You know that saying about the best-laid plans? The saying is true in the world of the Boise Weekly Gift Guide as well.
Sometimes, when we plan a big project like Gift Guide, including an on-location photo shoot, things just don't work out. That's exactly what happened with our first attempt for this year's guide. We headed to the super cool mid-century modern furniture store Jillopy on the Boise Bench for our first take at the planned photo shoot. And while the furniture was great and the staff fantastically welcoming (basically letting us take over the entire store), lighting and other circumstances meant that the photos just didn't work the way we needed them to.
We thought we'd give readers a little insight into what the Gift Guide might have looked like if we had gone another direction. Check out the slideshow here to see images from the first shoot. To see the final product, click here.
