Disney Pic of the Week: Tomorrowland

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

This photo of Stitch’s Great Escape! all lit up in neon is an example of waiting for the right light. Us, photographers, should always keep tabs on when the sun will rise and set. I have a handy iPhone app which I use and there’s lots of websites you can reference for this information. For this photo, my Disney Pic of the Week on Tomorrowland, I was watching both my watch and the sky waiting for the time the sky and the neon light would balance.

  1. This picture is really beautiful. It’s like one of those perfect moments you can only see in Disney. This attraction, however, is one of Disney’s rare mistakes. Boy do I miss the Alien Encounter…

    Scott replies: Thank you, Brittany! It’s not often I plan for something like this but on this trip I wanted to show how to balance aritifical and ambient light sources which I had written about a couple of weeks before I took this.

    Sigh…Stitch is one of my favorite Disney characters but for some reason the Imagineers have trouble with him when it comes to attractions. He’s great as a park or dining character. Well, maybe they’ll do a space speeder ride someday. I want to the red one if they do!

  2. What app do you use on your iphone? thanks

    Scott replies: Chris, the app is called Sunrise and it’s by Adair Systems. It costs 99 cents but well worth it. It can display sunrise and sunset infomration for your iPhone’s current location or any location you’d like. Say, Orlando, Florida. 🙂
