Sunset Boulevard Nights

Today's shot is another shot with the Nikon 35 1.4. In addition to the tighter view I get with this lens I love just how natural the scenes look with this lens. Per usual, the main difficulty with any shot that contains neon, is blending the neon correctly from an underexposure. It's tough to get right, and [...]

Tomorrowland Nights

On my most recent trip I rented the Nikon 35 1.4 for dark ride shooting but ended up using it quite a bit as my walk around lens too. As a result, I ended up with some tighter shots than trips previous. I do enjoy that the tighter shots allow you to get a somewhat closer [...]

Cinderella Castle Nights

Main Street USA is a lot of fun after hours for photographers, but I find the tendency is often to go for the wider-angle lenses. There are some great shots to be had with the longer focal length lenses as well. This is a shot I've been working on perfecting my last few trips with the [...]

Spaceship Earth Nights

By | 2017-06-05T12:27:23+00:00 April 18th, 2017|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Today's photo makes use of my stars technique I shared yesterday. Although I haven't posted anything new in a while I have been doing a bit of editing. One of the things I've particularly been focusing on lately are the highlights in my photos. I'm not a fan of the sharp transitions from midtones to highlights [...]

Blue Sky Spaceship Earth

By | 2017-03-10T09:06:58+00:00 March 10th, 2017|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

I took this shot as I was heading to the front of the park to begin shooting towards the back for sunset. The nice blue gradient in the sky and the clouds helped add some interest and the bit of golden color starting to reflect off Spaceship Earth made me stop to take this shot. I [...]

One Day It Will All Be Yours

By | 2017-02-17T09:15:09+00:00 February 17th, 2017|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

This is a pretty standard Partners/Cinderella Castle shot with the new(ish) color scheme on the castle. Once again, I went as high as I could with my tripod on the edge of the planter to make the shot feel like your floating slightly above the ground. It is a small twist on the shot but I [...]

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 [...]

Quiet Night in Hollywood Studios

As I'm slowly getting back into the swing of editing some new photos I wanted to pick something easy to start. This particular shot isn't too challenging with the only real problem being the few neon signs. It's nothing a bracketed set of photos, luminosity masks and some selective masking can't fix though. This edit took [...]

Cinderella Castle and the Purple Sky

By | 2017-01-25T08:58:28+00:00 January 25th, 2017|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , |

I know it's been quite some time since I posted a new photo. I've been incredibly busy the past few months and as a result kinda fell off editing (I still have tons of unedited pics from my trip in October). When you get out of a groove sometimes it's difficult to get back in it. [...]

Purple Fantasy

By | 2016-12-05T08:49:54+00:00 December 5th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

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 [...]
