Festival of Fantasy Parade Photos!
As some of you may know, the Magic Kingdom debuted a new daytime parade on March 9th. I got the opportunity to check it out yesterday, and of course, take some photos. While I’m not a huge parade person, new things are always nice to see, and this parade is definitely an improvement on what preceded it. So, here are some photos, all shot with the Sony a7 and the Carl Zeiss 55mm F1.8 lens.
So there you have it! I shot all of the photos between f/1.8 and f/5 depending on how tight the composition was, how far away the subjects were, and how thin I wanted the depth of field to be. Since the parade is at 3pm, it is completely possible to get really fast shutter speeds, and keep the ISO between 100 and 200 the entire time. At this time of the year, the shadows were not a huge problem, but that could change along with the seasons, so I would definitely suggest finding a spot to watch/photograph from where the sun is directly hitting the back of your neck. You may get a sunburn, but you’ll get some great shots!
