out some hearts from a paper and arranging them in the corner of your photo.
If you want to take it up a notch, add heart-shaped confetti or balloons too! This is all about adding a festive touch to the background and there’s no better way than with red and pink balloons that fill up your space with love vibes.
Balloons are an easy way to add color and texture to your photo. They can also be used as a prop, or they can serve as the backdrop for your photo. Consider using balloons in place of confetti, as balloons are more festive and will last longer than any type of paper or plastic confetti.
If you want to add balloons to your photos this Valentine’s Day, consider purchasing heart-shaped ones so that they are more fitting for the occasion!
If you’re going for a romantic look, try framing your photo with flowers or hearts. Get creative! If the object you’d like to capture is not very big, use an appropriately sized frame for it. If the photo is already small enough or if its subject takes up most of the space onscreen (like me), then don’t worry about it either way.
Whether you’re a holiday magpie or an absolute Valentine’s Day newbie, we hope these tips helped you get started on the perfect background for your photo shoot. Now go have fun playing with all of our suggestions and watch those pics turn out beautifully!
