Behind the Scenes : May Good Things
Posted by Blake Ramsey
Have you seen this month's Living yet? Here's a sneak peek into the photo shoot from May Good Things (a lot of hard work goes into these shoots, but we still manage to have fun
1 Stephen is an art director, but he's not afraid to get his hands dirty. Here he creates an artificial breeze on our Cinco De Mayo party fringe.
3 Our food editor Charlotte styles the chips
4 Those spiced fruit cups were amazing!! The instructions can be found in the magazine, but I think it's just a bit of chili powder and lime.
5 I trimmed the fringe in between shots- I love how it's created a festive confetti on the ground
6 Our first go at the dyed doilies- we often like to take several variations.
8 Dyeing these doilies was so fun. I just started out with a bit of food coloring in the bath, then gradually added the rest of the bottle. This made for a nice range from subtle to saturated.
10 Liz worked her styling magic on our set.
14 Here I am, adjusting doilies.
17 Our Art Director Alex works with Liz on the set. Those macarons were pretty delicious! There's always a lot of snacking that goes on during shoots.
25 Our favorite tissue paper! We list our source in this month's Great Finds.
