Hey all! I'm running into some difficulty keeping up with photographing my scarves. I use live models. I LOVE the way the photos look on my page, but it's becoming more and more complicated to set up shoots, especially because I can't pay my models and I work full time.

What do you all think about using dress forms or mannequins?

MISTY! Thank you so much for replying! I went ahead and bought a mannequin. Named her Blanche. And I love her, too! I think I'm going to mix it up with live models and my dear Blanche for awhile and see how it goes.

I have used a dress form in the past. Iron your scarves (if they are silk) and shine a good light on them. It looks fine depending on what kind of tie or "pose" you do. If you're doing head scarves, you could use a melon for that.
