Quiet Night in Hollywood Studios

By | February 2nd, 2017|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

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 [...]

Sunburst Gertie

By | 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 [...]

Crossroads of Neon

By | October 27th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

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. [...]

Sunset Boulevard Perspective

By | October 18th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Today's shot is another one with the Nikon 35 1.4. Again, it gives me a tighter view that I think offers a nice look down Sunset Boulevard. You will notice a few stragglers at the end of the boulevard. Interestingly this was after the park had closed but before Fantasmic had let out. I was able [...]

Lights, Camera, Blue Hour

By | October 13th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

I have done this shot before but always at night and in a vertical orientation.  I had been thinking it would be cool at blue hour so I made sure to make a stop here when the time came. I went with a horizontal framing this time, which I think I prefer now that I am [...]

Pluto’s Palace

By | April 6th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

One night a couple hours before Hollywood Studios closed I wasn’t really in the mood for rides. I really just wanted to do some shooting but of course that can be problematic if you want people free shots. I ended up wandering around the park for a few hours shooting different angles where I could get [...]

The Unobstructed Great Movie Ride

By | March 24th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

Though Hollywood Studios is seriously lacking now there is a lot to look forward to in the future. For me the removal of the hat was the first step towards the revitalization of the park. It’s just a wonderful feeling to have this unobstructed view back and I was absolutely thrilled to be able to get [...]

Star Tours: AT-AT & the Forest Moon of Endor

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

I’ve been a huge Star Wars fan for a long time now. So of course I’m super stoked for the new Star Wars land coming to Hollywood Studios. While Star Tours is a fine ride there’s really not a lot from a photography stand point. I am really looking forward to being able to photograph an [...]

Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular Finale

By | February 24th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

I've been running behind today but I wanted to share a photo even if I don't have time for my usual more in-depth write up so I chose this shot from the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular I had previously edited. This is from the finale of the show. I shot it with the Nikon D810 [...]

Prime Time Cafe

By | February 17th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Wandering around Hollywood Studios before closing one night I was walking past Prime Time Cafe when it struck me I did not have a single photo of the location. Fortunately even though it wasn't closing time yet, this area of the park is dead in the late evenings. I'm actually surprised a bit surprised I never [...]
