There are many ways to find out about the best colours that photograph well in a fashion shoot. Some of the most obvious ways include asking the photographer, which is what I always do. However, it can be hard to ask the right questions and get the right answers, so the next best thing is to search around and find out about other people’s opinions on the matter. Luckily, there is an online community dedicated solely to the matter of fashion photos and you can learn from all of these opinions.
It’s really important that you remember that colour doesn’t necessarily mean good. You also need to consider the lighting of the shot, how it will look on the model and whether or not the clothes will contrast. There are many reasons why someone would choose a particular shade of colour. For example, if the shot requires the model to stand out and draw attention to herself, then pink or blue will always be popular colours for this. If the person taking the photo wants to make the model stand out but not necessarily wear the colour, then she would be advised to opt for light brown, beige, peach and tan. Again, light yellow and red will never look good in such a situation, so look around to see what other colours are used.
The best colours that photograph well in a fashion shoot will depend on the situation. There are certain looks that look good in certain situations and others that don’t. If you are not sure whether you should wear a particular shade, then ask yourself if you would choose to wear it for a formal or informal event. This will give you an idea as to what the colour will look good on and it can also help you see whether or not it would look good in photographs.
