    August 19, 2018. Fortnite. It's a video game that came out in 2017 and is on it's way to becoming the most popular video game ever. Over 125 million people now play it. This is one of the children in a family of five that live here in the Ozarks. The family had finished eating dinner, so he headed down to the 'man cave' to play Fortnite with a friend via Wi-Fi, so had his headphones on communicating as they worked through the game. Trophies of family hunts hang on the wall. Ozarks of AR

    Terra, I'm taking notes from you on how to use fluorescent overhead light because it is *not easy* to make hard light work, especially with color balance. I love the intensity of this young player's expression, his unbothered concentration on the game he is playing with unseen friends through the game console. Nice work getting on his level and attaining that "fly on the wall" presence. Great job, Terra!
