Reflections of the Mexico Pavilion

By | December 4th, 2015|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

The wonderful thing about puddles everywhere is it presents you with the opportunity to shoot locations you've done previously in new and unique ways. This is an angle I likely would have never shot in a vertical of the Mexico Pavilion if not for the wonderful puddle that drew me to this spot to shoot for [...]

Cinderella Castle’s Backside

By | December 3rd, 2015|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Cinderella Castle, I've shot it so many times and so many different ways I've lost count but I still keep coming back for more. And now with the new ramps and turrets it'll help mix it up even more. Unfortunately this past trip they were still doing work on the front side of the castle and [...]

Japan Pavilion – Epcot

By | December 2nd, 2015|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

This was my first shot after the epic downpour during illuminations. The rain had subsided but was still drizzling. This prevented some unique shooting challenges for the night. I bracket my shots and often use remote mode so that when I press the trigger on my remote it will shoot all the shots in my bracket [...]

Belle’s Quiet Village

By | December 1st, 2015|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

It's great when the opening line of the first song of the movie just gives you the perfect title. Of course that lyric is "Little town It's a quiet village" and so I've named it fittingly Belle's Quiet Village. This was a shot I had on my list from the outset of the trip as I [...]

A Monorail’s Reflection of Spaceship Earth

By | November 30th, 2015|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

I haven't done a Monorail Monday post in quite some time so I figured it was time for another one. This was one of the last shots I took the night of the epic downpour at Epcot but one of my favorites. I found this nice puddle to use as a reflection for Spaceship Earth and [...]

Goofy Bokeh

By | 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 [...]

The Wonders of Life & the Pavilion’s Death

By | November 25th, 2015|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

It really is unfortunate that The Wonders of Life pavilion has become from what it once was. Perhaps one day this pavilion (along with some others) will get the much needed makeover they need to help revitalize Epcot once again. Still, I'm thankful for the opportunity to photograph the pavilion all lit up during the Food [...]

Trip to the Lunching Pad

By | November 24th, 2015|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

I've been shooting Walt Disney World for a couple years now to the point I feel I've covered a lot of the common angles for the various go to shots. One thing I tried to do this trip was mix in some off angle shots to try and switch things up a bit. In this case [...]

Seabase Alpha

By | November 23rd, 2015|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

This is a shot I've actually wanted to get the past few trips and for one reason or another it just never worked out. On the trip previous to this one, on the day I planned to get it and unbeknownst to me, the Seas closed early for a private party. This time I just arrived [...]

The Country Bear Jamboree Bear Band

By | November 21st, 2015|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

I don't know what the overall public barometer on the Country Bear Jamboree is but I will admit I absolutely love it. I love the old school charm and the songs are catchy and humorous. It has a great nostalgic feel and I love that you can hear the animatronics when they move, adding to that [...]
