Behind The Lens

Location

Antelope Canyon, near Page, AZ.

Time

We were able to get into the slot canyon at around 1:00PM and were there until around 2:15PM. The light was a little strong, but I was able to edit out most of the problems in post.

Lighting

Lighting changes from spot to spot in the canyon. The best bet is to work the kinks out in post if you can. Editing has been and will continue to be my best friend when it comes to photographing in canyons.

Equipment

Canon Rebel T5 with an 18-35mm Canon lens. No flash, no tripod, just an ISO setting of 400 and a lot of luck in the capture.

Inspiration

I've been taking photographs since I was 10 years old. I built my first dark room when I was 14. And I've loved photography ever since. The inspiration of this photo really comes from the inspiration of the trip I took to Southern Utah and Arizona. I needed to take some much needed time off from work and needed to find a little peace in nature. This photograph was one of my many stops on that trip towards finding that peace.

Editing

I always do post-processing on my photos. This particular piece started out in Lightroom as a RAW file, where I added a purple gradient to it. I altered the contrast, dulled the saturation, and increased the sharpness. Not too fancy, but when I saw the shadows and the sand particles really pop, I stopped editing.

In my camera bag

5ft Tripod, my Canon Rebel T5, 10 spare fully charged battery replacements, a 1 TB portable hard drive, 1 18-35mm lens, 1 35-50mm lens, 1 10mm fisheye lens, polarizing, UV/haze and other lens filters, a Canon Timer Remote, and a lens cleaning kit.

Feedback

Just remember that when you're in Antelope Canyon, to take into consideration the light from the cracks above. It can make or break a shot. Unless you want to spend money to continuously take the tour, which is fast moving, you have to make your shots count. I would also suggest taking the photography tour, and make sure you call ahead for reservations, which are needed. Also, remember that the beauty of Antelope Canyon is in the story the rocks tell, that of water and wind. Look for the patterns in the rock to guide you to the perfect shot. As my last piece of advice, just have fun and take as many pictures as possible, so when you're done editing them 1 year later, you'll have the money and time to go back and do it all over again.
