Stock Photography for Advertising is expensive you need models and expensive equipment, the right location and light not to mention experience and time to take great photo's. Capturing the perfect moment can be difficult.
Now days 3d models can look super detailed and realistic. These 3d models are often more beautiful then people you are able to photograph, without going to a modelling agency. You wouldn't have to worry about consent from 3d models or need to do anything inside of Photoshop. The girls on the covers of magazines mayaswelll be fake by the time designers have finished photoshoping them.
How about an 3d space where you can arrange models, scroll through the library of photo realistic models and choose a model you would like to work with. Next choose their facial expressions, select a body stance pre set you can edit each part of the model by simply clicking the the model joints will appear and can be dragged into a new position. Now that we have chosen the models stance we can save it and dress them up out of the wardrobe. Options to add more models to the 3d space camera camera angles focus and lighting effects etc. Once you have composed the image you are able to move out of 3d space and choose background images for the scene eyes can be moved in any direction.
3d Models can look like photo's that have been edited in Photoshop "picture perfect" as soon as you snap I'm surprised that these types of models aren't used extensively in stock photo library's if you organised the right system to photograph models in different stances and every conceivably angle you could other people could upload there models background and angles. people in editing photo's could start off picture perfect images models could be used in advertising more- do you ever upload hd images to stock photo libraries.
This require a lot of work, i.e photographing models in every conceivable pose with varying DOF. This would be a great tool but the time and cost would be quite prohibitive.
