If you have been following my blog, you have seen two excerpts from a photo shoot I did in Jerome, Arizona (Classic Car & Vacant Building). On that same day, we continued our journey over to Sedona, Arizona. Sedona is famous for many things, (arts, energy vortexes and nature’s beauty). I love the area for all of the natural red rock outcroppings. They truly are a photographers opportunity for some incredible photographs. Today, I have attached 5 shots from that outing.
Red Rock 1
What I liked about this shot was the three distinct depths to the capture. The foreground and the background do a great job framing the focal point of the towers of rock outcropping. I love the lighting with the shadows accenting the shapes of the rock structures. The amount of detail in each of the depths pulls your eye into the frame to study it more closely.
Red Rock 2
This is a more difficult shot as the bulk of the rock face is in the shadows. If my goal was to get the best shot possible of this particular rock formation, I would want to wait until the sunlight hit it differently. Since that wasn’t my goal and I only had a limited time in the area, I still think this came out as an interesting shot.
Red Rock 3
I love the color and detail of this one. You can see the different shades of white and red in the many layers of strata and the sunlight was perfect to highlight the marks of erosion on this rock face.
Red Rock 4
The beauty of the area is incredible as this shot attests to. The lighting for this was perfect as the shadows highlight the variation in structure and shape of the rock formations.
Red Rock 5
This final shot reminds me of a dome shaped building. I love the detail of the features against that deep blue sky.
So that’s an excerpt from that particular photo shoot in the Sedona area. Thoughts?
