About every 15 minutes, you'd be tossed packets of color and when the countdown hit 1, you then threw all your color into the air. Or if you were feeling really malicious, you just threw it at the person next to you.
Nikon 24-70 f/2.8
If you gotten this far, your next question may be, "Matt, how did you protect your gear from the colorful elements"? Well, I wouldn't in no way shape or form think about bringing a naked camera to a war zone without taking proper measures. Last year before I shot the Color Vibe, I found this website where this photographer completely wrapped his gear in saran wrap and successfully reported that his camera came back with very little color.
I don't have pictures of how I did mine, but it's really simple.
First, go to your local grocery store and pick of some saran or cling wrap. Grab any kind of clear packaging tape. That's it. That's all you need to buy.
Next, start wrapping the lens and camera body several times and make sure to use the tape you bought to hold together the wrap so it doesn't come undone.
Now if you want to play it extra safe, I would use a prime lens. That way you won't have to worry about zooming in or out and the whole lens will be complete safe. Now, I used the 24-70mm, which I had to cut away part of the wrap around the zooming rubber to easily zoom in or out. Luckily, the 24-70mm by Nikon is dust resistant, so I wasn't too worried about dust getting in the motor.
Finally, I would highly recommend placing a UV filter on your lens. This will ensure no dust particles will hit or get in the crevice of the lens. Oh and shoot in Aperture-Priority mode. Your dials will be cover by the wrap and the least amount of fiddling will work out the best and make life a little easier.
