This morning, two of my iPhone photos were chosen for display on Pixels: The Art of the iPhone website. “In Praise of Blue” above and “The Pleading” below. I took these two photos last year at a local Color Run and just recently rediscovered them when plowing through all my photo archives. I love the quality of light in each one and the energy of the subjects and used minimal apping with Laminar to create two images I am really happy with.

All three of these images seem to speak to my current personal spiritual journey as do several other images I have been working on for quite some time now. It will be interesting to see how they evolve over the coming months.
I had the pure joy of shooting a recent Color Run in Sacramento. I had heard about these crazy 5k runs where participants are covered along the route with a cornstarch powder that contains natural coloring. By the time they reach the finish line, the runners look like they were dipped in a rainbow tie-dye vat.
Honestly, I have never had such a fun time shooting anything as I did shooting this event. It was a colorful free-for-all that left everyone: photojournalists, participants and passive observers alike with a giant smile on their faces.
If you catch wind of a Color Run near you, I highly suggest you sign up now. It is a wonderful opportunity to throw off all the weight of the world and get back in touch with your inner-child.
Here is a little piece I put together with photos and video, all completely shot and edited on my iPhone.
