Snow White Flowers & Dwarfs

It feels like I have been on a Magic Kingdom tear lately so let's switch it back over to Epcot today. The whole reason for my last visit after all was for the Flower & Garden Festival. There is nothing to crazy going on for this shot. I used the Nikon 70-200 2.8 VRII and stood [...]

Flowers of Beauty and the Beast

By | June 15th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Today's photo is probably a very common angle shot of the Beast and Belle topiaries displayed in the France Pavilion. I did bend down slight so there would be more flowers in the foreground and the shot would be more looking up at the topiaries. That's likely how the shot turns out for most people anyways [...]

The really wonderful thing about the Flower & Garden Festival, besides the food of course, is all the wonderful flower topiaries through the park. It really opens up a lot of photo options, especially in places where there may not have been a really great photo opportunity before. I'm not one for shooting out across the [...]

Cinderella & Prince Charming Sun Dance

For this shot, I definitely did a bit of working the scene first. I will start taking shots and moving around and making adjustments until I get something I feel is the shot I was looking for. Especially with the topiaries, the most obvious shot may not be the one I want. I don't want to [...]

No night of shooting at Epcot is complete without a few final shots at the entrance to Epcot in front of the planter and Spaceship Earth. This is especially true during the Flower & Garden Festival with all the great flowers and topiaries present. Of course I got the classic head on shot but I wanted [...]

Midnight in Paris

By | May 20th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

The title of this shot is really a happy accident. I processed this shot and was thinking of a name and I really wanted to name this Midnight in Paris after the movie, which I really loved. Imagine my surprise when I look at the clock and it was at exactly midnight. Of course, I HAD [...]

Lady and the Tramp in Italy

The Flower and Garden Festival once again helped send me in a direction of a shot I may have otherwise ignored. The Lady and the Tramp topiaries brought me to this particular spot and I loved being able to utilize some of the Italy pavilion in the background here to expand the shot. A head on [...]

Flower & Garden Festival Red Monorail

This shot has seemingly become the classic go to Flower & Garden Festival shot over the years. Still like a shot of Cinderella Castle it's hard to resist as it's just a perfect representation of the Flower & Garden Festival at Epcot. I have a couple different shots from this spot throughout the day in fact, [...]

The Clock is Ticking for Captain Hook

The Peter Pan display at the Flower & Garden Festival is in my opinion one of the best ones. Having Peter Pan on the roof as though he's about to take off and fly over Hook and the Croc below is really great. I also really love the layout of the Croc to Hook and they [...]

Snow White & the Three Dwarfs

I have missed the Flower & Garden Festival several years in a row now and I couldn't let another year pass by. Our main trip this year is going to be during the fall but I was able to get a few days off to head down for a 2 day trip. Shooting Flower & Garden [...]
