Fall Blue Ridge Parkway Drive

By | October 26th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

I am taking a big detour for today's shot away from Walt Disney World and into the Blue Ridge Mountains just outside of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. I have a deep love for this time of year when all the leaves start changing colors. Somehow, though I have never been able to visit the [...]

Lights, Camera, Blue Hour

By | October 13th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

I have done this shot before but always at night and in a vertical orientation.  I had been thinking it would be cool at blue hour so I made sure to make a stop here when the time came. I went with a horizontal framing this time, which I think I prefer now that I am [...]

The Muppets Present Great Moments in American History

By | October 7th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

I’m back from another Disney trip and even though it was cut a day short thanks to Hurricane Matthew I’m very glad to have been able to see the VERY new Muppet show at the Magic Kingdom. The first day I attempted to see it I actually missed it as they were having technical difficulties. This [...]

Snow White Flowers & Dwarfs

It feels like I have been on a Magic Kingdom tear lately so let's switch it back over to Epcot today. The whole reason for my last visit after all was for the Flower & Garden Festival. There is nothing to crazy going on for this shot. I used the Nikon 70-200 2.8 VRII and stood [...]

Thunderset

I was wandering around shooting the sunset from various spots when this spot next to the Haunted Mansion caught my eye. The color was really popping behind Thunder Mountain. This was a spot I knew of but had never stopped to take a shot. I tried a few different versions of this shot, one being a [...]

Cinderella’s Bokeh Fantasy

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

This has really become one of my favorite things to shoot over the past few years. I continue to experiment with different angles and its lead to some results I'm really happy with. I have turned to my Nikon 70-200 more often than not for this shot and this was no exception. I shot at F3.2 [...]

National Park Mickey’s Spaceship Earth

By | June 2nd, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

This was a shot I was looking forward to trying all day. I figured this would work really well with Nikon 70-200 shot from afar to create some compression. In particular, I like just how large and grand it makes Spaceship Earth look by zooming. National Park Mickey really helps to add a bit of foreground [...]

Beauty and the Beast and Paris

By | May 24th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

In honor of the new Beauty and the Beast movie trailer (which looks awesome by the way) I figured I'd post up one of my Beauty and the Beast related shots from the Flower & Garden Festival. For this particular shot I actually had the tripod fully extended on the edge of the fountain. I shot [...]

Cinderella Fountain Statue

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

I originally had a different shot in mind for this location but thanks to the eternal construction walls of the Magic Kingdom I had to seek out a different shot than what I originally had in mind. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise as I ended up really loving the shot I wound [...]

The Pitch to Cinderella Castle

By | May 13th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

The day before my last trip I was browsing through Instagram and I saw a really cool pic of an angle I had not seen before shot on Main Street USA. I didn't think too much of it at the time but a few nights later when I was walking down Main Street USA looking for [...]
