How you will look on camera
- Most of the time you will be shown from the rib cage up or shoulders up.
- You will likely have one camera angle that captures your entire figure while you are seated in a chair that will help you have your best posture.
How to choose your wardrobe

house. You want to look your best, but this is relaxed, so you should also be comfortable.
- Men may wear sport coats but should not feel pressure to have a full suit or wear
a tie. Polos, sweaters, vests, pull-overs.
- Women if you wear a skirt or a dress, make sure that it is comfortable. Don’t
choose anything that you will be self conscious about the camera angles.
- Synthetic fabrics designed to repel rain should be avoided because they add
unnecessary noise into microphones.
- Don’t wear anything that will become too warm and cause you to sweat. The
temperature is about 70° but depending on several factors (lights equipment) the
room may become warmer.
- Avoid wearing all black or all white.
- Avoid wearing red or bright yellow.
- Avoid wearing patterns (fine lines and stripes,
- Wear what you really enjoy wearing. Don’t be bashful, it is often
valuable because of who gave it to you, or occasions you wore it to.
