Juno is a very versatile local model and an all-around lovely person. I've been fortunate enough to shoot with her a couple of times now and always enjoy getting to create with her. This particular series was a bit of a happy accident. We'd been shooting for a few hours at my friend Cat's studio in Oakland. We were nearing the end of our shoot, when I noticed rainbows all over the walls. The late afternoon sun shining in this one window that had prism stickers all over it, was throwing rainbows all over the studio.
I was unsure how long the rainbows would stick around, but I knew that the studio lights would overpower them, so I turned them off and we went and shot using natural light by the window for the rest of the shoot. I didn't even bother with a background; we just used the bare drywall that's normally hidden by seamless paper or muslin.
When I first looked through the images from this shoot, I didn't really like the rainbow shots and I kept skipping over them. Over time, they started to grow on me, and after playing around with a few editing options, they eventually became some of my favorite images from the shoot.
