How It’s Made: Invisible Mannequin


One of the questions we are most frequently asked is “How do your invisible mannequin shots work?” So often are we asked that we thought we’d explain the process.

Many wrongly believe that the invisible mannequin effect is achieved in Photoshop. Our mannequins are in fact made of a special alloy, invisible to a camera’s sensor. In the above shot one of our fashion photographers positions a mannequin for photography.

Despite costing £10,000 + VAT each, the mannequins, designed by NASA, have become the industry standard for still life fashion photographers such as ourselves.

After photography the images go to Post Production for a quick cleanup and colour-check before being delivered to the customer online.
