How To: Make Glowing Cloud Lights For Your Next Creative Photoshoot

HOW TO MAKE GLOWING CLOUD LIGHTS FOR YOUR CREATIVE PHOTOSHOOT ๐ŸŒซ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’›

Lockdown craziness aside, I have really been loving all of the extra time to be creative these last 9 months. I really enjoy making fun things just for the sake of it, without worrying about any client feedback! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Last week, I created glowing cloud lights for an at-home birthday photoshoot. Making a cloud light is such an easy project and it’s a great way to add some visual interest to a room or magic to your next photoshoot!

Here’s how I did it:

Supplies You’ll Need:

  • paper lanterns
  • glue gun + glue
  • cotton or pillow fluff
  • fishing wire & wall tacks
  • string lights
  • Background sheet (optional)

๐Ÿฆ„ I got an array of white paper lanterns, in various sizes. I ordered them online, but you can find them at party stores or dollar/pound stores.

๐Ÿ’›I got some pillow fluff, a glue gun, and glue.

โ˜I popped open the lanterns, put a little bit of hot glue on it at a time, and then a bit of fluff at a time. Be careful not to burn yourself when pressing fluff down onto the glue. Repeat for each cloud.

๐ŸŒธI got some battery operated twinkly lights to hang in each cloud. I found that you need to use 3 for the bigger clouds, so they really glow. I added a black sheet behind the clouds to make the glow more prominent.

๐Ÿ˜˜I got a tall person to hang these for me with fishing wire and pins. Thanks Nik.

๐Ÿ“ธGet ready for some practice shots! I used a tripod and then tried natural light and darkness to find the vibe I wanted. I also tried holding up some cloud fluff in front of the camera for extra fun.

๐ŸŒˆIf you want to, use photoshop or photo editing apps to boost the colours and make it even more fun! I added a fake galaxy background and color overlays to mine! Here are my finished photos!

๐ŸŽ‰TADA- youโ€™re done! Post and/or enjoy!

SPOT YOU SOON,
