52 Project – Imitation is the Sincerest …

This week’s assignment was Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery. The instructions were to pick a photo we liked by another photographer, recreate and put our own spin on it. Based on time constraints I knew I would be picking a photo I could recreate in or around my house. When browsing for inspiration I usually look to William Wegman. Most of his images are elaborate and contain more props and patient Weimaraners than I own, but I knew there would be one if I looked hard enough. I hope you can see the sheer delight in Ellie’s eyes from getting to participate in this photo shoot.

I had a very similar assignment for a portrait photography class I took in 2010. For fun here are the results of that featuring Blue Bear.
