Tips in photographing inside Lower Antelope Canyon. It was my dilemma, since I don’t want to screw up my photos in Lower Antelope Canyon. Yes, it’s an awesome experience but how will the others know how great it is, if you have blurry pictures πŸ˜….

I did some research and still confuse on what settings I should go for. I can always choose Manual, but, I haven’t tried this mode, ever. Or I can always go for Aperture mode. Well, to be sure I need to learn how to set up manual mode, I mean, what will be the best settings to capture this moment, right?

I did try some couple shots, 2 weeks before the tour. And hopefully it will work. Well the guide, confuse me too, since they advise to use the Program mode πŸ˜…. Well, there’s one thing to see, try to shoot as many as you like πŸ˜‚.

Here are some shots taken from my camera, with their EXIF. And, I was really happy of the output. I did 3 modes, the Manual, Program and aperture. Since there are some spots that are really dark, and there are some that have some lights.

It’s a risk to change your lens while inside since it’s dusty, and sometimes it’s windy. It wasn’t windy when we went there, but I don’t want to risk either. So I chose 20mm pancake lens, ’cause that has the lowest aperture compare to my 2 lenses. Though I also brought my cleaning kit, if ever I will need it.

The guide gave some advise too for the cellphones. To just use the vivid chrome in camera. To have some reddish or violet effect on it.

As bonus advise, if you get the chance, and I really hope you visit the Horseshoe Bend while you’re in the area, because this is really stunning! And a huge one indeed.

One Day in Horseshoe Bend, Lower Antelope Canyon and Grand Canyon

This is the first time I tried using the HDR. I was just disappointed that I had my 20mm and can’t change into wide lens, since it’s dusty too, and too much excitement that I forgot to change while in the car. Nevertheless, I was just really happy to see the Horseshoe Bend.

We planned to be there in dawn, but we didn’t beat the sun and so this is how it looks like at 7:00 am during August.

  3. This looks like a beautiful place! I am a big hiker, but I have actually never heard of lower antelope canyon before. Definitely something I am going to need to check out some day! Great pics too! I also really like that you posted your camera settings for each picture. This is really helpful to newbie photographers (like myself!)
