Cloning Around

Posted on
A couple of months ago I started using Apple’s Aperture 2 photo application. The photo editor in Aperture is much better than anything I’ve ever used. While not a true graphics editor like Photoshop, Aperture does have some tools which are helping me make great photographs from not-so-great ones. Like this photo of a performer … Continue reading "Cloning Around"

Recently, I visited Rafiki’s Planet Watch at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This area is a real treasure trove of Hidden Mickeys; you could easily spend several hours here searching for the little gems. On the order of 42 Hidden Mickeys live here, and a few more undiscovered ones may be waiting for us to find them. … Continue reading "Conservation Station at Disney’s Animal Kingdom"

Part I: How We Did Four Disney Parks in One Day

Posted on
I think it was just over a month ago that the idea of doing four parks in one day came up. It started out as an episode on the WDWTODAY podcast with me, Matt Hochberg, Len Testa, and Mike Newell tossing around ideas as to how we envisioned doing that kind of a challenge. Then … Continue reading "Part I: How We Did Four Disney Parks in One Day"

P for Program Assist

Posted on
The past couple of weeks I’ve showed you how to control depth of field with Aperture Priority mode and to slow or freeze motion in Shutter Priority mode. What if I was to tell you about a mode which automatically selects a good exposure (aperture (f-stop) and shutter speed) to start with and allows you … Continue reading "P for Program Assist"

1972 Magic Kingdom Walt Disney World Pictures – Part 2

Posted on
This is my last set of January, 1972 pictures. I do have others, but they are of things that have changed very little over the years, such as Main Street and portions of Fantasyland, and really aren’t of any historical interest. Enjoy! This first picture is of the Haunted Mansion. The first interesting detail is … Continue reading "1972 Magic Kingdom Walt Disney World Pictures – Part 2"

Fort Wilderness Hidden Mickeys

Posted on
Recently, I stayed in a cabin at the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. The best way to research Hidden Mickeys is to stay in the middle of the magic! I like the cabins; they’re spacious and well-maintained, and you can park your car right in front of your cabin. Disney has been placing more and … Continue reading "Fort Wilderness Hidden Mickeys"

A is for Aperture Control

Posted on
Aperture seems to work in reverse to common sense. Measured in f/stops, the smaller the f/stop, the larger the aperture or opening of the camera’s iris and the more light is allowed to hit the sensor. It also controls the Depth of Field or how much or how little the plane of focus is in … Continue reading "A is for Aperture Control"
