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 [...]

Tomorrowland 35

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 [...]

Reflections of Space Mountain

While everyone was complaining about the rain during the afternoon, I was very excited at the possibility of nighttime puddle photography. Unfortunately, many of the nicer puddles dried up but there were still some for me to dive in to once the park closed. On past trips, I have just put my camera directly on the [...]

Robodog Spelunking on Space Mountain

Here's a shot I don't see very often. Once again this was taken with the conveyor belt not running so I was able to take my time to get this shot when exiting Space Mountain. I think what I love most about it is it’s a wonderful little science fiction scene that isn't based on some [...]

The Way of the Future

I've always really liked the futuristic scenes as you exit Space Mountain but for whatever reason I never really had any good pics of them. I posted a single shot of this scene a very long time ago but it was not great. Fast forward to this trip and when I came off Space Mountain I [...]

Lunching Pad to the Moon

By | 2016-10-27T08:58:03+00:00 February 26th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

When I saw the moon high over the Lunching Pad I knew I had to work that into a shot somehow. I ended up having to tilt the camera pretty far back even in vertical and I wound up with a bit of weird distortion but I don’t really mind considering the payoff here. I mean [...]

The Colors of Tomorrowland

This shot of Tomorrowland is pretty straight forward but also the result of me trying to mix up shots I've done in the past in a new way. I've shot from this location with the Nikon 14-24 2.8 ultra-wide before so I thought I'd give it a try with the Nikon 70-200 2.8. The shots are [...]

Tomorrowland at a Distance

I've shot the Tomorrowland entrance a couple different ways over the years but I think my favorite is shooting it far away with a telephoto lens. Using the telephoto from far away as opposed to close up with the ultra-wide makes everything appear very accurate with very little if any geometric distortion. Additionally I love how [...]

Tomorrowland Light Streams

Tomorrowland continues to be one of my favorite locations in Walt Disney World to photograph. There's just so much going on and all the different colors lend to photos that pop. I love the cool steel look that goes along with that as well. Having said that I certainly feel there are elements of Tomorrowland that [...]

Trip to the Lunching Pad

I've been shooting Walt Disney World for a couple years now to the point I feel I've covered a lot of the common angles for the various go to shots. One thing I tried to do this trip was mix in some off angle shots to try and switch things up a bit. In this case [...]
