How to make ghost mannequin fashion photographs?
In order to achieve the effect of a ghost mannequin on a photo in Canada and the United States, you have to do several things first:
Make the item presentable: iron out all the crumpled fabric and folds
Put the item on a mannequin specifically designed for this product, respecting all the necessary proportions and parameters
Take photos of the product from several different angles. Curiously, not only do you need product photos from the outside, but from the inside as well, so that all the inner seams and the label are visible, when usually they are covered by the wearer’s neck, arms and body.
The next step is the magic touch of post-production. The photos taken are expertly edited, the unnecessary elements are cut, and the pictures are merged, creating the ghost mannequin effect.
With what products can ghost mannequin photography be used?
The beauty of ghost mannequin product photography is that you can photograph any type of product using this technique. For instance, you can photograph complex-tailored clothing, exclusive-design clothing or articles combining several types of fabric. This allows you to easily increase sales of underwear, daywear, eveningwear, or sportswear, as well as business and wedding attire.
