Have no clue about what to wear for your photo shoot? Here are some things you need to think about when choosing your outfits.

Choose COLOR

Color is one of the most important things to think about when choosing an outfit to be photographed in. It can change the tone of a shoot in a second. If someone has been wearing black and then they change into something of a vibrant color it changes the mood of the shoot instantly. Here are a few examples of excellent colorful outfits..

 

add some SHAPE

The shape of a garment is extremely important and may not look the same in a photograph. Remember, a photograph is 2D and real life is 3D which means we are able to see the garment at all angles. So many times I’ve seen a cool looking top or dress that looks great in person, but fails to translate well in a photograph. Not only that it just may not be the right shape for your body. This happens a lot with the latest trends. They may not be for everyone. Hello skinny jeans!

Try to find shapes that flatter your own body type. This may take a while to figure out so don’t give up. You will just have to try a lot of  different styles on. There’s no way around this, but when you find the styles that flatter your body you won’t have to guess anymore. Here are s few good examples of people wearing styles that look awesome on their body type. You will notice they are wearing the clothes and the clothes are flattering their bodies…

 

Throw in some SPARKLE!

There’s no explanation needed here. A sparkly-sequined dress, or top, is something that makes me smile and is always appropriate. Sequins for bunch? Sure! How can you not feel fab in a sequined dress? It’s not possible!
