Just a quick photo post for today, and it comes from the Magic Kingdom! With it being springtime in the parks, we only have a few weeks before it starts to get quite hot here. During these few weeks of spring, we get some really nice flowers in the Hub, which get switched out for […]

One of the things that I am constantly trying to improve upon in my photography is the concept of being able to tell a story without having to write a long and bloated caption or paragraph that accompanies it. If you follow me on Flickr, you’ll see that I’ve cut back significantly on my captions, […]
Howdy all! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, and that you’re all excited for 2014. I know that the site has been dormant for a while, and today, I’d like to discuss a few things, both on a personal level, an artistic level, as well as share some of my thoughts and […]
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.
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.
