We don't know about you but we're having a hard time getting in gear following the Labor Day break. So, here's something on the lighter side of the photography world to help guide you out of late summer mode.

The below video is a short behind-the-scenes clip of legendary celebrity photography Annie Leibovitz photographing the ever-buzzed-about model Kate Upton for an upcoming issue of Vanity Fair. In the video, Upton channels Marilyn Monroe in front of Leibovitz' trusty Hasselblad camera, as they work to recreate an early Vanity Fair cover for the magazine's 100th Anniversary issue.
