Last week was an exciting day for me, not only did I have to direct a commercial for CPAP Store USA but also was asked to make a guest appearance.
The goal of your video is to engage your audience, your wardrobe choices should help you look your best and avoid distracting your viewers from the useful information you’re sharing or the hard-to-understand concepts you’re trying to explain. A powerful and easy way to meet your objectives and look great is by using color to your advantage. Here are some tips you can implement today to look great on camera.
Here are some tips you can implement today to look great on camera. Wear jewel tones near your face and avoid pastels. Be careful with black though. Avoid shiny fabrics and try to stay in style. Remember, your background color matters.
What you wear on-camera is very important, and there are some cardinal rules that you should follow when establishing the wardrobe for that particular scene –pattern, color, contrast and scene.
One of the major considerations is when choosing an on-camera outfit is its shape and fit. Video does tend to make us look at least ten pounds heavier and that is because in the video monitor, you see only the character. Since there is nothing else to make that character look smaller thus the character looks bigger. Does that make sense? For this reason, it’s important you make sure whatever you choose to wear emphasizes on the shape and the waist. Also opt for a leaner look and avoid looking wide. Remember, shapeless clothing will make you look bigger and lumpier on camera.
Also, keep in mind that, if you are shooting a scene, the character you want to project will dictate the type of clothing you will wear. So, when I was filming for CPAP Store USA I was going for a casual-chic-professional look. I styled myself in a pair of light-colored ripped jeans with see-through heels, a conservative white collar button shirt with light make up and a high ponytail.
