Using a Wide Angle Zoom at the Magic Kingdom

Posted on
A fun lens to use at Walt Disney World is an Ultra Wide Angle (UWA) Zoom Lens. For a Full frame camera, it means a lens starting at around 16mm. For a cropped sensor camera, 10mm or 11mm is a good starting focal length. Currently, I use a Nikon 16-35mm f/4G ED VR Lens on … Continue reading "Using a Wide Angle Zoom at the Magic Kingdom"

Disney PIc of the Week: Magic Kingdom Landscape

For the next few weeks, Deb and I will be sharing our landscape photography from Walt Disney World. The definition of Landscape Photography is showing spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. That’s pretty broad. Must people think of vast expanses showing mountains, deserts, oceans and other such places when … Continue reading "Disney PIc of the Week: Magic Kingdom Landscape"

The Universe of Energy’s roof is filled with such panels which partially power the huge vehicles filled with guests through the attraction teaching when, where, how and what energy is. Universe of … Continue reading "Disney Pic of the Week: Universe of Energy"

Disney Pic of the Week: Macro

Posted on
I do not own a Macro (or Micro in Nikon speak) lens and have never brought one to Walt Disney World. It would be interesting to explore Disney through such a lens. Imagine the detail you could find with one. Like last week, you can get a Macro like image by cropping which is what … Continue reading "Disney Pic of the Week: Macro"
