Q. What should I wear?
Think classic. Remember you will be in black robes and your collars, pants, longer dresses and shoes will be seen when walking across the stage.
Women should wear professional blouses, dresses or suits in solid colors or with very light patterns in the material.
Plain colors are your best choice. Patterns or prints distract and date your photo. Choose mid-tone colors in blue, green, wine and purple because they are universally flattering. Avoid wearing tops in flesh tones as they will blend your face into your clothes.
Don’t wear all black or all white. Even though black is slimming, neutral tones like gray or light pastels like lilac or blue are good options. The camera will boost contrast. White is a bad choice because it can be too visually overwhelming and “blind” the viewer.
Men should wear dark colors, such as grey or navy blue. Bold patterns and colors, as well as shiny ties, detract from the face and can look unprofessional. Don’t wear all black or all white. The camera will boost contrast. White is a bad choice because it can be too visually overwhelming and “blind” the viewer.
If you don’t wear a tie, it’s best to wear a sweater or jacket or some other kind of layer to break up your outfit to stop you from looking like a floating head!
Q. How should I look?
Q. How should I wear my hair?
Don’t dye or cut your hair right before the shoot. Some shades of freshly dyed hair can look too vibrant and usually dull down about 1-2 weeks later.
Q. Do I get to keep my photos?
