Imitate the Greats

Yesterday I was so inspired by this shot I saw on Pinterest that I wanted to try to recreate it immediately. I borrowed my beautiful wife and we headed to our humble home studio. I set up my Dynalite Baja B4's with some reflectors and had the shot in less than 10m. 

I'm a huge believer in imitating shots that inspire you. While I don't claim credit for the original idea of the image, the process of re-creating that image is the best education you could buy.
