Help identifying fashion model orientation

We deal with a lot of images of models in apparel, and it would be fantastic if we could automatically detect whether we're looking at the front, side or back view. Sometimes there's a head/face we could use for detection, but more often not - they're waistdown shots that only include the bottom half of the model. Could OpenCV do this even? We're looking to hire someone expert in this kind of thing to help us, but first of course we need to know if it's possible, and if OpenCV is the right tool. Thanks so much for your time!

We'd also be curious if OpenCV could detect particular garments worn by a model, like pants, but suspect that's not likely to be possible...

Kind regards, Jeff

I think you need to train your algorithm with number of sample images by extracting it's features. OpenCV has several methods for doing these. You can refer OpenCV documentation Feature Detection, Hog feature extraction etc.. There are many website and blogs explaining how to extract the features and train the algorithm.

Hope this helpful........
