Event Photography at The Color Run

Event Photography at The Color Run


Event Photography at The Color Run (yes with the American spelling) was a different kind of event for Lensi. We have a whole host of cameras and lenses but have heard so much from theory photographers about the colour particles and power getting everywhere and wrecking your camera /lenses

With this apprehension in mind we decided to use our   7D’s they started out wrapped in cling film (with holes in places where it was needed) for protection, however …. misguided by seeing other photographers with bare cameras, this got taken off.


The remit for the images was to get images full of colour and fun (it is dubbed the happiest 5k run on the planet #Happiest5k. The Color Run is also a diverse family event, so again this was something to portray in the images.


I decided to not attend the first two colour points, so that runners would already be quite colourful, and decided to get them at the pink colour station, just because it is a bold bright colour and personal favourite.

The earlier decision to take off the cling film was very much misguided, even though at no point was i actually in the thick of the colour throwing, everything was covered. The lens struggles to fucus in the haze of dust, and you can actually see articles of dust inside the lens, anyone that tells you this will not happen …. well I think it would be difficult to prevent it. The camera bag on my back, clothes, cameras, hair, face, glasses … covered in powder.

However, it is great fun, with great images. Images from this Color Run can be licensed at Demotix News Agency and Alamy News Agency.

These are some of the results of our remit : family event, happiness, fun, colour.
