I’ve always wanted to try and shoot confettiimages! They are fun, whimsical, colourful, and I knew my kids would love them. And let’s face it…for most of us, photo sessions need to be fun for our kids to participate willingly!
The end result I was going for was my daughter softly blowing the confetti towards the camera, and I think we nailed it!

What You’ll Need
Your Camera (hehe!)
Confetti (I used coloured circles)
A plain background/wall. I used thunder grey background paper, but a plain wall will be fine
Being winter, we chose to shoot the confetti images inside relying on window light. I set up in front of a large window and used my thunder grey backdrop as I knew the colour would pop against it.
You don’t need a professional backdrop…a plain wall will look great. If I were doing this in warmer weather, I would have used a plain wall in our foyer with the door open to let in light or my patio wall outside. But as it were, I needed to shoot in a position in the house that needed the backdrop to avoid the surrounding clutter.
Great post! Loved the information and how cute these photos turned out!!
How did you blow the confetti? Did someone drop it? Or did the little girl blow it from her hands? Or both?
Did you have your camera on a trips or were you hand holding it?
Thanks so much! Cheerio, Mee
Yes so she blew them herself, and it took a few goes and me explaining to do it softly, but high enough that it blew towards the camera.. and all handheld, as I am too lazy to set my tripod up!
Another shot we did a few times was her throwing the confetti in the air, it fell in a cool way around her and was fun!
Hi, what focus setting did you use please?
