How to Look and Feel Good in Front of a TV Camera| What to Wear on TV
TV screen output can be different from the actual. Lights and colours may create distractions or dull moments. Human gestures affect audience impact. Every detail and element of the outfit should be well-planned.
Tips on what to do or wear in front of the camera
- Choose solid colours and tones that complement your skin colour and the background. Solid colour has the same colour all over. It is plain and lacks patterns.
- Wear comfortable clothes. Light or cotton clothes are great. Any discomfort shows up on the face. Feeling good and comfortable is the key.
- High Definition TV captures small details. Oily skin is exaggerated on the screen. Foundation and face powder lightens up faces and moods.
- Look for glare-proof glasses that suit your face shape. Ordinary glass creates a reflection on the camera.
- Makeup should look natural. Wearing the right makeup enhances skin tone from the studio lighting.
- Jewellery should be congruent to your skin tone and outfit. Flashy earrings, necklaces and bracelets are distracting on camera.
Scopophobia, Blushing and Butterflies in the Stomach
It is normal to get nervous. Even celebrities can experience butterflies in their stomachs. The secret is to breathe and relax. Refine your movements. Compose your thoughts. Scopophobia is a condition and it is the fear of being stared at. This can be helped with hypnotherapy and other calming techniques. Blushing is something that can also be helped with hypnotherapy.
Calm your Nerves
Balanced breathing to the slow count of 4 or 5 breaths in and the same out. Bring the air deep down into the belly and bring your awareness to the breath as you do this for 4 or 5 minutes. This calms any nerves.
Remind yourself. You have a purpose. Act naturally. Be yourself. Avoid smiling the whole time. Refine your gestures and facial expressions. Use facial expressions and gestures with volition.
Practice Makes Perfect
Grab your phone. Record, save, and review your videos. Assess your styles you want to improve.
In front of the camera, we "dress to impress”. Moreover as ,connection is core human need it builds rapport and “connection” with the TV audience.
NEVER do or wear in front of the camera
- Extreme colours may be difficult to balance for the camera. These colours are primary or complementary with high saturations. Examples are white, black, red, green, and etc.
- Hot Colours and Shocking Colours are distractive on a monitor. Avoid hot pink, yellow, and the like.
- Don't wear anything that has a brand name. A company can sue you for trademark rights.
- Patterns like dots and stripes cause headaches to the viewers. Lacy garments can create a "swarm of bees effect". Repetitive details generate visual waves and strobing on the camera. Experts call these Moire Effects.
Coming late on a taping show is a disaster. — Do's and Don'ts on TV
- Worn shirts, ripped jeans, wrinkled garments, too-large clothes, and all sloppy dresses are noticeable on a high-definition screen. Chaotic details can catch attention and shift the theme of the show.
- Do not wear an uncomfortable and heavy clothing. Being uncomfortable affects your mood in the show. In the studio, lights can be scorching. Pick out the best clothes that make you breathe and less perspire.
- Avoid wearing extremely short skirts and dresses. Consider the length of your garments. Skirts get shorter when sitting. Tight outfits might show off parts of your body when standing. Missing buttons and any maintenance defects will be annoying for you to see later on. Double-check and fit what you are going to wear before the show.
- Keep away from anything that reflects. Bring non-glossy lipstick, non-glaring glasses, and less shiny pieces of jewellery.
- Inside the studio, don't wear tinkling or jangling bracelets or pieces of jewellery. The pitch can be captured by the mic.
- Refrain from smiling all the time, freezing, stuttering, folding arms, brushing hair and all unnecessary gestures. Actions speak louder on a TV screen. Compose your mannerism and facial expression. Breathe, relax, and stay calm.
- Don't overtalk and argue. Wait for your turn and stay seated. When you talk, be concise and speak conversationally. Follow directions of the Producer and TV assistants. They are aware of the best angles for TV cameras.
