Dressing for presentations and dressing for on camera may seem like they are one in the same. However, depending on what you are filming, they can be very different. While you want to make sure you look professional for both in-person presentations and on camera trainings, there are other factors to think about when dressing for being on camera.
Patterns: Patterns are something to pay close attention to when filming. You want to avoid wearing any type of clothing that has small checks or narrow stripes. Avoiding those types of clothing will help avoid the moiré effect, which is the wavy/shimmering look on clothing. This can be incredibly distracting to the viewer and ultimately looks like something that went wrong during filming. Please note that the moiré effect is not something you can simply “fix” in post production either. So be sure to avoid small checks or narrow stripes from the start to avoid having to revisit the studio for the same training video.
