How to photograph clothes?

To make a high-quality, informative and attractive photo for the advertising catalog, you need to make some efforts.

We present important recommendations that will help you cope with this task and prevent mistakes.

Recommendations for shooting clothes
Shooting clothes on a man
The best option for the demonstration of things. Such pictures allow buyers to present the clothes on themselves, to see all its virtues.

Pick a model of good looks and with a good figure. Then you can show clothes in all its glory.

How to photograph clothes?

If the model fails to attract, there are still two options for shooting:

On a mannequin;
On the floor.
Of course, they are not ideal options, since they practically do not convey the subtleties of cut and design, but they are nevertheless more optimal than shooting clothes on a hanger.

When photographing clothes on the floor, choose a top view; climb the hill. Prospects also distort the image, so you don’t need to use them.

Preparation of things
Clothing must be neat: clean, ironed. The photographs of various spots and bruises are the first thing to catch your eye.

The better you prepare your clothes before a photo session, the less hassle will be at the stage of image processing.

Use of accessories
Properly selected accessories will highlight the benefits of clothing; It will seem more expensive and better.

Accessories that are great for a photo:
Clock;
Purse;
Belt;
Umbrella;
Cufflinks, tie;
Etc.
Compositions and images with the listed elements will help buyers to perceive clothes favorably.

Proper lighting
For photographing things is best to use large softboxes. Thanks to them, uniform soft lighting is achieved.

Why is the use of these devices recommended?
First of all, because direct and unscattered light creates deep shadows that begin to take part in the whole composition, breaking it.

Thus, professional shooting of clothes for catalogs is necessarily carried out with soft lighting.

Shooting multiple clothing options
If the type of clothing behind is different than the front, make two options for the photo: the buyer should see all the features of the thing that interested him.

If the thing has a lining, or the color of the clothes inside is different from the main color, this should also be shown in the photo.

Inclusion in the frame details
Be sure to show on the photo the texture of the fabric and interesting details that are on things. To do this, make a frame with a zoom, transferring the camera to macro mode.

Editing the resulting photo
This is the final stage in the shooting of clothes.

When using a photo editor, you can:

Blacken color, texture of things in the photo;
Whiten the background;
Remove the dummy stand;
Smooth wrinkled fabric;
