    Honestly, I'd use a digital camera where you can see your results right there, and adjust. If they don't request film, don't make it hard on yourself.

    There was someone documenting petroglyphs a few years ago. He was shooting at night with cross-polarized light. One light at a raking angle, polarized, a second polarizer on the lens. More documentary than art, but he was able to make them clearly visible.

    I wish I could take credit for it, but the artist is long gone. Another reason to run the images through Photoshop is that it makes it pretty easy to "erase" the bullet holes. Many of the easily accessible petroglyphs are all shot up.

    You could also use Photoshop to compile many petroglyps into one shot. And put them on a different rock. Just kidding. I wouldn't make major changes to a shot like that, but that's me.

    Sorry to report I was unable to find the ones I was looking for last weekend. Maybe this weekend. A bit surprised to see how much larger the restricted 29 Palms military area is per abundant signage. The Delorme map has something very different.

    Would strong side lighting be any help? What about post processing?

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!
