Reflective surfaces and environments.
Im fairly new to 3D modeling and was hoping i could get a bit of general or specific advice on recreating a similar effect to the image below. Im not sure of the images source, very reminiscent of, if not from the video for Bjork's "All is full of love" though.
It is the lovely white reflective surface of the figure that i am most interested in recreating.
I have had reasonable success using the Arch-Design and Promaterials materials. Along with Mr daylight systems to get a very solid / real looking effect. But i feel like I am stabbing in the dark. I also struggle to get the combination of materials, lighting and environment set ups to work together.
So what i was hoping for was peoples ideas about how they would go about creating this sort of effect. In terms of materials, lighting, environment, exposure... everything really :)
I havnt included any images of my efforts as i dont want to be too leading. I am interested in other peoples ideas of how they would go about it. Rather than fixes for my botchy efforts.
Any thoughts / incites greatly appreciated.

Look into HDRI lighting as a solid starting point mate.
