E-commerce On-Figure Photography

When we first hear On-Figure it instantly means Model photography or fashion photography in our head. Which is not wrong either. But when talking about E-commerce On Figure, things become a bit different.

What is Ecommerce On-Figure Photography?

E-commerce On-Figure Photography is a model / fashion photography process with the intention of selling products worn or represented by the model online via an e-commerce platform. In this process the model is not the main subject to focus. Instead the model is being a reference for the online shoppers to get a better visual understanding of the product.

Types of Ecommerce On-Figure:

There are different types of styles adopted by different brands and photographers to stand out of the crowd. So it’s not easy to say how many types of On-Figure processes there are. I will try to point out some most commonly used styles but Brands.

  • Individual shots- In this segment there is a single model representing a product.
  • Group shots- A group of models representing the same or different products.
  • Model shots without face- The model’s face is cropped out to put maximum focus on the selling product.
  • White background shots- The background is removed and replaced with white to pop the color and contrast of the product.
  • Unique Background shots- Some people shoot on a unique background (Mostly a brand color).
  • Outdoor shots- Depending on the type of products On-figures are also shot outdoors.

Difference Between Model Photography and Ecommerce On-Figure Photography?

In a single sentence the main difference is the Model photography is where the Model is the main point of focus but in Ecommerce On-Figure the model doesn’t get much attention. It’s the product which is the center of attention.

Type of setup is needed?

Ecommerce On-Figure Photography can be done with very minimal setup if compared with Model photography. Depending on the client’s requirement some sessions only require a small studio with 3-4 Lighting setup, a Backdrop, Stylist, Model and of course the Photographer. But don’t be so cozy yet because some Ecommerce On-Figure shots are very demanding which require a maximum creative setup.

What is the Editing part?

Apart from the photography setup an editing team is also required. Since it is a high volume shoot it’s always a good idea to have a dedicated team of photo editors / video editors. Otherwise the Outsourcing option is also available.

Overall benefits:
