The most efficient and cost effective way to photograph clothing is on a mannequin. By doing it this way, 4-6 vintage pieces can be photographed per hour. Usually, it’s most efficient to take needed measurements at the same time as photographing the pieces. One of the biggest challenges of photographing vintage clothing is documenting all imperfections.
Many of these portfolio items were for other businesses.
