Reason enough to be very careful in shooting a "color run."

Well not so fast I did the color vibe race and I just used a filter on lens my camera and clean it after I was done with NO damage.

Looks like the Holi Festival (observed in India and Nepal), adapted for a marathon run. I love the photos from Holi every year.

They are really popular now, it seems like every other day someone on my Facebook feed shares photos from one. And the first thing I thought was, I'm glad I didn't take those photos!

I'm not going near one of those runs.

That stuff can't be good for the runners' lungs, either.

See you are talking about a different type of paint, the kind they use in a color vibe race is NOT PAINT
it is just like a color powder it just come right off.

If I was hired to shoot one then I'd rent everything too. Of course they probably wouldn't pay me my rates so I wouldn't need to worry about it anyway.

Wait... the holy-saviour, "protection filters" didn't keep the lens internals clean? *Gasp*

My wife ran one recently and I just stayed away and up wind as much as possible. It wasn't a problem if you were just paying attention. Every pro there had the full on rain guard treatment. I didn't participate as it sounded like a horrible combination with my asthma.

Yeah, if you smart about it you should be safe. Using an internal focus/zoom lens would help a lot also.

I doubt I'd ever bother shooting one, but who knows if they we had one running through Old Town I just might. I think if I ever did I'd stand up wind and use my 70-200 or 300 so I can keep my distance and they both are internal focus/zoom(for the one that zooms). I don't think I'd need a rain cover with those precautions but I'd bring a disposable just in case.

And then there's the concern about inhaling second-hand color... :lol:

exactly.

funny they say the photographers weren't near the bombs, when the only pic in the article looks like it is right beside the thing.
