50 pictures of the largest Festival of Colors (Holi) in the United States.

It takes place in a small farming community in Utah! At the Krishna Temple.
20,000+ people come to the event often parking miles away.
Pictures were taken by a group of 12 photographers organized by JarvieU

They had 2 countdowns (color explosions) this year.

Since the post was too long I had to divide it up into Two parts

Part 1 : Keeping the camera Clean & About Festival

Part 2 : A run down of the events & how to approach as a photographer

What to expect and Do – A picture story

  • I got there 1hr early last year.
  • Lines for the colors prior to the event are very long… but those aren’t the lines to get into the event… just to buy bags of colored flour.
  • I got a feel for the surroundings
    I took pictures of the animals.

Lines for colors can be very long but that doesn't mean you need to wait in them... that's just for buying color

Here was the blog post from a year ago

To my photographer friends out there… Go… if you dare.

I’m not saying it’s easy or totally safe for your stuff.

But i do say it’s an amazing opportunity.

If there is enough response here on the blog comments I’ll add a post about how I kept my D300 safe.

But that will be a prize for their being lets say 10 people asking. haha

Tricky… i know

But this is more or less could happen… and didn’t happen to me :)

Of course I didn’t really bring in that lens.
