Upper Waterhole Canyon
Slot Canyons can be one of the most difficult things to photograph for some folks. What you see with your eyes is translated to the final image very differently. The rock that is almost purple to the eye turns red as the shutter opens and absorbs the light. Sure, that could all be changed within the post processing but it lacks the inviting warmth the photographer feels in the canyon. Photographing inside is more about lines, shapes and texture, and how light changes or enhances the quality of each element. You learn to contrast shadow and highlight. You identify lines and the depth of which the light emphasizes their existence. It isn’t about capturing a beautiful landscape, instead is all about the graphic and how it can capture mood. If you have never been to one, it is worth visiting and hopefully photographing as well.
