Photography:: What to wear to your photo shoot!
What to wear for a family photo shoot any time of year. These guidelines are for families but good for individuals as well. The main tip is to coordinate your colors rather than everyone wearing the same, one color. Earth tones are great, so are bold bright colors. Solid black should (generally) be avoided. White and pastels are great for the beach or a light background but (generally) should be avoided otherwise. Avoid loud, larger patterns. Break up bold patterns and plaids with a jacket or scarf. Avoid clothes with logos or words. The idea is for FACES to be the first thing you notice, not the clothes, and certainly not a large expanse of a single color. Speaking of a large expanse of color... skin. If an expanse of skin is larger than your face, it will demand more attention in the portrait. Avoid low cut tops. Long sleeves or 3/4 length look best.
