Color Me Rad San Jose

If you can run, even for a short while, Color Me Rad should be on your list of must do races.  This event is less about competition and more about having fun in 3 miles of color bomb warfare.

I didn’t run, but I had so much fun shooting this event. The whole day was like an explosion at the Pixie Stix factory. Here are some of my favorite shots.

I started my day off wearing white + khakis, and ended up looking like a Smurf.  My neighbors gave me the strangest look when they saw me coming home covered in blue powder acting like nothing happened.

Fires n Fotos

Hey Bay Area photographers, if you’re looking to practice your night photography on some really amazing subjects check out the ‘Fire n Fotos’ events. Every month in San Francisco (usually the second Thursday) a huge group of fire dancers gather to breath, toss, spin, and hula hoop with fire. Eccentric personality + moving fire = a great show.  Location changes every time so to find out where the next one is, join the San Francisco Photography Meetup for updates.

These photos are from a shoot in March.  I have a lot to learn about shooting fire dancers but here are a few thing’s I’ve figured out so far.

  1. Don’t get burned.
  2. A tripod is your best friend.
  3. Experiment with you settings.
  4. Try different angles.
  5. Don’t get burned.

Haha.  Hope you enjoy these photos.
