How to Photograph Children : Proper Attire for Children’s Portrait


Hello, my name is Ed Cody and on behalf of
ExpertVillage.com, I am going to talk to you today about your choice of clothing for good
children’s portraiture. You know you may have that really neat suit that uncle Bill
gave you with the stripes and the dots and all of that, forget it. It is good to wear
when he is coming over, but other than that, leave it in the closet. What you are looking
for is solid colors, primary colors to kind of liven up the scene or whites are real good,
but just something nice and solid. The solid colors if you can do that, then you are going
to mainly look at what your child’s facial expressions are giving you, the color of the
hair, the style of the hair and your eyes are not going to be drawn to what they are
wearing. So once again, keep the clothing simple, keep it timeless and you will enjoy
that really well. Forget all of those things like the logos, the schools, maybe some stripes
and polka dots, leave that away for playtime. For good timeless portraits, stick to bright
solid colors. If you do that, I think that you will find that your prints will all of
a sudden start looking a lot better for you and you will start enjoying how your child
looks.
