Video: The photo shoot

So, I'm going to put you right about here. I'm going to have to adjust my lens. Get right in the middle of the goal, one on each side of each other. There. Okay, stand right on right on like where the penalty shots would be coming in, okay? Can you see that light back here or is that pole blocking it? Male We can see it. Male That's pretty good. Let me do the same thing with this rack. I want to make them even though because I'm going to let you guys give it a cool look and then we'll do some post processing and make you look even cooler. Male It's even cooler than we already are.

Male It's even cooler than we already are.

Male (LAUGH) As if that were possible, right. Oh yeah. That's really smart Ben. >> (LAUGH). >> Here we go. Okay. Let's see how close you are. Okay. That's a pretty close first shot. Alright. So. >> Are we trying to save the ball? >> So, let's see. I want you to come, turn towards each chuh, other, other just a little bit and come just a tad out right there. >> Let me take a look. And I'm going, I'm going to point this down a little bit so you look, >> Kind of cool. >> (LAUGH) Yeah, as if that we possible, right, right, right. I know.

Okay, so I'm at f5, lets go to f3. Okay, it's going to be a very cool picture, you're going to like this. I want you to come in really close and turn towards each other. No, no, not like, towards me, but close to each other, okay? I want you to go back, let's try back-to-back. Turn around and go back-to-back. Male (LAUGH). Male All ready. I want to be right on axis with this, so. (SOUND) Yeah, alright, so I've got a really dramatic picture, I've got the sky nice and dark, in fact I've got to open that up a little bit.

(SOUND) Just checking. Okay, here we go. Bring the ball in tight. And chins up, just give me a little attitude. Yeah, maybe not quite that much attitude (LAUGH). Gerald rest, rest an arm on Andrew like that. I want you nice and tight. There you go, there you go. There you go, tuck, tuck the, tuck the ball under your arms like that. That's good. (SOUND) Okay, so what I'm going to do is get a little bit of flash for you guys. Just a tiniest bit.

In the front. There we go. Alright here we go. Like hands, hands like around the ball like that. There you go both, both. Can you do that without looking goofy? Figure out a way to hold the ball where it's just natural, so hold, hold the ball however you want. There you go. Say we love you, Mommy. (LAUGH) Get back there, I'm just messing with you. (LAUGH) That's okay, we have audio of this, you know that, right? Male Oh yeah. Male Alright, squeeze in a little closer together, just like that. Don't ever, your mom will never know how we got you guys, got to stand you this close.

Okay, almost done. Now, pull your feet together. (SOUND) Wait, wait, wait. Oh wait, don't move. There you go! Getting the geese. I'll take it, whatever. Alright, give me the toughest look you can give me. (LAUGH) We're done guys. Thank you very much. We'll take this and start with it.

But the thing is, it's, I mean, their mom, they're family friends so we want to surprise their mom with a kind of a cool goalkeeper picture of them. So that's. never ever pass up a chance to do that. I mean why, why not? It's, it's, five minutes, and it's huge.
