The thumbnail made me believe it was the first sight from a baby being born.

Theoretically speaking.

New homescreen

This looks exactly like the desktop background that comes on Macs

A similar rule that I taught myself is to take a quick look in the opposite direction of the crowd. You might see something staring you in the face that everyone else too distracted to notice. Great photo!

In antelope canyon, that's all you can do, because you are packed in like sardines.

:)

Fun fact: my recent photography trip to Baffin Island yielded several photos for a collaboration between Microsoft and I ;)

The title for the photo is “Out” (on my Insta) as a nod to that feel of the image ;)

This almost looks like a James Turrell Skyspace

Shooting details if you're interested!

One of my favorite compositions inside Lower Antelope Canyon -- Using a tripod I shot 3 different exposures during the harsh midday sun (best time to shoot slot canyons because of how the light filters down through the sandstone). I blended the photos together by hand using 'luminosity masking' (basically using selections by value range where black = transparent and white = opaque), it allows me to paint in the tonal range from each exposure (I shoot 1 photo that is a baseline, expose for darks, expose for highlights) that I'm blending to pull a higher dynamic range photo out of the 3.

I make tutorials about how to do this stuff for my YouTube channel if you're interested in learning
