Clothing Tips & Suggestions For portraits

Memorable portraits take careful planning, and the clothing you choose is very important to your portrait's success. When one or more people are to appear in the portrait, or when a special stylistic effect is desired, clothing and prop choices can make or break a portrait. These guidelines will help you to make important decisions about your clothing and style of your artwork. ** Clothing for Individuals (Business & Casual)**

The goal of any fine portrait is to direct the viewer's eye to the face in the portrait. All the other elements should be secondary. For individuals, simple long-sleeved garments in medium to dark tones of brown, gray, burgundy, green or blue are pleasing choices when photographed against a medium or dark background.

Clothing for Small Groups or Couples

Couples or small groups should choose simple garments within the same tonal ranges. When subjects appear in a mixture of light and dark tones together, there is a visual confusion - as the light color comes forward, and the dark color recedes. When this happens, one person becomes dominant and appears heavier than in reality.

Clothing for Families

In a family group, proper clothing coordination is critical. When decorating a home, a major concern is to coordinate the colors and tones of the walls, carpets, drapes, and furniture. Similar coordination is necessary when selecting clothing for a group portrait. Choose clothing in the same tonal ranges so that no single member of the family stand out because the clothing is too light or bright as compared to the rest of the group.

Creating Style and Personality

Our goal is to create portraiture as individual as the subjects we photograph. Our tools include various styles, techniques, and settings that make each portrait a unique artwork.

Skin Tone Considerations

Whether working with light or dark complexions, the objective always is for the face to dominate the portrait. Accordingly, skin highlights must be the lightest, brightest or most intense areas of the portrait. So when a medium to dark background is used, all subjects photograph best in the medium to dark tones, whatever the skin tone.Other tips for preparing- Turtle necks or V-necks are flattering provided that neither is exaggerated in style. Avoid very wide or particularly deep V-neck garments or bulky cowl neck sweaters that completely hide the neck.

-For close-up portraits, long sleeves are essential for teens and adults, as bare arms call attention to themselves and will overpower the face.

-Women being photographed in full length should wear long skirts, pants or dark stocking in order to keep the eye from being directed toward the legs and away from the face.

-If feet are to show in the portrait, assure that shoes and stocking are in the keeping with the visual intent of the portrait. 

-Men should be clean-shaven or facial hair should be carefully groomed, with their hair cut about one week before the portrait session. Women should be photographed whenever they are happiest with their hair in relation to the time it is styled.

A dynamic business portrait is a great way to make a first impression to a new client.
