A Makeshift Portrait Studio At Sundance

Speaking of portraits, photographer Jeff Vespa has set up a makeshift studio at Sundance Film Festival. Vespa is the founder of the celebrity and entertainment photo service WireImage — and has filed these photos for LIFE. (You can see the full gallery of photos on their site.) All it takes is a backdrop and some lighting and you can have a nicely stylized series of anything (even bird feathers), anywhere!
