Great composition. Love the colours.

Behind The Lens

Location
Lower Antelope Canyon near Page, Arizona, USA
Time
Around early afternoon.
Lighting
If you ever notice, images of these slot canyons rarely shows the sky. This is due to the inevitable bright white exposure wash that is hard to control.
Equipment
Sony A77, Sony 24-105mm, Benro Tripod, Remote Shutter Release
Inspiration
Slot canyons like these were one of my top choices for creating images. Because the light plays on the sandstone in ways that change wildly from hour to hour, it is easy to believe why the Navajo regarded these unusual natural areas to have great spiritual significance.
Editing
This image fuses three frames of different exposures and two different time slices to get the final hand blended photograph. No computer HDR.
In my camera bag
Sony A850, Sony A77, Sony A7R, Sony Lenses, Cine Backpack, Cokin Filters (ND & Grads), Remote Shutter Release, Care & Clean Supplies, Lightning Trigger, Benro Tripod, Mini Tripod, CP Polarizers, Big Stopper, Extra Batteries & Cards, Cell Phone, Beanie Hat & Hand warmers, treats!
Feedback
Experiment with multi-exposure images to get a fully high dynamic range image. Takes patience and extra work, but show the world photographs that most photographers run from. And have fun!
