This scene is probably the most famous of the Pirates of the Caribbean scenes. I can't say it's my favorite scene of the ride but it is my favorite to photograph and one of my absolute favorite scenes to edit. Shooting & Editing Pirates of the Caribbean - A Prison Life This was shot with the [...]

Pirates of the Caribbean has always been pretty easy to shoot as far as dark rides go but often very challenging to edit properly thanks to the lighting and the awful orange color casts that came with it. Fortunately all that appears to be a thing of the past. I knew the lighting had received a [...]

Like any dark ride photographer I love ride stops and was fortunate enough to have one in this difficult scene that lasted nearly 10 minutes. Unfortunately that only helps so much when the animatronics and even the wall paintings are almost constantly moving. So what I ended up doing was shooting a long exposure at a [...]

Every single trip I shoot thousands of photos, and hundreds of them are dark ride and queue shots. For whatever reason I only end up posting a handful and that's really kinda sad I have all these shots just kind of going to waste. I'm going to try once again to start mixing more of them [...]

This shot has been a nemesis of mine over the years. I've tried numerous times and always came away with a shot that just wasn't quite there. Ultimately I think something like the 85 1.4g would be the best lens for this shot but I made due with the 70-200 2.8 instead. he looks I got [...]

Peter Pan Takes the Wheel

Peter Pan's Flight, a nemesis of many dark ride shooters. It's the kind of ride where if you come away with even 1 good shot you can count it a success. Now I've shot this ride with 1.4 glass in the past and had success but this trip I was carrying 2.8 glass only. Still, I [...]
