Never been asked this before, but I do know that blue is the most
psychologically pleasing color of the spectrum.
With that in mind, I suggest wearing something with blue (not overpowering, but
subtle). Perhaps a (borrowed) Navy Blue blazer?

Subject: professional portraits
I have to get a portrait taken for a book credit for a book I'm working on. I'm
not sure why they want to spotlight the copyeditor - I'm not the one putting
together the package, I'll just be making sure the contributions are consistent
to format and have no egregious proofreading errors (I'm not the greatest
proofreader in the world).
I assume business attire. What I've got is a black interviewing suit, and I
imagine a white blouse is most appropriate and will reproduce better? or should
I go with something softer for a blouse? I've got a pink blouse with grey
pinstripes oxford that I've worn with the black suit on interviews, because I
didn't want to look too stark.
I don't usually wear makeup or jewelry; should I wear some for the photograph?
advice? I'm clutching here.
There's no such thing as useless information; only information I haven't used
