This image was made at at the Sundance Film Festival and I had the luxury of having a studio so I decided to take a chance and do old Hollywood style glamour lighting with hot lights. The space for the studio was in the basement of a building built in the late 1800?s complete with only two circuits for power. Once we figured out how to maximize every outlet without blowing a fuse, all was well. I explained all of this to Maria and then said, "You know like the famous George Hurrell photographs." The next thing I knew she had channeled Greta Garbo, Marlene Deitrich and Joan Crawford all at once.
