  • With 'look like 3D', do you mean that it looks as if someone is wearing the clothes, that is, that the clothes are 'filled' with a body? In the pictures you are showing, it looks as if the clothes are on a mannequin and that the mannequin has been retouched out of the final images. – jarnbjo Sep 11 '19 at 11:14
  • "look like 3D" – Anaglyphs, though haven't seen them on any shopping sites. – xiota Sep 11 '19 at 11:44
  • I have heard before the ghost mannequin effect and maybe is an option but i haven't tried it yet. I heard also about some programs that you can transform a photo of a clothing into a digital one with very high resolution analysis or even create the clothing item in this program. Anyone know something about it? – Ragnar Sep 12 '19 at 8:04

From the photography side these look 3d because they are. One of the comments has already mentioned the ghost manikin effect where they are placed on a body but the body has been edited out.

The other most important thing is light. In order to get the look you're after you need at least one larger light source that is going to provide the subtle shadows that will give it dimensions.

Equipment list: Light source i.e. off camera flash Diffuser (Preferably with a grid) Transmitters/cable to connect to camera (you can skip this if you've rigged it up with a permanant light source) Camera - nothing special, just needs to be able to work with the off camera light probably a second hand DSLR if you don't already have one. Tripod would be handy if you see yourself doing lots of these
