It’s been a few weeks, but by now everyone should be well rested and recovered from PhotoMagic 2013 – yes, even those who partook in SlackerMagic! We’re busy going over ideas for next year but wanted to get feedback from everyone as to what you liked, didn’t like and how we can improve future events. If you have a moment or two, please let us know your thoughts!
It’s already over? After all that planning and counting down, it is hard to believe that PhotoMagic 2013 is now in the books. We had an incredible week at Walt Disney World and from the feedback we received, it seemed that everyone who joined us had a great time too. Today we wanted to take a moment to share our own thoughts on the week and invite you to share your memories in the comments below.
It was a great week and we can’t wait to do it all over again next year. Before we can start planning for PhotoMagic 2014 though, lets look back on PhotoMagic 2013!
We are just days away from PhotoMagic 2013 starting in Walt Disney World and all the final planning is underway. Ryan is confirming his flight, Alan is double checking his hotel reservation, I’m charging all my camera batteries and Cory is….well…nothing because he lives at Disney!
We wanted to post one final update leading up to the event to make sure everyone is on the same page. We also have a new contest to announce and a few updates to the schedule.
So let’s jump right into it!
We are back with another Disney Photography Tips article, only this time we are doing things a little bit different. We had planned an article on just dark ride photography with each of us sharing our approach. We decided to go into a bit more detail though and have separate articles for the different dark ride attractions at Disney. To get things started today, we are focusing on the Haunted Mansion.
If you have any tips on shooting the Haunted Mansion, be sure to include them in the comments below. We enjoy sharing our approach but like to hear what your plan normally is also.
One of the great things about photography is that the more you shoot, the more you improve. Take a look at some of your photos from a year, month or even a week ago. I bet you’ll see areas you feel you could improve upon either technically or creatively. Not to mention all the new tricks you pick up as you hone your post-processing skills.
With that in mind, and PhotoMagic in just a few short days we thought we’d set up a little challenge.
We are back with another installment of Disney Photography Tips and this time we are each sharing our approach to photographing the Boo to You parade from Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. We will be photographing this parade as a large group during Photo Magic and have already received many requests for setting suggestions and the gear that should be used. What you will probably notice when reading this entry, is that none of us feel we are any good when it comes to shooting this parade! Granted we have all walked away with good shots in the past, but you see see that it can be a very difficult parade to photograph and you need to get the settings just right if you want that perfect shot!
Hopefully by starting the discussion here, others will start to share their settings in the comments and by the time Photo Magic comes around (in just two weeks!!!), we will all be ready with our cameras to capture those Grim Grinning Ghosts as they make their way down Main Street, U.S.A.
