Everybody loves fairytale stories-isn't it? If you liked it as a child too, you can always reminisce about those amazing feelings associated with your childhood and have your audience do the same, by clicking fairytale photographs. Such photos turn magical stories into reality. Through fairytale photos, photographers can retell the commonly known fairytale stories, or simply evoke the emotions from childhood in the minds of the audience. In this article, you will learn about various techniques of fairytale photography that will be immensely useful for you. 

4 Best Ways To Create Magical Fairytale Photos

Use The Right Costumes

 

 

Fairytale characters never wear clothes like us. Their costumes make a difference. Sometimes, it's the costume that we identify a character in a known story. It becomes more significant than other elements- like Cinderella's ball gown. When you try to tell a fairytale story through your photos, you have no other stronger way to distinguish between the hero-heroin and the villain apart from their costume. Of course, the expression of the model would say it all, but no one can deny that it's the costume that attracts the audience's attention first.

Use Props

 

Props and costumes make the photo appear 'Fairytale-like'. Props build the scene in this kind of photograph. Fairytales are full of props- from pumpkin carriages to red hooded cloaks! If you want to communicate a beautiful fairytale with the audience, you have to use well-selected props too. You can either use real props or digitally create them. Some of the most commonly used props that you can consider using too are beds covered with vines and flowers, lanterns, and mirrors. 

Create A Magical Environment 

 

Fairytale and magic are intertwined. In the fairytale photos, you get the scope to create a dream world. You can do so by adding well-known elements of the fairytale stories, natural elements, or magically beautiful landscapes. Usually, photographers choose to shoot fairytale photographs outdoors, especially on riversides or in forests. You can also create the entire magical land digitally using post-processing software like Photoshop or Lightroom. You need to capture the whole scene in your imagination first- and then plan every detail vigorously to give life to it. 

Include Magical Creatures In Your Photos

 

 

Fairytales remain incomplete without the introduction of imaginary creatures like unicorns, dragons, Mermaids, or Elves. They are the characteristic elements of a fairytale. Like the props, the introduction of these creatures will instantly make your photos 'magical'. So you should place them in your photo during the post, along with the model. Some photographers like to emphasize more on them, more and make them the central object, placed against a dreamy natural background. 

Every photographer tells a story through their photographs. When you decide to tell a fairytale through your photos it becomes extra challenging. You need to blend imagination with the knowledge of photography and add creativity to it- to produce a perfect fairytale photograph. If you have the right vision and proper planning, you would surely be able to do that. Now, it's your turn to take your audience to their childhood with stunning fairytale photos!!
