An Empty Park?
For today’s post, I wanted to share a tip you can use to get a beautiful daytime shot of Cinderella Castle without having any people in the frame.
The above photo was taken at around 5pm this past Sunday. Now, we all know that Disney didn’t shut down the park so that I could take a photo with no one in it. But, what Disney does do is have a show on the castle stage multiple times a day. When that show is getting ready to happen, and shortly after it is finished, there is a rope that goes up, no longer allowing guests to walk up and directly through Cinderella Castle. That is your prime time to get a great shot of the castle with a nice leading line from the pavement, and of course, no guests in the frame. To shoot it from the Frontierland side, it would be best to time it with one of the later castle shows in the day. Morning would be best for the Tomorrowland side, that way you get the most warm and natural light hitting the respective sides of the castle.
This shot was taken with the Sony A7 and the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens, attached to the camera via Metabones adapter. All of these products, as well as any of your photographic needs (and more!) can be found by clicking through to Amazon. Thanks for reading!
