Watch me build my Snowtime Shoot Set-up from scratch!
This shoot was for a local toddler's play group, who absolutely loved the indoor snowballs to throw around! And the parents were very impressed with the scene too!
From start to finish putting all the pieces together in this video took me roughly 1 hour and 20 minutes, but it was totally worth it.
Snow Scene Elements:
Snowflakes: Made from white printer paper, in various origami and cutting techniques, with added glitter. Stuck to the plain cloth backdrop with double sided tape, with larger snowflakes hung with clear thread.
Presents: Just boxes wrapped up!
Snow floor: Wadding, or as they are branded around chrismtas 'snow blankets.' This was laid over a single cream bedsheet, and another cream blanket to give a bit of a soft feel for the kids.
Adding cushions under the 'snow' gives a bit of variety and a soft landing if any kid's get too excited, or if you get a young baby who can't sit up - they're great for propping!
Snowey hills in the background:
A small additionbut it adds to the effect in a big way! These are just cardboard shapes cut out, stuck with white paper and VA glue, and sprinkled with fake snow confetti.
Natural light from a large window at the left of the room, and a large silver reflector at the front, right side of the set to bounce light back onto little faces.
