Spaceship Earth Nights

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

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

A Lonesome Night in the UK Pavilion

I have done another shot from this location with the Nikon 14-24 but this time I tried the Nikon 35 1.4. I am really happy with how it turned out. The tighter view gives the image a more intimate feel to me. I also really like the little starbursts on the lamps. And of course shooting [...]

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 [...]

A Frozen Ever After

I will start by saying the animatronics for the new Frozen Ever After ride are the best currently at Walt Disney World. They are incredibly dynamic and life like and the Imagineers have done a great job at bringing them to life. This comes with a few minor issues from a photography standpoint. Because the faces [...]

Universe of Solar & Kinetic Energy

If I am going to retake a shot I've done before I like to ask myself how I can do that shot better. Otherwise, I am not sure if there is much point to retaking the shot. In this case, I had shot from this angle into the sun but did not capture the monorail. Plussing [...]

Serenity of Japan

I am sorry for the lack of new shots lately. A combination of lack of time and a lack of shots that I felt motivated to work on has had me sharing a bunch of older stuff (on Instagram at least). I've got a new trip approaching soon however so I wanted to get through the [...]
