Twitter DPB Takeover!

Late last night, I was suffering from some writer’s block, and pretty much had nothing to write for a post for today. So, I reached out from our Twitter account @disphotoblog and got some, err, fun responses. Theresa (@GertieTheDino89) requested a photo of Gertie from DHS, so here we go.

Bryan (@YesThatBryan) requested a revealing tell-all about our team member Ryan, so here goes nothing.


Ryan enjoys long walks along the monorail line, smooth jazz in the evenings, and sitting in traffic on World Drive attempting to get into the Magic Kingdom. Follow him at @RyanPastorino on Twitter for some photography, but mostly angry fantasy sports talk.

While we are on the topic of Twitter, one of the things that came up in discussion there the other day was parade photography, and how it may be more difficult than it is led on to be. Clicking the shutter at just the right moment and capturing the right emotion can be rather difficult, even though getting a nice exposure and sharp shot in broad daylight might not be so tough. After seeing this discussion, I looked through some of my recent Festival of Fantasy stuff. I realized that I need to work quite a bit on capturing that moment at the right time. Lots of my parade work basically has gone to the trash bin because of a performer blinking, or something happening to obstruct that moment. Here’s one I didn’t hate though.

Even so, not a terribly huge fan of that one, and I think I need to do some more telephoto work on the parades instead of using my trusty Zeiss 55mm lens.

Anywho, that’s all I’ve got from the Twitter world. If you want to give us some suggestions for future articles, we always love the feedback. You can drop us a line here in the comments section, or follow us and mention us on Twitter @disphotoblog. Thanks for looking!

    Beautiful picture. I just got that same lens for my a7. I love it, and we will be taking it with us (along with a tamron 70-200 2.8) on a Disney trip with us in a week. Your photos are very inspiring. I hope I can do half as well!
