Updated Schedule for December WDW Photography Trip
We hope many of you will be able to join us the week of December 5th – December 9th at Walt Disney World. We know it was a last minute event and promise that in 2011 we will have something planned well in advance with much more scheduled.
We have setup individual meets for each day and have created a page on Plancast for people to “signup” for each days events. If you will be at WDW during this time we would love for you to join us – there should be a large group of photographers each day roaming the parks and I am sure we will all learn from each other. Doesn’t matter if you shoot with a pro level dslr or a simple Point and Shoot, everybody is welcome!
More details may be coming soon.
Sunday December 5th — Studios EMH/Osborne Lights Shooting!!
Meet us at 6:30 over at Dinosaur Gertie on Echo Lake for the start of our week long festivities! From there, we’ll do some shooting of the park, especially the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. We’ll also take advantage of low (hopefully!!) crowds to ride some of our favorite attractions!!
Monday December 6th — Candlelight Processional/Illuminations Meet!!
Join us for some exciting holiday action at EPCOT Center! We’ll meet at 4PM at the tables outside the Liberty Inn at the American Adventure pavilion, then head over to the famous Candlelight Processional! After that, we’ll do some wandering and shooting, which will be very casual. Then we will officially meet again at 9PM on the bridge that connects the UK and France pavilions to shoot Illuminations: Reflections of Earth with the special Peace on Earth tag attached!! Bring your tripods and ND filters!!!
Tuesday December 7th — Animal Kingdom 2 Week Photo Safari!
Join us for a two week photo adventure on the African savannah! Ok, it will be just a few hours of shooting Disney’s Animal Kingdom, but promises to be just as fun! We’ll meet at the large Christmas tree outside the main gate to DAK. From there, we will wander the park shooting the amazing details, riding the attractions, and probably get a little Flame Tree Barbecue as well :)
Wednesday December 8th — Hollywood, here we come!!
Join us for a day filled with fun and photography at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! The event will start at Dinosaur Gertie’s over on Echo Lake. We decided to have the event start at 10AM so that everyone could go get a Fastpass for Toy Story Midway Mania right when they arrive before meeting up. From there, we will walk and shoot the Hollywood that never was, but always will be. We’ll also enjoy all our favorite attractions!
Thursday December 9th — EPCOT/MK Prime Lens Day!!
This is going to be one of the more special days photography wise on this trip. We all aspire to become better photographers, so on this day, we’re going to meet and keep one fixed focal length prime lens on our cameras all day! This will cause us to really think about composition and push us to get better!! We’ll meet at the Camera Center underneath Spaceship Earth at 9:30, giving everyone time to get a Fastpass for Soarin’ before the meet starts. We’ll go from there, hitting both Future World and World Showcase until noon.
At that time, we will take a group ride on the famous Walt Disney World Monorail over to the Magic Kingdom, with prime lenses still attached! We’ll then shoot the place where it all began from 1PM until 3PM, at which point we will close out our first ever Disney Photography Blog event, hopefully with tons of great memories!!
