When getting portraits taken, it is always fun to try to incorporate a theme of some sort. Some families opt for backgrounds of tropical vacation areas while others might choose one that is seasonally appropriate. Why not stand
out and make this year's portraits memorable with 1950s backdrops? They are so unique you will feel like the coolest cats in town, and the vintage appeal will make it so fun to dress for the occasion.
If the portrait is going to be focused on all girls, they will look so cute in front of 1950s backdrops depicting the pink-clad milkshake counter at a retro diner. Adding in some funky hair, vintage skirts and fun makeup will make this photo shoot not only fun but also memorable. In addition, the pink, comfortable seats, pink walls, and checkered floor of the diner scene will make the photo extra girly.
There are 1950s backdrops which are appropriate and fun for portraits of all boys, too! What guy does not appreciate a good vintage car in powder blue or candy apple red? Whether you choose an image of an old Cadillac parked outside a diner or pulled in at the drive-in, images of vintage cars are retro and masculine. Moreover, it is fun for anyone to pretend to pose in front of an old souped-up car!
Vintage signs are fun for anyone to pose in front of -- even a family portrait! Let these photographic backgrounds take you to another place and time when posing in front of a retro sign for Route 66. Flashing neon diner signs with colorful arrows and bright lights are also great backgrounds which are reminiscent of the past. They are great for simply incorporating the 50's vibe into a photo in a way that is gender-neutral and fun for everyone.
Nothing says "I love rock and roll" like a portrait in front of a jukebox with some appropriate 1950s props. These fun backdrops will get you moving and grooving in a portrait that will stand out among the rest. Pretending you are rocking out to old rock and roll or doo-wop music, the portrait will always remind you of fun times. The bright and shiny neon lights of the music machines are very retro and will create a fun theme and appeal to the photo.
Using 1950s backdrops to create a fun-loving and unique theme for a portrait is a great idea for family or friend photos. They are so unlike any other that they will surely be remembered for years to come. The retro designs make it fun to get into character and even dress up in costume for the picture! No matter what, these portraits are sure to be one in a million and completely unforgettable.
