I am a big component of wearing what makes you feel like a bad ass. The more confident you feel the more it shines with through the camera and final image. However, lets keep in mind we want to you to have as many photo options to choose from. Thus we suggest for clothing selection we suggest 3-4 outfits with different colors. One thing to keep in mind is the an environment can effect color and natural colors are always a great choice. Usually, white, grey, black, and red are great choices. However there some pieces of clothing I suggest for fitness photography are listed below:
– Men: Try to stick with basketball shorts when taking an upper body image. other types of pants can be joggers, a nice pair of tight jeans, leggings, or your competition trunks. When taking a lower body images we try to keep the high light on the legs to keep something tight…. leggings are a good option with a lose top that shows off the arms. Gym vest, sleeveless hoodies, tank tops, anything to highlight your arms as well as legs.
-Ladies: We want to highlight your physique as well. Sports bras are a great option to help show the back and core. Pants when photographing the upper body can be yoga pants, joggers, and leggings. Fore more legs and glutes we suggest leggings, tight compression shorts, and if you compete your competition bikini. Preferably we want to see you in what you work out in. However there are so many options so more options the better. Don’t for get to bring Gym vest, sleeveless hoodies, tank tops,or anything to highlight your arms as when photographing legs.
