Peninsula Shoots with Johnston Home / by Jean Bai

It’s been a meaningful shoot, since Alison Johnston of Johnston Home was actually the first client I had in the bay area. It’s come full circle now about a year and a half later when it came time to shoot two rooms about 5 minutes away from one another.

We finally caught some sunshine this very rainy winter season toward the end of March and shot the living room in Palo Alto during the morning and a kitchen in Menlo Park during the afternoon.

During all this rain, I sat down and took a bunch of courses on color correction technique and was pretty happy with the result for this shoot. The issue with shooting during a sunny day is that you get all these green reflections from the trees and grass outside and you can a mix of yellow and orange light bouncing off wood floors. It was fun to see the true wall colors restored!
