Empty shirts

Shot some empty shirts couple weeks back. Shot a piece of Carbon Fiber last night. Did this preliminary layout for the client. His graphics guy will finish the job. Bought some cheap, blow-molded mannequins and chopped the heads off for this. http://esmindy.com/

I like the job on these, and they aren't that polished. Good job on the work you have done. It looks pretty good to me.

Thanks. There was a fair bit of effort in getting the shirts 'posed' - and the goal was to have them look natural. Lots of craft foam, gaff tape, pins, etc in the arms, under the shoulders, in the back, etc.

A nice colorful commercial / product shot Karl.

Good job with a tough subject!

I'm impressed! With the variety of colors and styles I can see how one could go crazy trying to arrange them. Nice job.

so, what did you do with the heads? Hate to be the garbage man that finds that!

It looks well worth the effort, great results!

Thanks to all. No heads, actually, just necks.
I had to give the female mannequin a boob job too - she was too pointy.

Playing plastic surgeon today. Bought a cheap plastic mannequin for a clothing shoot. She ended up being far too ... pointy. I cut off the front of her boobs and artfully shaped new breasts from a Styrofoam ball.
In case it isn't obvious, the OP is a composite image.

Nice, imaginative work.

I'm doing a shirt job now. Purple color isn't reproducing well, even though I used a gray card, and the guy says that he sees banding, even though my high rez ones don't show it.

Any ideas?

Any ideas?

First, you should start a new thread for this topic - and provide a LOT more information. When you say it isn't reproducing well, do you mean in the camera, on your computer screen, or in print? Same with the banding issue. Tell us about your color profiles, print process, and post a sample image if you are able.

Wow! I am so glad I found this thread. I am stumped over shooting hand dyed clothing for a web store. Product photography isn't my forte. You have given me some ideas. I especially like the OP. Off to find a mannequin or three now. Thank you.

Yeah. Peeps got NO idea how much craft and
ingenuity goes into seemingly ordinary shots
of familiar objects. All the gear manufacturers
meanwhile give noobs the idea that all it takes
is a coupla lights and a tilt lens, and you're the
"Pro" [a word whose usage I tend to despise].

If you hadn't found this thread already, I would have pointed you to it once I had found it myself.

I like it. The posing of the shirts / models are good. Sharp, intriguing image. Nice work.

Neat. Thanks for posting some of the 'making of' process. I love reading about the thinking behind the setup.

Re: Empty shirts
 
Personally I'd like to see more styling in the shirts. There are several weird creases.
And unless its something the client specifically wanted, its a little odd that they all face in different directions.
