Interested in learning more about ghost mannequin photography and our process? We’ve answered some of the most common questions to help you understand how ghost mannequin photography can enhance your apparel photos.

What is ghost mannequin photography?

Ghost mannequin photography is a technique that gives garments a fitted look, as if worn by a person, without the need for a live model. This approach is beneficial when you want to focus solely on the product without the distraction of a model or in situations where using a model may not be permitted. Additionally, it allows you to achieve a professional, fitted appearance without incurring the cost of hiring a live model.

What types of clothing are best suited for ghost mannequin photography?

Ghost mannequin photography is ideal for a wide range of apparel, including shirts, dresses, jackets, pants, and more. It works particularly well for items where the fit and structure are important selling points.

Is there any particular clothing size that works best?

We generally recommend shipping medium sizes when shooting ghost mannequin photos. While we can accommodate most sizes, the best results are usually achieved when staying away from very small or very large sizes.
