One Day It Will All Be Yours

By | February 17th, 2017|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

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 | 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

By | January 25th, 2017|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , |

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

By | November 22nd, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

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 | 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

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 [...]

The Ominousness of Cinderella Castle

By | October 28th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

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 [...]

Partners from up High

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

Usually I shoot a shot at a regular height or I will try to get low for it. This actually seems to be the trend in general for Disney Photography. Something I never see though is someone trying to go much higher with a shot. So I decided I would try it for this shot. I [...]

Reflections of Space Mountain

While everyone was complaining about the rain during the afternoon, I was very excited at the possibility of nighttime puddle photography. Unfortunately, many of the nicer puddles dried up but there were still some for me to dive in to once the park closed. On past trips, I have just put my camera directly on the [...]
