Purple Fantasy

This shot is similar to some others I've done but I have a little bit different framing here. I used the two spires on the left to frame Cinderella Castle which I think looks really cool. I also opted to use the Nikon 35 1.4 as opposed to the 14-24 I used before to get a [...]

Spaceship Earth & the Case of the Missing Fountain Water

How do you know you have stayed in Epcot a long time past closing? I am guessing having the fountain water shut off on you might be a sign. Epcot has become the easiest park to shoot and close out after hours. I rarely even see security, never mind feeling pressured to leave. I had been [...]

Tomorrowland 35

I have taken many ultra-wide shots of Tomorrowland so I decided to give the Nikon 35 1.4 a go through the land. Once again, it gives me a tighter view that really brings some of the details such as the signs into larger focus. The signs too are the most difficult part of shooting Tomorrowland. It [...]

A Beautiful Day at Cinderella Castle

By | 2016-11-18T08:54:13+00:00 November 18th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

The vast majority of photos I post are either night or sunset photos. I gravitate towards these because of the beauty of the light, whether it be from the sunset, or artificial lighting in the parks. There is something beautiful to be found in a gorgeous blue sky with puffy white clouds too though. I do [...]

The Sky’s on Fire but I’m Hunting Monorails

I have shot many sunsets at Walt Disney World but every occasionally you will get on that is extra special. This was one of those occasions. The 2 days preceding the arrival of Hurricane Matthew were some of the most awesome sunsets I have witnessed at Walt Disney World. Each evening the sky came alive in [...]

Anna, Kristoff, and Sven

Today I have another shot from the new-ish Frozen Ever After ride. Shooting is not terribly difficult with the main challenge in my mind being the highly articulated faces. As I mentioned before you may capture the perfect composition and catch a weird face due to them being animated. Shooting rides like this I usually shoot [...]

Sunburst Gertie

By | 2016-11-09T08:39:06+00:00 November 9th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

This is one of those on the fly photos. I'm walking past Gertie on my way to Star Tours, I notice the sunburst, so I stop and fire off a couple quick shots. I like to go with some sort of tilt with Gertie shots as I feel like it works well with her shape. The [...]

The Ominousness of Cinderella Castle

By | 2016-10-28T08:23:43+00:00 October 28th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

With new lighting on Cinderella Castle (so I am told) comes new color schemes as well. This one in particular is very cool looking and I really like the way it reflects on the ground as well. I am curious if some of these will stick around all year round or if they are only for [...]

Crossroads of Neon

This shot really requires a lot of patience. Shooting directly at the exit and wanting a people free image means you are going to have to wait a while. Still, it is a rarer shot so I think it is worth it. I got the bonus here of the plane trails coming out of Mickey's hand. [...]

Spaceship Earth Lemons

By | 2016-10-25T08:40:23+00:00 October 25th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

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 [...]
