Nice lighting, nice models and very important - nice poses. Did you direct them yourselves? Great job!

what would your idea behind the lighting setup? would it be to create a seamless white background? what would be your idea for placing the white acrylic on the ground?

were u in a rush to shoot the images? there seems to be motion blur in some of the pictures.

just some questions in my mind when i look at the images.

Your deduction is absolutely correct and the intention is to have a seamless background to bring out
the subject's image distinctively and most important their hair and makeup. I like clean lighting
as it helps accentuate the makeup. My work place does makeovers and it is important for us to showcase
our abilities as these are paid shoots. The acrylic is more of a decorative and it's not specific item.

As for the motion blur sometimes it does happen as was trying to nail the shots. Just some examples of images
showing the makeup :

i see. do you have enough lighting in the studio? because it would be easier if the background was lit. then you won't have much of a problem getting a clean white background and in turn it means lesser post processing work after that.

the acrylic board will not look so out of place as well.

i noticed a very warm white balance in the pics but that is more of a personal preference i guess.
