Zion 2012: Trip Preview

Immediately following my trip to Coyote Gulch, I headed to one of my favorite locations for photography — Zion National Park. I spent a week in this great National Park, and exposed many sheets of film.

Over the next few weeks, you’ll see my video journals and images from this trip. Much like the Coyote Gulch trip, I’m using a video-only format. This allows me to get all these videos posted before I head out on my next trip. I’ll likely bring back the written format on future trips, but I didn’t take notes on this trip — so it’s quite difficult to remember the exact details and what was going through my mind.

    Looking forward to your report. Especially since your videos and images inspired me to go up the Narrows myself, and I now have a personal relationship to the Narrows.

      That’s so awesome that you visited the Narrows after seeing my videos. It’s such a great place, and there are so many wonderful opportunities for photography. Even though this was my 4th annual visit to the Narrows, there were plenty of shots left to capture.

    Nice intro. I see you are using the D800 for video and it looks really good.

    • Ben Horne Says:

      The D800 is a blast to work with for video. I’m definitely looking forward to utilizing it on my future trips as well.

    Ben ever consider going medium format?! Still get great image quality and so much weight off your back literally! A nice 6×7 camera would be a nice compromise.

    • Ben Horne Says:

      I think I’m spoiled by LF — it’s not just an image quality thing — it’s the ability to use movements to get a sharp photo, and also to tweak the relationship between foreground and background. It’s definitely a burden at times, but it’s worth it in the long run.
