    My Disneyland Pictures

    I used my tax refund to invest in a new camera. A Nikon D3000, with a 18-55 and 55-200 lens. Take a look, tell me what you think!

    Not too shabby They're great! The teacups is always a perfect photo op at night, isn't it?

    However, a few of the photos such as the castle and the Emporium are a bit blurry. I know that this effect was done on purpose, but with my crazy eyes it's kind of hard to focus.

    yeah, my camera actually has a "miniature effect" (like the tilt-shift videos of the magic kingdom and epcot) built into the software. so one day when i get the time and patience i will try and make my own video!

    Not sure how I feel about the effect for those. To me, it just seems like a poorly focused picture to me, but that's just me.

    The ones in the WDW time lapse video were done with actual tilt-shift lenses and not digital effects like the D300 does. The final output is quite different.

    In my experience, those work a lot better when they're taken from above the subject (a crowd, a landscape, etc). The ones you took were a good start, though . And I like the rest of your pics, especially the hearts and the kind of enigmatic Space Mountain spire.

    Very nice!! I've been looking at the same camera, so its nice to see someone who has one now and hear about their first hand experience! I'd love to see more pictures and hear what you think of the camera. Have you tried getting pictures in Pirates or other dark rides without the flash yet?

    I do like the camera! I will post more pictures tonight when i get home.

    As far as inside rides, they were a little noisy. i am still working on tracking and what not. It is my first SLR so i am still learning all the settings!

    Nice photos. We also got our income tax refund back already, and we have enough money for me to take a trip to Disneyland. Then I get to take a whole lot more pictures of the park.
