Right in the middle of my thesis project Coachella happened. Consequently my Instagram Explore Page was flooded with images of festival goers, and within this deluge of Coachella selfies a few distinct patterns emerged.
To simulate the Coachella digital persona the criteria are as follows:
Glitter, rhinestones on your face, bright colorful makeup, festival wear (revealing, sparkly, impractical, but it looks so good in selfies).
There’s also a certain quality to the light in southern California in the late afternoon, so I also used the most lights for this look in order to make it seem like I was standing in front of that one wall at the Saguaro hotel.
