The aim was to showcase the accuracy and detail of the wax sculptures at the museum.
I wanted to make the sculptures look real. We used a soft light (same as I use to light actors in studio). My hope was that the soft non directional light would help conceal any give aways that what the viewer was looking at was a wax figure and not the real celebrity.
The client was blown away. The feed back has been that many viewers don't realize that what they are looking at is not the real thing.
