A word about clothing choice

The best portraits take careful planning. The clothing you choose is very important for your portraitís success. Remember that the face(s) are the most important part of your portrait. When you look at your finished portrait your attention should go directly to the face(s). All other elements should be secondary. Simple long sleeved clothing in medium to dark colors generally work best with medium to dark backgrounds. (Darker colors are also more slimming) Lighter backgrounds work well with lighter colored clothing. When choosing clothing for a group, keep all the clothing in the same tonal ranges so that no one member of the group stands out. Never assume slacks or shoes wonít show. Doing so may limit posing options for your group.
