    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.

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments!

    Ptchfork: I placed a SB-800 behind the book, aimed towards the subject's face. Another SB-800 on my camera acted as commander and also provided some fill to light the cover. Nikon CLS makes this stuff really easy!
