What to wear for a portrait
Video Series – Portrait Clothing Choices – What to wear for a portrait
In previous videos we covered what to wear for your portrait after you have selected the background, where you want to hang your personal wall portrait or if you want a black and white portrait. What if you know what you want to wear, but haven’t decided on anything else? Barbara will address that here.
For example, this client knew that her family wanted to wear navy and kaki. When we got to McCrillis Gardens it was my job to pick the background. We discussed ahead of time that the portrait would be displayed over the fireplace on a brick wall. I chose this light filled green background. There are multiple shades of green, lots of depth and interesting leaf patterns because of the dappled sunlight. So even though there was a fantastic gazebo in this little glen I knew it would be too busy once it was on the stone wall.
