How to Create 3D Product Photography

How to Create 3D Product Photography

Increasing conversion online is all about creating confidence in the customer that they know exactly what they are getting.

With clothing an important part of that is making sure the customer understands how it would fit them. Which is why many brands shoot their clothes either on mannequin or on model (with the exception of childrenswear). It gives an accurate representation of how the clothes look on a person’s body, and gives the consumer an idea as to what they might look like in it.

However, it isn’t all that simple. To get that 3D effect without the mannequin or model in the image requires a gentle touch from a skilled hand.

The plus-sized market place is still a rather under represented channel in women’s fashion. However, over the last few years it has developed into a thriving market place fulfilling a demand. What was before a rather lacklustre selection is now a demanding fashion channel.

Shooting 3D

Over the last couple of months we've had a wide variety of gorgeous active and swimwear.

These clothes provide a unique challenge when shot on mannequin. Creating the 3D effect with the mannequin cut out requires multiple angles to be shot and the images to be stitched together in post production.

This is especially difficult with thin complicated straps.

For this reason people often opt for shooting (especially swimwear) on flat lay, which can be a quicker option. However, the 3D effect is great for showing how the product fits when worn.

Chilly Bottles

Chillys Bottles

Chilly's mission is to accelerate the adoption and everyday use of reusable products. 

“Products with the perfect balance of distinctive style and unrivalled performance.”

The idea for the Chilly’s Bottle was to launch a product that combines the convenience of a plastic water bottle, with the high performance technology and eco-friendly benefits of a traditional flask.

The result: a reusable water bottle that offers outstanding performance in a modern and stylish design, that people love to have with them at all times.

Chilly’s is a London based business, founded in 2010 and run by James Butterfield and Tim Bouscarle.

We love their designs, which come in a broad spectrum of colours and patterns which are constantly evolving. Their pastel range is a particular favourite of ours in the studio, the bright pastel colours with the minimalist design  and ultra-functionality make the product exciting, eye-catching and fun.

On top of the designs there are many benefits to the bottles. Not least of all is that they are insulated, keeping your drink warm or cold respectively. But being metal means we move away from the harmful toxins that can be released from disposable plastics. And of course plastic bottles are an economic crisis, with millions of tons of bottles going to land-fill. In the UK alone we fail to recycle around 16 million plastic bottles a day.

This then is a product we can truly get behind.

However, with the advancement of technology online shopping has exploded and consumers are now buying more things online than all the previously mentioned methods combined.

Consumers want honesty. And traditionally the fashion market place has not been a particularly honest place. Plus-sized clothing is often shot on models who fall on the rather slim side. What this means when shopping online for plus-sized clothing is that you can’t get a real sense of what the clothes would look like.
