When it comes to dressing for a photoshoot there are no definitive dress rules to follow as it is more about feeling right in your look, yet here are some thoughts to keep in mind when choosing your outfit.
1. What is my goal?
2. Am I being me?
Wearing a style that you have never worn before will not make you feel great which will show in your photographs. Such as wearing tailored clothing when your style has always been rocker chic will not provide the best outcome. Yet wearing a style that you know looks great and is your personality will give you confidence and that will be conveyed in the final photo’s. Always be true to yourself!
3. Am I comfortable?
4. Am I complimenting my complexion?
Do not stay completely in your comfort zone when it comes to deciding what to wear, you want to make the most of this photo shoot after all. Yet always choose colors that compliment your skin tone and hair color and make you stand out from the image in the background.
5. Color is key.
Even If you are opting for black and white photographs it is still important to wear color as this will add depth, contrast and harmony to the end result.
6. Get the right second opinion.
