Looks like a lot of fun. Have you watched Mica’s “holi” vimeo from India? It is cheerful.

How did you create the effect of the constant blowing of powder?

It’s an animated GIF compiled from several photographs.

How did you protect your lenses from the dust?

I was using Canon’s 24-70 f/2.8L lens, which I think is considered weather-sealed. My 5D Mark II body is not, however, so I wrapped it in a plastic bag with a hole for the lens. It still has bits of paint ground into some of the controls.

In the end, you have to choose between keeping your equipment safely in a box or studio and being able to get photos in interesting conditions.
