Any pastel color would work. The problem with white, especially with black,
is it creates a high-contrast print, which will affect how your face
portrays in the final image. If you wear a white blouse, try a light grey
sweater over it to tone down the white. Best of all, if you are using a
professional photographer to shoot your portrait, ask him/her what you
should wear.

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? Scarf?


advice? I'm clutching here.

 
Regards,
Becca
