Spaceship Earth Nights

By | 2017-04-18T08:42:43+00:00 April 18th, 2017|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Today's photo makes use of my stars technique I shared yesterday. Although I haven't posted anything new in a while I have been doing a bit of editing. One of the things I've particularly been focusing on lately are the highlights in my photos. I'm not a fan of the sharp transitions from midtones to highlights [...]

Blue Sky Spaceship Earth

By | 2017-03-10T09:06:58+00:00 March 10th, 2017|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

I took this shot as I was heading to the front of the park to begin shooting towards the back for sunset. The nice blue gradient in the sky and the clouds helped add some interest and the bit of golden color starting to reflect off Spaceship Earth made me stop to take this shot. I [...]

One Day It Will All Be Yours

By | 2017-02-17T09:15:09+00:00 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 | 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 [...]

Spaceship Earth & the Case of the Missing Fountain Water

By | 2016-11-23T08:42:20+00:00 November 23rd, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

How do you know you have stayed in Epcot a long time past closing? I am guessing having the fountain water shut off on you might be a sign. Epcot has become the easiest park to shoot and close out after hours. I rarely even see security, never mind feeling pressured to leave. I had been [...]

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 [...]

Jellyrolls After the Storm

By | 2016-11-01T07:59:56+00:00 November 1st, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

The evening before we left Walt Disney World early to avoid Hurricane Matthew we were already starting to get some occasional bands of strong storms. This one came through with very strong rain and I feared it would not clear in time for sunset. Fortunately, it did and just before sunset really began I took this [...]

Waterrock Knob Milky Way

By | 2016-10-31T09:07:08+00:00 October 31st, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , |

After a decent sunset from Waterrock Knob (pictures to come), I decided to wait around a bit to see how visible the Milky Way would be. I was really winging it this trip so no real planning. The sky was very clear, it was quite cold and the wind was blowing like crazy. And while it's [...]

The Ominousness of Cinderella Castle

By | 2016-10-28T08:23:43+00:00 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 [...]

Spruce Flats Falls Autumn

By | 2016-10-28T08:11:16+00:00 October 28th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Spruce Flats Falls located in the Tremont area of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The trail to the falls is only a mile but still strenuous to reach. As we arrived at the falls it quickly became cloudy and the skies opened up on us for about an hour. This turned out to be in [...]
