Dillon (College Day)

When my friend Dillon asked me to do photos for his new project, I was both excited and anxious. I wanted to do something outside in the grass, but I didn't really know how to go about doing this shoot without making it look like every other boring promo shoot for a singer-songwriter. I wanted it to be simple and pretty, but also unique and eye-catching, and that's where the prism came in.

I had read about using a prism for cool photo effects before (see this article for tips and tricks, it's really useful) and I've been dying to get the chance to do it ever since, and this shoot seemed like the perfect opportunity. Honestly, I really love how all of these photos turned out. Usually I walk away from a shoot with maybe one or two pictures that I really love, but I was really happy with just about every single one of these photos and I'm super excited to be able to use this technique again.


We took most of these photos off of a hiking trail just outside of Boulder. It had been raining all day and thankfully decided to stop for us for a little bit. The overcast clouds made for the perfect lighting and looked really cool over The Flatirons on the way back to the car, so I had to snap a couple of quick photos.
