Today’s shot is once again a collaboration shot with my wife Erika. She had several shots from this showing of Wishes I wanted to edit and so now I’ve come back and edited a second one. You can follow her on Instagram @emcooperphoto. […]

Be Our Guest Wishes Part 2

It’s Friday once again so I decided to process another Be Our Guest Wishes shot for Fireworks Friday. This was my first time attempting Wishes from this location but it went really well. I like the added bonus of not having a thousand people hovering right around me so that I actually have some elbow room. [...]

A Thousand Wishes

What perfect timing for a Fireworks Friday shot of Wishes on the 1st day of the year. This is my 2nd posted sequence from this shooting of Wishes. The only thing I'm not thrilled with are the white side bursts that go off in this sequence. It would look a lot better without them as all [...]

Land of Fantasy & Wishes

I didn't have any real plans for shooting Wishes this night but I knew I wasn't gonna bother shooting from in front of Cinderella Castle. I was in Fantasyland about 30 minutes before the show and originally was hoping to try and shoot from the balcony of the Pinocchio Haus but it was roped off. That [...]

I have to admit I'm a sucker for the classic Wishes shot in front of Partners. I'm not a big fan of the 2.5 hour wait to pull it off however. When I arrived this area already had people sitting at almost every spot around Partners. I was just able to get a spot, though I [...]

Be Our Guest’s Wishes of a Magic Kingdom

Today's shot isn't necessarily anything that hasn't been done before but I felt the need to try something different for Wishes that wasn't from in front of Cinderella Castle but wasn't so crazy that it would be foolish to try. Seeing also as I had Be Our Guest dinner reservations roughly an hour and a half [...]

Just Make a Wish

I originally spent about 20 minutes on this shot and then thinking I had something decent showed it to my wife, who promptly told me it sucked and I wasn't trying hard enough. Sooooo, I spent another hour and a half working on this shot and now I think it's pretty sweet. I'd have to agree [...]

Happy Fireworks Friday everyone. Here's another shot from my very last minute setup for Wishes on our last night in Walt Disney World. I had finished shooting at Hollywood Studios and caught the bus with no real intention of actually making it to the Magic Kingdom in time to shoot wishes. As luck would have it [...]

The Magic Wonky Fireworks

I tried something different for once and shot fireworks in the middle of Main Street USA with a telephoto lens. I actually got quite a few keepers. Now obviously for this shot my tripod got bumped when the fireworks beside the castle were going off but to be honest I don't really think it affects the [...]
