Visualizing at the Ticket & Transportation Center

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

Visualization is a skill photographers use to see photographs before they take them. I know of many photographers who visit Walt Disney World who plan shots months in advance. I have done that and I have seen a good photo by just walking about the parks. The photo below of the Magic Kingdom Ferryboat entrance sign was one where I saw a photo before I took it. The sign itself is perfect for framing if something or someone would be in the frame. This is were patience comes in. I waited for guests to walk through the sign but it was not until these two Ticket and Transportation (TTC) cast members approached each other did the photo come together.

Cast members pass each other under the Magic Kingdom Ferryboat sign at the Ticket and Transportation Center, Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida.

Have you ever planned or visualized a photo before your trips to a Disney resort?

    Scott replies: Nope, you are not the only one but one of the few Disney fan photographers how do it. I find it fun to do though it never works out the way I have it planned in my head. LOL

    Oh, taking people who have never been to WDW is almost as much fun as going….almost.
