I had been thinking of doing a shot like this for a while now, but with kids and a children's book. This was a test shot while sitting in Chapters. One SB-800 hidden by the book, aimed at face with diffuser. Second SB-800 on camera acting as commander and providing a bit of fill for the cover of the book. I used a small aperture to black out most of the background. Retouching done in Photoshop.
