Shooting in Canyons at Midday

Midday light definitely isn’t ideal for most wide-angle photography. But here’s a situation where bright, harsh light was exactly what we wanted… At least indirectly. In this quick video, I show you the lighting conditions we were working with in Mule Canyon, and how reflected light enhanced the colors in the photos we want to capture.

And here are a couple of the images I took that day. Pretty incredible place, isn’t it?

About Author Varina Patel

There is nothing more remarkable to me than the power of nature. It is both cataclysmic and subtle. Slow and continuous erosion by water and wind can create landscapes every bit as astonishing as those shaped by catastrophic events – and minuscule details can be as breathtaking as grand vistas that stretch from one horizon to the other. Nature is incredibly diverse. Burning desert sands and mossy riverbanks… Brilliant sunbeams and fading alpenglow… Silent snowfall and raging summer storms… Each offers a unique opportunity. I am irresistibly drawn to the challenge of finding my next photograph, and mastering the skills required to capture it effectively.
