The energy in the Navajo reservation is nothing less than amazing. Nice job capturing the Antelope Canyons nicely, don't forget to look back on your path. No bad angle on this short and sweet path. Nice capture!

Twin Peaks



Twin Peaks is a formation at the Lower Antelope slot canyon. Only visible when looking upwards and from almost the floor level. I happen to catch this formation with great light where one peak was getting light and the other was still shaded. Hence, the difference in colors between the two peaks that form out of the wall.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo on my first visit the the Lower Antelope canyon. I had previously visited the Upper Antelope canyon the year before.
Time
It was an early morning tour in December. I like going in the morning in the winter months for a few reasons. One, there's less people and two I like the light at that time of day there.
Lighting
Well, often you are "chasing" the light in the canyon. The light changes often and rapidly there. So sometimes something you couldn't get a good photograph of before you can come back too and get a better shot of later on. Two good tips is to have a good guide and as you're walking scout out possible shots for later on.
Equipment
For this shot I used my Nikon D800 and Tokina 17-35 F4 lens. I did have a tripod, however, for this particular image I had to squeeze down on the ground to capture the two peaks together. The foremost peak you see in the image is right about chest height for me.
Inspiration
I love the unique! I like to find and capture the out the ordinary. Let's face it.. The Antelope canyons are truly amazing and unique. But it's finding the extra special gems there that I look for. It's all about your preception and looking at something from several angles.
Editing
Camera Raw and Photoshop. I'm not a big fan of Lightroom honestly. I used camera raw to reduce the highlights and improve shadows. I used photoshop mostly just to use curve adjustments and masks to bring out the colors of the sandstone.
In my camera bag
Now I carry a Pelican case with me. It holds my two cameras, a D800 and D7100 that I use. For lenses I have a Nikon 50mm 1.4, a Nikon 70-200 F4 that I love, a Tokina 17-35 F4 and a Tamron 24-70 2.8 lens. In my backpack I have a Nioon 24-120 F4 and a Nikon 18-200 DX lens. I also carry an array of trigger remotes, a Dolica and Manfrotto tripods that are light and easy to hike with.
Feedback
Weather plays a lot into capturing great photos there. You need good amounts of Sunlight to get good photos. But more importantly, you need to take the photographers tour no matter who you go through. It requires more equipment and more money but you also get 2 hours instead of one hour in the canyons. Plus, I've found that you get better guides this way too. A tripod is hard to carry but a must as some shoots will require you to bracket your image and use post processing to get a well balanced final image. The summer time is much busier but also offers a reward of light rays that peak into the canyons! So plan ahead about when and what time you want to go as the tours fill up fast.
