Mannequin and Lighting testing

Last week the two photographers tried and tested the lighting in the studios on a mannequin.

The images look really successful, I love the use of coloured lighting, it helps adds something to the images and the mannequin is perfect, she looks very realistic. In terms of styling, I think if we do tests from one extreme to the other meaning, we could use for instance, a simple suit and see what the image looks like with the lighting then we could test styling ideas with clothing that has more detail: the lighting I think will work better with the detailed clothing because it will show up the creases and contrasts in the clothes. The simple styling however may add a mysterious kinda creepy sense to the uniform of women and mannequins.
