Today’s photo comes to us from, of all places, a parking lot. After walking from a nice evening of Food and Wine Festival at Epcot, we noticed a beautiful sunset. Now, the entire 2 hours we were inside the park, the clouds took over the sky and there was no color whatsoever. I believe it […]
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.
On my most recent Walt Disney World trip, I spent a day at Hollywood Studios with Cory photographing the park. We didn’t realize it at the time, but it happened to be the same day that the Dapper Day event was being held. If you are not familiar with Dapper Day, it is a fan organized event that is held twice a year at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. The people attending the event show up dressed in their most stylish outfits and enjoy the park together. As someone who is interested in photographing the parks and enjoy human element type photography, it makes for some great photo opportunities. It seemed to be a great fit for Hollywood Studios since their outfits went perfect with the 1930′s theme of Hollywood and Sunset Boulevard.
So, you’ve been going to Walt Disney World or Disneyland for quite some time now, and you’ve taken all of the postcard type shots over and over again. Sure, you’ll still take them every time you visit, but eventually, you get to a point where you want to find more things to shoot, find something […]
We are introducing a new feature to the site leading up to Photo Magic 2013 that we think everyone will enjoy. The idea is to take one photo subject at Disney and have each of us explain our approach to shooting it. We are starting with photos that will most likely be done during Photo Magic, but we plan on continuing this after the event and covering more shots from around the resort.
To get things started, we are starting with one of the more popular questions we get on the blog…Wishes! People always want to know how we photograph the fireworks, recommendations for locations and the correct settings to use. Today we will each take a few minutes to explain our own approach to photographing the nightly fireworks at the Magic Kingdom.
We are just 18 days away from Photo Magic 2013 at Walt Disney World, so we figured it was about time that we put some type of schedule together for everyone! The idea behind the event was to create a schedule that would allow for people to come and go as they wish as opposed to a strict schedule that would require people to spend all day with us. With that in mind, the schedule below has a lot of extra time built into it to allow for us to take our time as a group roaming the parks.
