Where in reality, shooting ghost mannequin photography can be very easy. All you need is a good camera, some skills in taking pictures, know a little about the lights and other setup and you are a professional photographer for your own clothing items.
Seriously, its that easy. Often I see really pathetic images of ghost mannequin photography taken by professional photographers that it breaks my heart seeing how clients are being ripped off on those poor photographs that are supposed to be professional high quality clothing images. Once the poor photographs are taken by some wanabie or lame photographers, then come to me asking those images to be retouched to enhance their look. Now being in the photo editing and retouching business, its great news for me because I get the business of editing those photos, but at the end it is the clothing store owners who pay for those edits.
If you don’t have the budget to hire a professional photographer with proper credentials, then do yourself a favour and do the ghost mannequin photography shooting yourself. Trust me, its lot better than paying some inexperienced photographers. After all, you cannot make it any worse. At the end, you save money for the photographers who will charge you easy $20 - $50 per photo taken.
Once you take those photos yourself for your clothing items, you can then pass those images to the professional photo editing service providers like me and we can take it form there. Edit cost will be half as there will be only need to do ghost mannequin photography editing. No need for any actual image editing or retouching to enhance the look of the image as it came up right to begin with.
