There are 6 things to remember when you are doing camouflage and concealment.
Shape: The body is an outstanding shape (some more so than others) in nature, and therefore the blocky figure does not fit in, it needs breaking up, with natural foliage to disguise the squared body parts, and webbing etc.
Surface: The surface of you and your equipment needs certain measures to make it similar to that of your surroundings. Also make sure you have nothing shining, which will give your position away in an instant.
Shadow: Friend and foe, especially in Close Quarter Battle, with the sun behind you, your shadow may be projected past the corner of a wall alerting any enemy to your presence. Shadows should be used to their full potential, staying in them as much as possible is a great tactic.
Silhouette: The skyline of London, an outstanding monument against the backdrop of the sky. This is how much you would stand out pitched against the sky either at night or day. Avoid crests and hilltops.
Spacing: An obvious one, keep spread out to prevent the section all being killed in one go by hard gun power.
Movement: Movement draws the eye. When you give arm-and-hand signals or walk about your position, your movement can be seen by the naked eye at long ranges. In the defence, stay low and move only when necessary. In the offence, move only on covered and concealed routes.
