Hello everyone! For today’s post, we are headed to the New Fantasyland, Storybook Circus to be more precise!
I think the new Dumbo in Storybook Circus is significantly more photogenic than the version that existed over by the Carousel. There are just so many more visual elements to make photographs with, and there are two spinners! To create this shot, I needed to go for a long exposure, so a tripod was a must. I also knew that I wanted to have the correct amount of light across the frame, so I took this as a 5 exposure bracket of [-2, -1, 0, +1, +2] and blended them using Exposure Fusion in Photomatix, which is my favorite way of creating nighttime images. All things considered, this is the first shot of the new Dumbo that I’ve been pleased with!
This shot was taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the Olympus 14-42mm kit lens. Have you seen or photographed the new Dumbo yet? If not, are you looking forward to it? Let us know in the comments! Thanks for reading!
