Ghost Mannequin photography is a fairly new technique that is taking over the online shopping pages. This technique has allowed online websites to show their clothes in a more realistic way. The way people shop has been changing and evolving towards more online shopping. As one aspect evolves the others are changing as well, and this includes the way products are photographed. Ghost Mannequin photography is a technique that shows every aspect of the apparel in a more realist way.
There are many different ways you can go about creating this technique:
The first technique involves using a bog standard mannequin shot from the front, and then turning it inside out to shoot again with the label showing. These two images can be merged together using Photoshop or another editing program. This method is a little lengthy. It is effective if you are willing to put the time into it that it requires.
The next method is to make a mannequin shape out of wire. Wire mannequins can certainly be used for this but again remember you will still be editing the photo afterwards.
Another type of ghost photography uses a transparent or a see through mannequin. This method requires getting the right lighting so that it doesn’t bounce off the see-through mannequin. These are several different ways to implement the ghost mannequin photography method using mannequins, but it takes a little practice to get it right. There is always the option of getting a company that specializes in it to do it for you, but what fun would that be.
