What Do I Wear For A Video Shoot?

Are you confused by what to wear for your video shoot? You’re not alone. Everyone I chat with about producing their shoot, first asks me the same thing. What do I wear?

Sometimes what you think looks good on you, may or may not be good for a video shoot.

Just because it’s expensive or trendy, a bright color or pattern doesn’t mean it’s the right fit for video.

Brief do’s and don’ts for what to wear on your video shoot.

STRIPES are a don’t. Don’t wear stripes for your shoot. They can be disruptive in the technical aspect of the video and just don’t work.

PATTERNS, well it all depends. Some patterns can work out beautifully, and some look confusing. What’s the difference you ask? Good question. Send them over and let my expert eye have a look. Just like stripes, some patterns not only don’t work with the technical aspect of video, but also just make you dizzy and distract from the subject.
