Jungles and the Mayan World…  There is so much to appreciate about Mayan temples and other structures – but as photographers, we can also play with doorways, tunnels and sections of temples to create artistic images.

Often we walk through a tunnel and come out into a gorgeous jungle environment.  With Mayan sites surrounded by rainforest, wildlife is also present.

Caves… Belize is our favorite place in the world to explore caves.  Many are easy and the whole group can enjoy learning to take colorful, unique images.  Others stay on with us and we explore more adventuresome caves, but still not that difficult.

Light – the lessons you learn about light when photographing in a cave change the way you view light and work with light in all the rest of your photography.  Rio Frio Cave is photographed in natural light coming through a large entrance and using a long exposure. Crystal Cave, St. Herman’s Cave and Joe’s Cave are photographed with several flash units.

Joe (or Jose) owns the land that several caves are on.  We climb a mountain on horses to get to them.  Our visits help support Joe’s small business. He is a kind man who wants to take good care of these caves – our visits are very environmentally friendly, we are very careful.  He also helps us with lighting.  Join us on a Belize Adventure in 2017 and we will show you how to control multiple flash units.
