If you want an event that provides plenty of colour then you can’t go far wrong with a colour fun run. I took along the perfect camera and lens combination to capture the action, my Fuji X-T1 and 50-140mm lens. This combination gave me the reach to get into the action without the risk of getting covered in the brightly coloured paint powder that was flying around.
In order to capture the action I had the camera set at a shutter speed of 1/2000 second and for most of the shots I had the aperture set around the f4 mark to try and isolate the runners from the background. I set the ISO to auto knowing that it would deal with whatever combination of shutter speed and aperture I chose.
Fuji cameras are renowned for delivering great colours from their sensors and this was the type of event where there was no shortage of colour!
I’ve posted a set of pictures on Blog Preston and you can view those here but these are some additional pictures:
