Antelope Canyon is one of the most photographed canyons in the world, and for good reason – its beauty is unparalleled. If you’re looking to up your photography game, a guided tour through Antelope Canyon is a must. Operated exclusively by local Navajo people, Antelope Canyon Navajo Tours offers a truly authentic experience that will help you capture some amazing photos!

Here are some of the key photography tips to keep in mind when you’re exploring Antelope Canyon:

1. Timing is everything. Antelope Canyon’s sandstone walls reflect and refract light from the sun, creating beautiful patterns on the canyon walls. If you want to capture Antelope Canyon’s famous light beams, plan your trip for Spring or Summer during our midday tour when the sun is at its highest and brightest for the best photos. Fall and Winter offer new and unique colors that provide amazing photo opportunities as well.

2. Shoot wide angles. Antelope Canyon is vast, and its walls are very high; make sure to capture it all by shooting in wide angles. You can always crop your images afterward for use on popular social media platforms.

3. Get creative. Antelope Canyon is a photographer’s paradise. Don’t be afraid to get creative and experiment with different angles, depths of field, and shutter speeds for unique shots. If you’re using a DSLR camera you will need to take a moment to dial in your settings. Our helpful tour guides can make recommendations for settings as well.

4. Bring the right equipment. Antelope Canyon is known for its low levels of light in some areas, so make sure you bring a camera or phone that performs well in low-light conditions. A wide-angle and/or telephoto lens can also help you get the full Antelope Canyon experience.

By following these tips, you’re sure to capture some amazing photos on your Antelope Canyon tour! Schedule your tour today and start snapping.
