Beautiful Cinderella’s Castle at Sunset

Secret Photo Spots at Disney?

If you know any, be sure to share! I share this one below…

I have a lot of Disney shots here on the site. Just be sure to click the “Disney” category that is attached to this post to see them all! :)

Daily Photo – Beautiful Cinderella's Castle at Sunset

This is a great place to watch the sunset. Not that your kids will be interested in watching the sunset or anything, but maybe you will. Give them a bunch of money and ice cream and tell them you'll be back in an hour. That's what I do! :)

There's only a few places around the castle where you get a reflection shot. This is one of them. If you move around near the bridge in Tomorrow Land, you can go into the exits of the Lilo & Stitch ride to find this secret spot!

Ancient China

Better than actual China shots?

This is a good question! Is Disney’s China more picturesque than the actual China? Yes and no are my answers. There is certainly an undefinable “authenticity” to the actual China that I can’t pull out of al the imagineer’s wranglings at Disney. It’s kind of hard to explain, but maybe you know what I mean! :)

No it isn’t!

This was shot at Disneyworld at Epcot center. Want to know a great Disney shooting trick? They won’t like me telling you this… but I’ll tell you anyway. The Disney people are very nice to me, but that won’t stop me from being totally honest with tricky advice!

The advice is this. Stay at a resort (this gives you extra hours), and be sure to go to Epcot on their extra-hours night. While there, get the the point as far away from possible as the exit gate at close time. Then you can slowly take your time and work your way back. You’ll see no tourists or anyone! I saw this place almost totally alone… so cool!

Cirque du Soliel in Downtown Disney

Camera Police

I don’t understand why the Cirque du Soliel people are so militant about not letting you take photos. I really don’t get what the big deal is. I assume they are worried that someone will steal their ideas? I understand no flashes, but a good camera doesn’t need a flash to take a photo. Maybe they are trying to force people to enjoy it without using cameras? Or maybe if everyone does it, they will hold up cameras over their heads and block everyone? I don’t know… but it is quite annoying!

Here’s the awesome tent they built just for Cirque du Soliel. I’ve always liked this architecture design. It looks both temporary and permanent.

This was my son’s very first Cirque du Soliel and he loved it. Yes, he was a little freaked out by parts of it, but I think everyone is! :)

Updated Dutch Tutorial

I forgot to mention the Dutch tutorial has been updated… And I think that Japanese and Hebrew are on the way soon too! :)

Links International HDR Tutorial!

Daily Photo – Germanialand

This is the German area of Epcot at DisneyWorld. I know it’s always a bit disappointing when I say this, isn’t it? I wish it was all real too… but, it is close-enough to real, so that’s not so bad. It’s like getting a pretty good milkshake or an above-average massage. No one complains about these things. And I didn’t complain while here either… the architecture and feel was pretty cool… the food was good… no bitter-looking German tourists… a pretty good combo! :)

The View from the Contemporary Resort

Disney Fireworks

Which of the Disney firework shows are your favorite? They have one at all the parks except Animal Kingdom (I think). I’ve seen and photographed them all many times…

Daily Photo – The View from the Contemporary Resort

After I got off the cruise, we spent a few nights in Disneyworld. I had not stayed in the Contemporary since I was a little boy, so it was kind of fun to be back again.

We had a great room with this view out the window. I was only there in the room one night to capture this scene off the balcony, so I tried to make the most of it!
