What You Should Do 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.

One niche in photography is apparel. As a clothing photographer it is your duty to find a way to bring out the best in the item. Finding a way to make the garment look good is not as simple as it sounds.

When it is not worn, an item of clothing can look like a rag. It needs to hang on a garment rack or be worn so that it doesnt look so lifeless and flat. There are ways to make it beautiful. The proper lighting can give it dimension.

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.

Models are useful because they showcase how it should look on a body. However, they can distract from the garment. A customer may spend more time looking at the model than the actual piece. Plus you would have to spend money to hire a model.

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.

Clothing photography is used by businesses. They photograph their stock. Web sites and other online sellers also rely on this type of photography. Images of their stock fill their web sites and that is how their customers will pick and choose what they want. Online shopping is very popular and a lot of people prefer this to going to the store physically. However customers also want to be able to have an accurate idea of the item and the photos need to be of high quality.

If you are an online seller or trying to build and grow a following, you need to provide buyers with good images. It needs to look the way you would see it in person. Learning tips and tricks to enhance the qualities of the material and bring out the details can be easy. You can even teach yourself by practicing the digital techniques. Pictures that have the right composition and lighting are absolutely necessary. Attention to detail is key. Obviously well pressed and zero creases are a must when doing ecommerce.
