I didn't use a model for these photos because I wanted to give the dresses a 'forgotten' and ghostly feel. I used these dresses because they were translucent so added to the atmosphere I wanted to create. I shone a light on them to create shadows of the dresses on the wall behind; I thought it was interesting how the shadows looked like more real dresses because the shadow had a similar quality to the translucency of the dress.
I converted some of th photographs into black and white and for others made the colours really muted to give a sense of the garments fading away.
