    Put on human is probably still the best.

    Because clothes were meant to be worn, and no one can tell what your clothing looks like when it's 2D. Imho.

    agree. Get a model to wear it is still the best. At least the clothes looks more "alive"

    you are not selling rug or curtain, why put it on the floor or hang on the wall?


    anyway, I prefer to use dressmaker mannequins,

    cos;

    they are available any time,
    don't have to pay them,
    don't have to see their mood,
    don't need go for toilet brake,
    don't have buy green tea for them,
    don't have to worry they go party all night long and forgot about the shoot,
    don't have to worry last min fly you aeroplane
    won't keep sms or making phone call during the shoot.
    won't complain your clothes won't fit or make them look fat,
    won't take an hour to do make up,
    won't ask you give clothes to them
    won't ask you give some photos to them
    won't complaint if you DI their head away

    Look for user: Sion.
    Click on his signature.
    it will link you to his product photography page with advice on how to shoot clothes with reason why it should be done that way.

    Simple and educating.

    Yes that's an alternative to making the clothes 3D.


    You can also use a cat, but the clothes probably won't fit and your customers can only tell what your clothes look like heaped on an angry looking feline.

    You can stuff a pillow in it if your pillow is soft... must have good lighting though.

    sounds like a pick-up line:

    "your clothes look better on the floor"
