Photographing in the World of Disney Store

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

The World of Disney store at Downtown Disney Marketplace is as exciting to photograph in as one of the parks. Especially, if you put a Nifty-Fifty (50mm f/1.8) lens on your dSLR camera. There are all kinds of subjects and compositions to discover while other members of your party do the heavy-duty work of buying Disney souvenirs and clothing. Which reminds me. Do not forget to include them in the fun.

Not into photographing people? You will find plenty of mannequins modeling the latest in Disney clothing and Vera Bradley purses for your photographing pleasure.

Do not forget when using a Nifty-Fifty, its ability to separate foreground or background elements when shooting it wide open at f/1.8. You might find Goofy all decked out for winter through a very familiar shape.

Like the parks, you do have to be patient when buying your Disney goodies at checkout. Luckily for you, you can spend the time capturing the experience.
