Southerly Kingdom or the Shifting Focus

By | 2017-02-16T08:50:22+00:00 February 16th, 2017|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

This shot was taken with my Nikon 14-24 2.8 using my Grizzly beanbag. The camera was supported just above the ground with the beanbag and I used it to tilt the camera forward so that the camera is pointing towards the ground and not the sky. I then chose F2.8 and focused in the center of [...]

Spaceship Earth Lemons

This is another shot I have done previously but always with my Nikon 14-24 2.8 at F2.8. Since I had the Nikon 35 1.4 for this trip I had to give it another go for two reasons. First of course is that bokeh at 1.4 and second the 35mm field of view that brings Spaceship Earth [...]

Lights, Camera, Blue Hour

By | 2016-10-27T08:57:54+00:00 October 13th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

I have done this shot before but always at night and in a vertical orientation.  I had been thinking it would be cool at blue hour so I made sure to make a stop here when the time came. I went with a horizontal framing this time, which I think I prefer now that I am [...]

Cinderella’s Bokeh Fantasy

This has really become one of my favorite things to shoot over the past few years. I continue to experiment with different angles and its lead to some results I'm really happy with. I have turned to my Nikon 70-200 more often than not for this shot and this was no exception. I shot at F3.2 [...]

Cinderella Fountain Statue

I originally had a different shot in mind for this location but thanks to the eternal construction walls of the Magic Kingdom I had to seek out a different shot than what I originally had in mind. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise as I ended up really loving the shot I wound [...]

Today’s shot is another one in the series of Magic Kingdom statues in the hub. I have most ingenuously combined Pinocchio and bokeh to create today’s photo title: Pinokeh. I know right? […]

Donald Duck’s Moment in the Lights

By | 2016-04-20T16:14:33+00:00 March 3rd, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these little statue shots so I decided to give this one with Donald Duck a go. This is actually one of my favorites from the statue series as the light bokeh behind him turned out just wonderful. I too love his pose as if he’s showing you [...]

Minnie Mouse & Main Street Lights

By | 2016-04-20T16:16:38+00:00 December 28th, 2015|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

I photographed all the statues in their new locations this last trip, but I think this shot of the Minnie Mouse statue is my favorite. The lights of Main Street USA behind her turned out just fantastic and really fill the background of the frame behind her and create a nice contrast to the darker tones [...]

Hollywood Studio’s Classic Cars & Neon

By | 2016-10-27T08:58:17+00:00 December 8th, 2015|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

I personally really love all of Hollywood Studio's Classic Cars. They help offer a unique element to various shots around the park. For this shot I really wanted to test out the Sigma 24 1.4 I had rented from Borrowlenses to see how the bokeh was. Since this was my first night shooting and I always [...]

Goofy Bokeh

By | 2016-04-20T16:17:35+00:00 November 27th, 2015|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

When these little statues were in the hub, like the Goofy one here, I used to love trying out different angles shooting them to try and get interesting backgrounds. I especially love shooting them from a bit of a distance with the Nikon 70-200 2.8 as you can get a really shallow depth of field and [...]
