Spaceship Earth Nights

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

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 [...]

Spaceship Earth & the Case of the Missing Fountain Water

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 [...]

Spaceship Earth Lemons

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 [...]

Illuminations – Reflections of Italy

By | 2016-10-27T08:57:55+00:00 June 10th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

It has been a while since I've done a fireworks image so I figured the time was due. This shot was taken from the Italy Pavilion and is a series of bursts near the beginning of the show.  I used a 6-stop ND filter for the show and this particular exposure was 40 seconds. Just prior [...]

Spaceship Earth from Below

By | 2016-06-09T08:10:43+00:00 June 9th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

This shot I think definitely tracks into the more artsy type of photo than I usually do but I think Spaceship Earth is one of the best subjects in Disney for doing some really interesting compositions. I used my tripod at its lowest point and pointed the camera almost near vertical for this shot. I think [...]

National Park Mickey’s Spaceship Earth

By | 2016-06-02T08:42:16+00:00 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 [...]

No night of shooting at Epcot is complete without a few final shots at the entrance to Epcot in front of the planter and Spaceship Earth. This is especially true during the Flower & Garden Festival with all the great flowers and topiaries present. Of course I got the classic head on shot but I wanted [...]

National Park Mickey & the Blue Sky

By | 2016-05-17T21:40:43+00:00 May 18th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

This trip I really tried to shoot a lot of day time shots. It's something I've shied away from before but something I've been wanting to embrace and run with. The first half of my day at Epcot was a bust as the sky was grayish and cloudy but fortunately it broke and I did wind [...]

A Spaceship Earth Full of Food & Wine

By | 2016-10-27T08:57:59+00:00 March 31st, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

The past few years we’ve made certain to plan our yearly Disney trip around the Food & Wine Festival. It’s one of our favorite times to go to the parks and as we usually go towards the end of October / early November the weather is usually pretty nice along with lighter crowds. Plus there’s always [...]
