How To Enhance The Item As A Clothing Photographer

By Kathrine Franks

When you look at a magazine or buy stuff online you will see models. They are the hangers for the clothes and jewellery. They are just second in importance. The items should stand out not the model.

In commercial and fashion industries one essential aspect is the apparel. A clothing photographer is tasked with an important job. They must make the garment appealing through the picture.

Clothes do not have a life. They are flat items that just lie there. You need to learn the lighting techniques that can make it look good and catch attention. The right balance of dark and light will make the piece pop on camera. It will give it definition.

Another trick of the trade is using a steamer. This is a gentle way to ease wrinkles out of the fabric. It does not cause stress on the material like a flat iron. When clothes are presented in a crease free way, it does a lot in making it look appealing to a customer. Nobody will line up to buy wrinkled apparel.

You can hire a model. That way the pictures will show how an outfit will look when worn. Hiring a model will cost more money and it might detract from the item.

If your business is retail clothing, a good investment is to buy several mannequins or dress forms. They can be used to hang clothing and it will achieve the same purpose of showing how it should look when worn by a person.

As a clothing retail company or even if you are just selling your own items online, the image is your best weapon. Provide good quality pictures that show details of the material. Multiple pictures from different angles are also a bonus. Showing as much of the piece as possible is what a consumer requires. Everything can be done online and so customers also like to buy their apparel and accessories online. The main difference is that they can not touch the items and so the photo is their only way to get a sense of what the piece looks like.

There is a huge demand for this type of photography. The fashion industry is very lucrative and they are the main user of these types of photos. They invest a lot to get the best images of their stock because they know that the better quality photos will make the item more appealing to customers. The industry knows that if they can present it correctly, it will translate into a huge increase in sales and demand.

Remember lighting is important. Catch the details of the item. Iron all apparel so that it looks pristine and crisp when it is presented. It needs to be presented in the best possible way to attract buyers. The better the picture is, the more attractive your piece will look and the more buyers it will attract.
