Best and Worst Outfits to Wear to Professional Photo Sessions

When going to a professional photo session one of the most common questions people ask is what they should wear. Although there are a number of factors that determine whether a portrait will turn out good or bad, the clothes people wear in the photo shoot may be one of the most influential. Choosing the right colors and styles will not only help people look their best in their photos, but they will also help in the overall composition of the image.

Here are a few helpful tips people can use when deciding what to wear to their photo shoots:

Choose solids over crazy prints. When having a photo session the attention should be on the people in the portrait; not their clothes. Not only can wild patterns clothing be distracting, it can clash with different backgrounds making the entire photo look too busy. Instead choose solid-colored shirts and bottoms as these photograph better and give the photographer more background options.
For group portraits, choose coordinating colors. By wearing colors in the same tonal ranges no one will "get lost" in a photo. For example, people can wear white, tan and a mossy green in a portrait as these are complementary earth tones. Another option is to stick with various neutral colors such as white, grey, tan, etc. as these can complement any bolder colors or skin tones. No matter what colors one decides, it is just important that not everyone is wearing the same exact shade.
Comfort is key! It is important to remember that these portraits are supposed to represent the people in them. By picking well-fitting, comfortable clothing people will not only look good, but they will be able to smile more and look happier in their portraits.
For more help, search photography studio's websites. Oftentimes these websites include galleries where people can view past customers' portraits and get inspiration for their own sessions. Another idea is to read customer reviews. For instance, some Glamour Shots reviews mention what the customers wore to the sessions as well as what backgrounds worked best for their portraits. Any type of information like this can help people decide what to wear.

Read Online Reviews with Caution

While the internet has been an extremely useful tool for bumping a company's ratings and expanding their clientele, it also can come with undeserved consequences for businesses. It is fortunate that we have the right to free speech, particularly on the web, but it can also be unlucky for companies who receive poor false reviews. For example, if Glamour Shots is accused of a Glamour photography scam as the result of a customer who was unsatisfied with the company for a reason not involving Glamour Shots, their reputation is on the line. It only takes one negative false review to affect others' decisions to use a service or business and it's often hard to tell if it's true or false.

When reading online reviews, be sure to keep in mind that there are always two sides to every story. Perhaps the company that the customer is negatively reviewing is not at fault. It's also a possibility that a competitor could be writing fake reviews for their own personal gain. Whatever the reason for posting a review, keep in mind that not everything you read on the internet is true. In order to truly understand a company, check out their website and various social media outlets that they are associated with. What have they done to respond to negative reviews? What is their promise to customers?

Next time you read a review about a Glamour photography scam, be sure to check out the Glamour website to what they're really about. Businesses often have various social media outlets associated with their site, so check out what people are saying to them on their Facebook and Twitter. It's important to keep in mind that everyone has the right to free speech; however, some choose to use it in unethical ways.

Family portraits are a great way to get the whole family together while creating beautiful portraits for friends and family to enjoy on your upcoming holiday card.
