A few things about clothing to be kept in mind are:
- Avoid seasonal clothes.
- Wear clothes that accentuate your best features.
- Avoid colors that make you look dull.
- Avoid clothes with huge patterns and logos.
The clothes must also be chosen, keeping the style you prefer in mind. Be it formals, casuals, or everyday clothes, make sure you do not face the camera if you feel your dress is a transparent, or your skirt is a little too short. Your discomfort will show in the photograph, and trust me, the result would not be nice at all.
When it comes to color-scheming your clothes, let us first talk about multiple colors. Color coordination is of utmost importance, as it holds the key to a near-perfect click. The colors that you choose should go well with each other, and must enhance your features. Unless it is a close-up, avoid wearing too much brights.
If you wish to focus on a particular person, the best way to do it, is the through clothes. In the photograph above, the lady in the center is wearing bright clothes, while the people surrounding her are in subtle tones of gray and blue. Following the same cue, you can focus on your grandfather, or your newborn, towards whom you wish to direct attention.
If you wish to have a balanced attention on all the people in the photograph, do it by maintaining the colors and textures. In the picture above, all the three beautiful ladies receive equal attention due to the deep color tones, and the cloth texture. The focus is maintained on their faces, which definitely makes the photograph very appealing.
