Sunset Boulevard Nights

By | 2017-05-02T09:29:39+00:00 May 2nd, 2017|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

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 [...]

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 [...]

Sunburst Gertie

By | 2016-11-09T08:39:06+00:00 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

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 | 2016-10-18T09:01:17+00:00 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 | 2016-10-27T08:57:54+00:00 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 | 2016-10-27T08:57:59+00:00 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 | 2016-10-27T08:58:00+00:00 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 | 2016-04-20T16:14:30+00:00 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 | 2016-04-20T16:15:14+00:00 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 [...]
