Hot Purple Festival Photography

Ever thought that a digital arts classroom could partner with a local solar energy company? Well, this year DATA Digital Imaging and Hot Purple Energy teamed up to shoot "where art is happening" at the Indian Wells Arts Festival.

Di has been working with festival producer Diane Funk for three consecutive years now shooting the event with student images being used online and in print. This year we notched it up a level by staging a full green screen studio completely run on energy harnessed from the sun! Festival goers were shot on-sight by a team of 12 students over the 3-day event, then Photoshopped into this year's festival print, Trail to the Pyramids, by artists Linda and Dusty Kinman.
"It was amazing to know that our computers and studio lights were seamlessly being powered by the sun. It was also great to work as a team with such an enthusiastic company like HPE who truly believe in doing exciting things in our community."
