One of the challenges of photographing Zion is the high contrast light. Since Zion is a deep canyon, my photos captured dark shadows against very bright, sunlit areas. So I had a hard time balancing the exposures. I don’t particularly care for shooting in HDR, but I haven’t figured out the best solution. For now, I just balanced what I could in Photoshop.
Another challenge is the scale of the canyon. Next time I go, I will have to get a wide angle lens.
Shooting in Zion was a great learning experience. I hope to improve my skills so that when I return, I’ll have better photos.
