Sunset Boulevard Nights

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 [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

Pluto’s Palace

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 [...]

Spaceship Earth, Fountain of Nations & Rain

By | 2016-10-27T08:58:05+00:00 February 1st, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

This shot of Spaceship Earth and the Fountain of nations is a popular one and one I've done myself as well. The rain really helps take it to another level though I feel. The wet saturated neon reflecting on the ground is really great in person and brings a new character to the area. Shooting & [...]

Tomorrowland at a Distance

I've shot the Tomorrowland entrance a couple different ways over the years but I think my favorite is shooting it far away with a telephoto lens. Using the telephoto from far away as opposed to close up with the ultra-wide makes everything appear very accurate with very little if any geometric distortion. Additionally I love how [...]

Hollywood Studio’s Classic Cars & Neon

By | 2016-10-27T08:58:17+00:00 December 8th, 2015|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

I personally really love all of Hollywood Studio's Classic Cars. They help offer a unique element to various shots around the park. For this shot I really wanted to test out the Sigma 24 1.4 I had rented from Borrowlenses to see how the bokeh was. Since this was my first night shooting and I always [...]

Trip to the Lunching Pad

I've been shooting Walt Disney World for a couple years now to the point I feel I've covered a lot of the common angles for the various go to shots. One thing I tried to do this trip was mix in some off angle shots to try and switch things up a bit. In this case [...]
