 Sedona Arizona Photography Hot Spot

Sedona Arizona Photography Hot Spot Location

We have a friend named Bimmy in Sedona, but we lost our contact information. Hopefully, she will see this some day and contact us.

Sedona’s main attraction is its array of red sandstone formations. The formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The red rocks form an attractive backdrop for many activities, ranging from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails.

Sedona Arizona offers many specific locations to do insanely dynamic photography! Our weather was not great, so we did not get what we wanted, but we did get a whole lot of drama in the sky. The Chapel of the Holly Cross, Cathedral Rock, and the Airport view are some great locations just to name a few.  Don’t forget about night photography in Sedona. They have some pretty dark skies outside of town. Visit our dark sky information page to find out how to get information on this. Read it here. – Sedona Arizona Photography

We are returning to Sedona shortly to absorb some of its scrumptious scenery and bask in its atmosphere of energy vortexes.  Extra Eyes Photo Tours will take you to there. Pair this location up with Oak Creek Canyon like they do. www.extraeyesphototours.com

Photography Information

Lens: This area is a wide angle lens location, but there is some wildlife so if you have zoom lens keep it nearby.

Gear:  To get started doing your photography bring your tripod and your circular polarizing filters. The CPL will make your puffy white clouds burst and deepen the blue sky color around them.  It will also take the glare off the water and replace it with the reflection. Bring your tripod too.  If there is not enough light when you are shooting, you will want to use it to get some depth of field, (higher F-stop). Don’t forget your ND filter in case if you want to shoot moving waters.

Gear List at a Glance: Circular polarizing filter, neutral density filters, tripod, shutter release, wide angle and zoom lens.

When to Go: After October and before June. Use your judgment. It’s a desert. It gets hot here.

Camera Settings

Aperture Priority – It is used to get your depth of field (control how much is in focus from your subject back). If your shutter speed drops to 1/30th of a second, it is because you lack light and you will need to put your camera on a tripod to avoid blurry pictures. Anything handheld below 1/30th of a second will be blurry. The higher the “f” in number, the less light that will into the camera and your shutter speed will drop to let more light in. When your “f” number goes up, your aperture closes. At f-22 you are barely letting any light in.  Always watch your shutter speed.  When taking your shot look at the bottom of the screen through the viewfinder and check your shutter speed. Do not to let your shutter speed go too low when hand holding.  Sometimes you cannot get a super high f stop because you do not have enough light. This will happen quite often at times such as sunset. Again, put your camera on a tripod and now your photos will not blur except for any subject that is moving in the image.

You might want the opposite effect. That is when your subject is in complete focus, and the background is totally blurred called the bokeh effect. You will use your lowest F-number such as 2.8, or 3.5. Go as small as your particular lens will allow.  Shooting in Aperture Priority allows you to control this.

Read more on our Photography Techniques Page.  You can go to our waterfall photography section to learn how to shoot any moving waters.  You can also go to our Basic Photography section if you need a more detailed explanation of shutter speed or aperture priority modes.

If you don’t have a neutral density filter, you can buy one here. We highly suggest you do not go anywhere without one. It makes all the difference between lifeless images and outstanding, dynamic images.
