Quiet Night in Hollywood Studios

By | February 2nd, 2017|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

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

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 [...]

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

By | November 17th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

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

By | November 10th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

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 | 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

By | October 27th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

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. [...]

Spaceship Earth Lemons

By | October 25th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

This is another shot I have done previously but always with my Nikon 14-24 2.8 at F2.8. Since I had the Nikon 35 1.4 for this trip I had to give it another go for two reasons. First of course is that bokeh at 1.4 and second the 35mm field of view that brings Spaceship Earth [...]

Sunset Boulevard Perspective

By | October 18th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Today's shot is another one with the Nikon 35 1.4. Again, it gives me a tighter view that I think offers a nice look down Sunset Boulevard. You will notice a few stragglers at the end of the boulevard. Interestingly this was after the park had closed but before Fantasmic had let out. I was able [...]
