I know I will never travel to Nepal like Indiana Jones did. Luckily, I can photograph Walt Disney World’s version of Nepal at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Expedition: EVEREST. I am always searching for new angles and compositions like Indy searched for rare artifacts. Walking over the metal bridge with Everest behind me I spotted one … Continue reading "In Search of Nepal at Disney’s Animal Kingdom"

Still Using HDR at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Posted on
Even with today’s software tools like MacPhun’s Intensify, I still find taking a set of photographs to create High Dynamic Range or HDR images worth my time in the field and in the digital dark room. With my cameras from Nikon, it is easy to create a bracketed set of image from -2 to +2 … Continue reading "Still Using HDR at Disney’s Animal Kingdom"

Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Posted on
I enjoyed Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It is not a show with a lot of “Wow” factor like a fireworks show. The music, floats and use of projections on water is very soothing. I will say my experience in watching it was not enjoyable. I saw Rivers of Light in its third … Continue reading "Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom"

Ruling the Animal Kingdom in Thirds

Posted on
The Rule of Thirds is a compositional rule in photography and other visual arts. The rule states that an image can be divided into nine equal parts by two equally-spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines. The four points which I refer to as power points formed by the intersections of these lines can … Continue reading "Ruling the Animal Kingdom in Thirds"

Disney Pic of the Week: Portraits

Posted on
The definition of a portrait is a painting, drawing, photograph, or engraving of a person, especially one depicting only the face or head and shoulders. In our case, photography is our medium of choice. While the dictionary uses “person”, I would substitute “subject” as portraits do not necessarily have to be human. Take for instance … Continue reading "Disney Pic of the Week: Portraits"

Disney Pic of the Week: Action

Posted on
Action photography is something I do all the time in my role as team photographer for an American Hockey League team. You can either capture action with a fast shutter speed to freeze the action. This lets people see and study the action in ways they can not do by watching the action. Or, you … Continue reading "Disney Pic of the Week: Action"
