The first time I did a photo like this was just over twenty years ago using my son, Daniel, as the model opening the door.  Yesterday when we recreated the shot in our studio, my sons, Christopher and Daniel, now photographers in their own right, helped me put together this set, which resulted in a new version of the original photo concept.

The front part of the set with door and wall were assembled in our daylight studio.  It is actually a simple set, consisting of the door, its frame, two 4'x8' foamcore panels to form the walls, and floor molding to finish it off.  The whole thing is supported by autopoles. We then lit an interior wall with a strobe that over-powered the daylight exposure and provided the bright light beaming through the open door.  Camera was a Nikon D4 equipped with the Nikon 24-70mm zoom.
