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.
