For today’s image, I sought to create the look of a dark family room being lit solely from a television screen. The light source was a single 18×18″ softbox placed in front of the kids on the floor. The black room in the background is just a roll of seamless about 5 feet behind the couch.

I did a whole series of these two pretending to play video games. This particular image was originally an outtake, but I ultimately decided to keep it in the set. Josh was saying funny things “under his breath” while I was shooting in an attempt to get Sarah to crack up. On this shot, he succeeded.
