Tomorrowland Nights

On my most recent trip I rented the Nikon 35 1.4 for dark ride shooting but ended up using it quite a bit as my walk around lens too. As a result, I ended up with some tighter shots than trips previous. I do enjoy that the tighter shots allow you to get a somewhat closer [...]

Cinderella Castle Nights

Main Street USA is a lot of fun after hours for photographers, but I find the tendency is often to go for the wider-angle lenses. There are some great shots to be had with the longer focal length lenses as well. This is a shot I've been working on perfecting my last few trips with the [...]

One Day It Will All Be Yours

This is a pretty standard Partners/Cinderella Castle shot with the new(ish) color scheme on the castle. Once again, I went as high as I could with my tripod on the edge of the planter to make the shot feel like your floating slightly above the ground. It is a small twist on the shot but I [...]

Southerly Kingdom or the Shifting Focus

By | 2017-02-16T08:50:22+00:00 February 16th, 2017|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

This shot was taken with my Nikon 14-24 2.8 using my Grizzly beanbag. The camera was supported just above the ground with the beanbag and I used it to tilt the camera forward so that the camera is pointing towards the ground and not the sky. I then chose F2.8 and focused in the center of [...]

Cinderella Castle and the Purple Sky

I know it's been quite some time since I posted a new photo. I've been incredibly busy the past few months and as a result kinda fell off editing (I still have tons of unedited pics from my trip in October). When you get out of a groove sometimes it's difficult to get back in it. [...]

Purple Fantasy

This shot is similar to some others I've done but I have a little bit different framing here. I used the two spires on the left to frame Cinderella Castle which I think looks really cool. I also opted to use the Nikon 35 1.4 as opposed to the 14-24 I used before to get a [...]

Tomorrowland 35

I have taken many ultra-wide shots of Tomorrowland so I decided to give the Nikon 35 1.4 a go through the land. Once again, it gives me a tighter view that really brings some of the details such as the signs into larger focus. The signs too are the most difficult part of shooting Tomorrowland. It [...]

A Beautiful Day at Cinderella Castle

By | 2016-11-18T08:54:13+00:00 November 18th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

The vast majority of photos I post are either night or sunset photos. I gravitate towards these because of the beauty of the light, whether it be from the sunset, or artificial lighting in the parks. There is something beautiful to be found in a gorgeous blue sky with puffy white clouds too though. I do [...]

The Noiseless Bear Band Bears

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 [...]

The Ominousness of Cinderella Castle

With new lighting on Cinderella Castle (so I am told) comes new color schemes as well. This one in particular is very cool looking and I really like the way it reflects on the ground as well. I am curious if some of these will stick around all year round or if they are only for [...]
