Christmas in July

This image was shot in our parking lot in July. It came together by printing large tiles of a stock image eventually taped to the cinder block wall in the background. The lantern glow is powered by a battery and shown through an amber gel. The fake snow was ordered from a prop house in Hollywood. Overall we saved a ton of money on travel and location expenses doing it in our backyard.

Watch the video below of how the shot came together.


…and the final image as it appeared on the cover.
