The Noiseless Bear Band Bears

By | November 2nd, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

The Country Bear Jamboree is not difficult to photograph. In fact, I would say it's one of the easiest shows to photograph at Disney World. I have shot this show with the Nikon 14-24, 24-70 and 70-200 2.8 lenses respectively. Over time dropped the ISO as I have improved my holding technique and my shots have [...]

Splash Mountain’s Magnificence

I love the fact that there is no crazy light pollution directly behind Frontierland. It really lets the stars shine through and help complete the frontier feel of the shots from this area. It just would not work as well if you had a huge light pollution glow behind the mountains.

The Sky is Blue but I Hear Thunder Part 2

Today's shot is a standard shot of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad but I could not resist that wonderful cloudy blue sky. I shot this with the Nikon 14-24 2.8 @ 14mm. In doing so, I was able to keep the tracks on the right from being cut off which is nice for my OCD ;)

Thunderset

I was wandering around shooting the sunset from various spots when this spot next to the Haunted Mansion caught my eye. The color was really popping behind Thunder Mountain. This was a spot I knew of but had never stopped to take a shot. I tried a few different versions of this shot, one being a [...]

Splash Mountain & the Setting Sun

By | June 23rd, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Today's shot is another favorite spot of mine, especially during sunset. I always seem to get some awesome glow as the sun sets behind Splash Mountain. I did do a few things slightly different for this shot. First, I put my tripod on top of a trashcan to get some extra height and clear the fence [...]

Splash into the Night

I haven't done a Splash Mountain photo in a while and it has been especially a long time since I did a night time version. This is your standard straight on view but one I feel never tires. It's a fantastic spot for a photo. Fortunately, the sky was quite clear over Splash and I was [...]

Frontierland’s Setting Sun

This shot really came together even better than I had imagined. To start I was just chasing the sun which inevitably lead me over to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. I noticed the Liberty Belle making its way down the Rivers of America and quickly setup my shot and fired off a few shots to make sure [...]

Brer Fox Captures Brer Rabbit

Every trip to Disney World thousands of photos. Of these probably 30-40% are dark ride photos. For some reason though I end up sharing very few of them so I keep asking myself why I’m even bothering to shoot all those photos if I’m never going to share them. Well I’m going to try and change [...]

Rivers of America Thunder Mountain Sunset

By | March 2nd, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

I spent almost an entire golden hour one evening shooting around Rivers of America, Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain and Frontierland in general. It’s one of my favorite areas to photograph sunset as I feel the golden tones from the sunset go really great with all the earthy tones in Frontierland. […]

Splash Mountain

Splash Mountain is another one of those spots that I always have to shoot even though I have many photos already. It doesn’t hurt it’s an absolutely fantastic spot for some sunset photos as well. I always get at least 1 sunset shot of it if not more during my visit. […]
