In winter, it’s a good time to take pictures of the snowscape of Hanfu. However, we believe that everyone will encounter the same problem when taking photos: “Stiff posture when taking pictures” (well, this problem may exist in any season).
But! Don’t worry, we have found some super easy-to-use winter Hanfu snow props for you.
How can you make a snow scene without an oil paper umbrella? It’s not only 100% utilized when taking a picture, but also can block the wind when you are frozen for beauty. And no matter how you shoot it, it will be super artistic conception.
- Open the umbrella: open the umbrella, but don’t fully support it. Keep it half-open, and just look at the umbrella naturally.
- Support umbrella: open the umbrella, support it flat or tilt it slightly.
- Back image: put the open umbrella behind your shoulder.
- Holding umbrella: close the umbrella, hold it in front of your chest, and pay attention to relaxation.
Mili: 幕篱; an ancient hat for women to cover their faces when they go out.
When taking Hanfu photos, you will also encounter the situation that it is not natural to look directly at the lens. At this time, it’s good to take the Mili. It not only has a hazy mood but also can reduce the tension of the camera.
- Hand support: naturally hold the brim with one hand.
- Half lifting: try half lifting the veil and take a close-up picture of half-face or eyes.
- Back image: wear Mili or carry it behind you and take a back image.
Lantern / Lighting props
Lanterns are also very suitable for taking pictures of Hanfu snow scenes. They can have a different mood in the snow. Especially at night, the lantern can be called a camera artifact. Besides, they are friendly to posture, which can be put aside or held on the hand.
Flower / Tree
When photographing snow scenery, you can choose some flowers/branches as props, such as red plum, pine branches, etc., which can be very beautiful if you hold them in your hands at will.
Warm hand equipment
Many Tongpao likes to take photos of Hanfu with fans in winter, but they always feel out of season. Therefore, it is more suitable for hand warming equipment such as a small hand stove. You can feel the feeling of winter if you hold your hand casually.
If you have a cat/dog/rabbit and other small animals at home, you can also be a good partner for taking photos. Not only very cute but also easy to capture the warm moment. Of course, we must pay attention to the safety and warmth of small animals when shooting the outdoor scenes.
Tea set / Chessboard / Food box
Take a picture of the outdoor scene in winter, it would be better if you could meet buildings like pavilions. At this time, put out your tea set, set a chessboard, you can easily create an atmosphere, and have mutual movement.
Books and letters
This kind of props is the same. They can not only create a strong literati atmosphere but also create a sense of story according to the needs of the plot. For example, reading in the cold winter can have a sense of hardship, and letters in the snow can have a sense of sadness.
Love martial arts friends, weapons and props is your only choice. However, if you want to take a picture of the location, you should pay attention to safety and whether you can take public transport or not.
Masks can create a very good sense of story. Masks can play a big role in taking pictures together.
In the beginning, we can learn from these good photography works, but more importantly, we need according to the actual scene to take good Hanfu photos.
