WHAT ARE THE BEST COLORS FOR VIDEO? -WHAT TO WEAR ON CAMERA-

What are the Best Colors for Video? So many opinions and theories, but I don’t believe that anything is a concrete or absolute must in regards to what colors look best to wear on camera.

 

WHAT TO WEAR WHEN APPEARING ON CAMERA

 

The feeling of not knowing what to wear when appearing on camera can be an overwhelming experience.
 Additionally, not knowing what colors and clothing appropriate to wear in video can add further anxiety. This is why a question such as ‘ What color clothing is best to wear when being filmed ‘ is a common one, which I am often asked. Before you get started make sure you wear clothing that is consistent with your branding. 
The clothing you choose should also make you feel good about yourself. You will also want to consider wearing something that accurately represents your style. 

 

This video, WHAT ARE THE BEST COLORS FOR VIDEO, 

 
WILL GIVE YOU SOME SIMPLE GUIDELINES 
on choosing the best color scheme to wear for your next video shoot.

 

 There’s a palette of colors that look best on each of us and especially great on video. Ruby red, emerald green, and sapphire blue are highly saturated colors, so they don’t appear too bright or too muted against most backgrounds, and they look great with all different skin tones.
 
 White and Black can be tricky but definitely workable in many situations. Pastels always look great on camera. 
As a general rule, solid and rich colors look best on video and film. Try and avoid wearing bright white clothing which can dominate the screen. A safer color to wear would be a not-quite-white colors like light beige and light grey. Also, very pale colors may work better.
 
Two important notes: 1: Do NOT wear clothing with stripes or busy patterns. This will create a distracting effect known as Moire and can cause you tons of aggravation. 
2: Do NOT wear green when filming in front of a green screen. This will cause that part of your body which is clothed in green, to literally disappear when the green background is removed. 

 

But most importantly is the message you are trying to convey.  You may be wearing the perfect color, but if you are not honestly sharing valuable information, then you will not be approachable and your audience will not be engaged. 

 

Be comfortable with the clothes you are wearing. Know that they are portraying you in a visual and emotional way. Your surroundings, background, jewelry and other accessories are all important components that make up your overall image , branding, and message.
