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 [...]

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 [...]

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

By | 2016-11-22T09:12:11+00:00 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 [...]

The Sky’s on Fire but I’m Hunting Monorails

I have shot many sunsets at Walt Disney World but every occasionally you will get on that is extra special. This was one of those occasions. The 2 days preceding the arrival of Hurricane Matthew were some of the most awesome sunsets I have witnessed at Walt Disney World. Each evening the sky came alive in [...]

Anna, Kristoff, and Sven

Today I have another shot from the new-ish Frozen Ever After ride. Shooting is not terribly difficult with the main challenge in my mind being the highly articulated faces. As I mentioned before you may capture the perfect composition and catch a weird face due to them being animated. Shooting rides like this I usually shoot [...]

The Noiseless Bear Band Bears

By | 2016-11-02T08:40:11+00:00 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 [...]

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. [...]
