Behind the Scenes : Bright & Beautiful
Posted by Stephanie Hung
When I joined the magazine, my first assignment was the outdoor lighting story featured in the December issue of Living.
Eric, Marcie, and I traveled to beautiful Vermont with the promise of heavy snowfall, but we met many challenges along the way: a HEAVY 16-foot tree, slippery farm roads, and unpredictable weather patterns, to name a few.
However, with the help of talented photographer Lucas Allen, we managed to capture some special moments, as seen in the December issue. Here are some behind-the-scenes photos:
1 Lucas sets up his next shot in the snow.
2 For the picture above, we carried the tree out to the field and then covered our tracks (and extension cords!).
3 Eric using his favorite toy (the Snow Joe) to create perfect mounds of snow.
4 Marcie holding the lighting umbrella. (Is it me or are you reminded of Mary Poppins?)
5 Putting my tree-climbing ability to good use.
6 Our beloved van felt like a clown car...
7 Just look at how much we fit inside (and that's not even counting the tree)!
It was an incredible experience and I had the best time. Four days in snow pants? Now there's one way to make a Canadian happy.
