What to wear on a studio photoshoot.

A studio portrait photoshoot has a very different look to an outdoor one, and therefore the rules of what to wear are different too!

Of course the reason for your photoshoot is something to keep in mind wether it is a family portrait session or headshot for your business. However if you keep these points in mind you won't go wrong!

Im going to keep it short and sweet for you.

1) Always check with me before you wear white.

Now I love the look of a crisp white shirt and some jeans, its the perfect laid back yet chic look and look great in a black and white photograph, however if we have a miscommunication and I've turned up with my white background and you've turned up in your white shirt then according to the laws of exposure either the background or your shirt is going to look a dirty grey.

2) Much the same as an outdoor photoshoot please stay away from patterns, especially if it's a group shot, clashing patterns looks busy and unappealing.

3) Make sure there are no colour clashes. A good rule of thumb so you all look cohesive is to pick an accent colour and all wear it somehow. For e.g blue, one has blue jeans, another a blue top the other a blue scarf. It ties you all in without being overly matchy 

4) Make sure your socks match too! Weird I know but I may ask you to take off your shoes or your socks so grubby marks are not left on the paper background so make sure you wear a neutral sock just in case!

There you go! Keep these simple rules in mind for your family or business photoshoot and your photographs will look cohesive and elegant.
