When people are going to take a corporate headshot, they might be worried and confused about what they need to wear and is it appropriate or not. According to our experiences of photographing,Corporate Headshot Pro is here to share the opinions and tips of clothing preparation of corporate headshot shooting.
Clothing recommendations for a headshot session:
Pick your favorite suit that fits you well and is preferably a classic dark color like navy blue or gray. Choose a suit that doesn't bunch up when you button it or sit down in it. In addition, your shirt and tie should match each other and the suit.
Don't choose anything with bold, distracting patterns or colors:
Clothing with tight grids or a small herringbone pattern can have a moiré pattern effect on camera, so stay away from grid-like patterns. Thin stripes, which are a little further apart, are fine . Ties look better when their tone lands between the suit and the shirt, so a light shirt, a dark suit, and a tie in a shade somewhere between them. Some ties are too shiny. Please try to stay away from really reflective, shiny silk ties.
If you don't wear a tie, choose a non-white shirt if it is possible:
White shirts without a jacket and tie to break them up can lose details in the color and folds. And if you wear a button-down shirt, you should wear a jacket or a sweater to layer the look. If not, choose a dark-color-shirt or something with pockets or details to avoid it looking like a head floating on a blank, boxy shirt, and unbutton a button or two, or choose one without a collar and a medium or low neckline. And make sure we can't see your undershirt beneath the button-down shirt: wear a v-neck or no undershirt at all.
Choose a professional suit or outfit that has a classic look:
You shouldn’t be able to tell what decade it is in the photo. Therefore, don’t choose anything with bold, distracting patterns or colors, unless you wear a blazer or sweater to layer the pattern.
Clothing with tight grids or a small herringbone pattern can have a moiré pattern effect on camera, so stay away from grid-like patterns. Thin stripes are okay.
Try not to wear stark white clothing:
Try not to wear stark white clothing, unless it’s under something: such as a suit jacket, cardigan, or sweater. V-necks accentuate the neckline and generally look great on women. Just don’t choose something with too low of a neckline: no cleavage. No turtlenecks. They tend to make people look like they have no neck at all in photos.
Stay away from short sleeves or tank tops:
Executive headshots look better without bare arms, but it can work for a model's comp card or an actor/entertainer headshot.
To conclude, clothing is an important factor that can affect the consequence of your corporate headshot looks. Please read the article carefully and follow the instructions to dress up for your corporate headshot shooting.
