WDW in December with AllEars®

I was honored to enjoy WDW early this December with friends from the AllEars® Team. Along the way, I met Max, a bright young Hidden Mickey spotter, in the lobby of the Beach Club Resort. Max had been educating his parents about Hidden Mickeys, and he pointed out a few Hidden Mickeys to me on … Continue reading "WDW in December with AllEars®"

Animal Portraits

Posted on
In the past I have shown you a portrait of a Wood Stork but I never went into details as to how to make a good animal portrait. The principles are the same as a good human portrait. Good lighting, good background, sharp focus, fill the frame (or crop after) and good exposure. In most … Continue reading "Animal Portraits"

Discovery Island Shops at Animal Kingdom

Posted on
Discovery Island at the Animal Kingdom acts like The Hub at the Magic Kingdom. It ties all of the outlying lands together in a harmonious manor. But rather than depict a real geographic location, Discovery Island uses humorous, almost cartoon-like representations of animals to create a whimsical locale that does not conflict with the other … Continue reading "Discovery Island Shops at Animal Kingdom"

Same Place, Different Time

We’re all aware that the Earth rotates around the Sun causing variations in lighting throughout the course of a calendar day. The magic time that creates golden glows happens twice but not in the same place. When the sun first appears in the morning and then again roughly an hour – an hour and a … Continue reading "Same Place, Different Time"

In the Jungle

Posted on
Little by little I’m learning to enjoy Animal Kingdom more and more especially all of the details and art that goes into something as enormous as the Tree of Life. This was a tricky shot because shooting up into the sky gives you a completely different reading than metering off the under part of the … Continue reading "In the Jungle"

Disney Pic of the Week: The Tree of Life

Posted on
There are over 320 animals carved into the Tree of Life in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Not all of them can be found on the massive trunk and limbs of the tree itself. Many can be found along the trails which serpentine around the tree’s roots like this beautiful giraffe carving and makes a suitable start … Continue reading "Disney Pic of the Week: The Tree of Life"

Landscapes Gone Vertical

Posted on
The Landscape Mode icon on your camera looks like a mountain. When you use this mode, you are telling your camera that you’re photographing a large area of scenery and want everything in focus. Internally, the camera sets the f-stop to allow less light to come through the lens but bringing the entire scope into … Continue reading "Landscapes Gone Vertical"
