We know this can be a big consideration for those about to sit in front of our camera, so here are some things to ponder:
*We usually recommend against hats. They will block the light for your eyes and are not recommended.
*Avoid small print or weaves. It can shimmer on camera and be distracting. This is most severe in ties and scarves.
*Avoid shirts with writing. The writing can appear to be a comment on your interview.
*Avoid big distracting jewelry. We will be looking at the shiny things and not your eyes.
*Avoid Noisy bracelets. This is a biggie because the noise they make will not be apparent until we edit.
*Blue is best color on video, Generally red is worst. Black and white are fine (in my opinion.)
*Generally, it's better to avoid glasses if you can (if you wear contacts). This is not a big deal, but without glasses, we have more options for lighting and interview locations.
