Coachella was pretty great because there was a lot of stuff to take pictures of—lots of pools and hot tubs and animal hats and tattoos and "festival people" and music and beer and other random shit. Whenever I shoot something, I take a lot of pictures because I love the way the people in the photos change from one shot to the next. Normally, the first few shots are a little pose-y. But toward the end of a run, when people are starting to feel bummed out, the photos get better.
I asked one girl for her pic and she was like, "Do you want me to charge up?" Before I could be like, "Huh?" her boyfriend took out these two LED flashlights and started shining them all over her body. It turned out her whole outfit was glow-in-the-dark, and she started dancing. It was a good festival vibe.
