One of the best techniques is the Ghost Mannequin Technique. Ghost mannequins can be created using photoshop. This technique is done by carefully taking eye-level shots with a live model and one shot of the top of the shirt, for example, photographed inside-out.

This leaves the look of the garment being worn. Extra wrinkles can be removed from garments with a Photoshop technique called “frequency separation.”

That creates crisp, sharp shots that allow for examination of the product’s details. The white background can be paper, vinyl, muslin, or canvas. In this type of photography one can also add diffusers that create patterns in the lighting or change the background color in Photoshop or Light room.
