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.
