Enhance your image: how to choose the right colour of clothing for your photos

Enhance your image: how to choose the right colour of clothing for your photos

When it comes to a photo shoot for your book, the choice of clothing is a key factor in achieving a professional and attractive image. One of the most important aspects to take into account is the colour of the clothes you are going to wear. Here are some tips on how to choose the right colour for your photos:

  • Know your skin tone: Your skin colour can be warm or cool, and this affects your choice of clothing colours. If you have warm skin, earth tones, beige, orange or gold will suit you, while if you have cool skin, pastels, pink, blue or white will suit you better.
  • Combine complementary colours: When choosing clothes, keep in mind that complementary colours enhance each other. For example, if you have blue eyes, orange in your clothes will make you stand out more. If you have green eyes, red will flatter you.
  • Avoid black and white: Although black and white are classic colours that never go out of style, they can be a bit boring on a photo shoot. Also, white can be too bright and black can make you look paler in photos.
  • Don't dress up: It is important that the clothes you wear represent you and that you don't look dressed up. For example, if you don't normally wear bohemian style clothes, don't try to wear a long flowery dress to a photo shoot. If you feel comfortable and confident in the clothes you wear, it will show in the photos.

In short, the choice of colour of the clothes you wear on a photo shoot is a key factor in achieving a professional and attractive image. Consider your skin tone, combine complementary colours, avoid black and white, and don't dress up. With these tips, you will be able to enhance your image and achieve spectacular photos.

Tips for choosing the perfect outfit for your book shoot

  • Know the purpose of the photo book: Before choosing your clothes, it is important to know what the photo book will be used for. If it is for a fashion casting, for example, you should choose clothes that show your style and personality, whereas if it is for an actors' book, you should opt for more neutral clothes that allow you to play different characters.
  • Choose colours that suit you: When choosing clothes for your photo shoot, consider the colours that suit you best. If you are unsure, you can search online for a colour guide that will help you determine which colours suit you best for your skin tone and hair.
  • Don't wear brightly printed clothes: Prints can distract attention away from you and your face, so it's best to avoid them or wear them sparingly.

  • Try different options before you decide: Before the photo shoot, it is advisable to try different clothing options to see which one makes you feel more comfortable and fits you better. This will allow you to be confident in your choice and be more relaxed during the shoot.
  • Prepare several outfits: It is recommended that you bring several outfits to your photo shoot to give you variety and options. This will allow you to change outfits and have different looks in the photos.
  • Don't forget the accessories: Accessories can complement your look and add a special touch to your photos. However, it is important not to overuse them and choose them carefully so that they do not distract attention from you and your face.
  • Avoid clothing with highly visible branding or logos: Clothing with highly visible branding or logos can distract attention from you and your face in photos. It is better to opt for unbranded clothing or clothing with more discreet logos.
  • Choose clothes according to the location and theme of the photo shoot: If the photo shoot will take place in a specific location or has a particular theme, it is recommended that you choose clothes that fit that location or theme. This will make the photos look more coherent and professional.
