Chip of the Ol Block". I am fortunate enough to have a mother-in-law who saved the sweater my husband wore in this photograph. The sweater was handmade by his grandmother, so, it was truly worth saving.
I prefer to photograph clothing on a model. Unfortunately, I don't have a model or a dress form this small. Okay, perhaps I could have sweet talked one of my youngsters to wear the item, but they would not have held still long enough for me to take a good photo.
In that case, laying the sweater down was ideal. I have learned that if you fold the sleeves in, rather than have them lay flat out, makes the object more appealing. After trying to photograph the sweater both ways, that tip is awesome.
So, if you have clothing that can not be placed on a model, be sure to fold the sleeves and such, to give the item more life.
