Color Me Rad 5k Run

Color Me Rad 5k Race

This past Saturday, I was one of the official race photographers at the Color Me Rad 5k Race in San Jose. I was a little worried about my camera but they assured me it would be safe and I knew I would get some great photos. I put my camera in a plastic rain sleeve, put my sunglasses on, and took my position at the finish line. I found myself engulfed in a cloud of pink powder most of the time, but the color made for some great shots. Total photo count at the end of the day: 4,279.

Notes: I shot this with the Nikon D800 and 24-70 f/2.8. The aperture stayed at f/8 during the race to make sure the photos were nice and crisp.
