Behind The Lens

Location
I've taken this in Utah, USA, in the Anthelope Canyon
Time
It was at midday, when the sun gets into the canyon from the top and sunrays reach the bottom
Lighting
Lighting is all natural. Not easy to manage, because of the high contrast. The most important thing is to keep the highlights in the range. And shoot raw to get the best from the shadows
Equipment
Camera was Nikon D700, here with 24-70 f:2,8 lens, Manfrotto 190 Pro tripod
Inspiration
there are so many images of the place that i had to think: "what can i do to be original?" and i decided to focus on what i was feeling while looking at this fantastic place. I did not take any picture for a few minutes to get closer to the spirit of the place. Then i was caught by the colours and the shapes, and i started looking at geometries. All became different and i realized that i had to manage the frame in an unconventional way. Neither horizontal nor vertical, i shot according to the geometries i found.
Editing
I worked the raw file to get the best of the shadows, with camera raw, that's all
In my camera bag
I have a very variable composition of my equipment, according to the kind of images i'm for. Sometimes i force myself to have limited choice (for instance i happen to go out only with a 85mm f:1,4 set at 1,4), in other cases i tend to have extremes (ultra wide angle + long tele)
Feedback
The best adived i can give is to know the place in advance, and, as i did, focus on YOUR way to represent it. And, of course, to be prepared, because you do not have much time inside, even if you take the "photo tour". Take a wide angle with you as well as a tele. And look carefully at the istograms of the images you take to see if you are not clipping highlights.
