I had been wanting to make a rainbowy, prismatic inspired shoot for a couple of months now. I originally came up with the idea planning with a friend, who wanted to embrace the scientific side of light spectrums in a photoshoot, but she had to postpone the shoot. Still, I wanted to shoot the idea. But maybe in a different context. Something bright, poppy, and vivid. I remembered I'd talked with Ciara Hanna about doing a shoot and realized she would be perfect for the idea! I've directed her in a couple of projects and knew firsthand that she's naturally bubbly and vibrant, as well as a natural in front of the camera. Plus, she always gives 100% on her projects, so her work ethic always shines through in the final product.
Sure enough my intuition was right. I barely had to do any directing for this photoshoot, which actually makes me nervous when I realize I haven't done it after a few minutes. But I had nothing to be nervous about. She was giving me natural, candid shots like I originally imagined in my head with this idea, an idea I communicated to her at the beginning of the shoot and that she ran with. I've learned over the years that each project and model will feel a little different. Sometimes I end up communicating a lot verbally to paint a picture with the model, other times we're on the same wavelength and can shoot without much direction. And other times the model has the lead with her own idea and I'm just there to follow along and photograph.
This particular shot was from the end of the shoot, one of the last snaps at golden hour. This one's more moody than candid, to match with the golden hour portrait look. This photoshoot reminded me how important casting the right model or actor in your project is. When you do, everything just works out almost on its own.
I achieved the prismatic look by applying a chromatic abberation effect, duplicating and displacing Ciara horizontally, and superimposing a prismatic element I photographed separately.
