The Invisible mannequin technique is used to make it look like an invisible model was wearing a garment during a photo shoot. This effect is realized by taking two separate images: one of the garment on the model and one of the inside of the garment. Invisible mannequin is used for upper garments – jackets, sweaters, vests, shirts, undershirts, etc. – but also for pants, dresses, and skirts. Invisible mannequin is often combined with (simultaneous) processes such as De-creasing, Reshaping, Cleaning, Recolouring, etc
A shadow can be a drop shadow based on the outlines of an object – or a natural shadow. Shadows can be used on any background/surface. Depth, direction, color, intensity, etc. can be detailed in the specifications. Reflections are created by simulating an object on a mirrored surface. If there are reflections in the original photo (due to use of a mirrored surface) these can also be retained.
