    The color of the castle works nicely, too.

    Thumbs up Re: The Disneyland Photo of the Day...

    2-7-12
    Today's "Disneyland Photo Tip of the Day" is a quick one on Paying Attention to Timing and Backgrounds.

    Whenever you are taking pictures of anyone or anything, always pay some attention to what is in the background and it's placement in the photograph. Sometimes slightly moving yourself or your subject to one side or waiting a second longer (if they are moving) is all that is needed to eliminate a light post or flag pole coming out of somebody's head.

    To illustrate the point, take a look at these shots I took of Tinkerbell from the Soundsational Parade.
    I had just walked out of the Castle and was heading towards the Partners Statue when the parade was heading from Main St. past the Castle. I was some distance away so I quickly put my zoom lens on and stood behind the crowd of people watching the parade. I had to shoot above the crowd so I would only be able to get the performers on the tops of the floats. I noticed that the top of the Astro Orbiter was sticking up in the sky as Tinkerbell was heading towards it. That was my shot! I waited and watched for her to line up near the spires on top of the Orbiter to take some photos. My goal was for it to look like she was flying around the Astro Orbiter if she lined up just right.

    Here is the first of the 3 photos I took. She posed perfectly!

    Next one, not bad but it isn't as cool as the first.

    In the last one, she has a nice wave and the sun is shining on her face but it is a second too late and now she has a big metal pole coming out of the top of her head, definitely not what I wanted for the photo.

    So whenever you are taking a picture with people in it, take a quick glance at what is behind them and how it will appear in the final image.

    Happy Snapping

    Here's another bit o' pretty for today. I don't have anymore tutorials until next week. I'll be there Tuesday & Wednesday shooting for them. One in particular will be a 4 or 5 part lesson.

    It's Fireworks Friday so here's what happens when two worlds (or lands as the case may be) compete for your attention.

    Your post-processing style has become a lot more restrained and refined, Mike! Lookin' good and always inspired by your continual learning.

    Thank you. You said it exactly the way I wish I was elequent enough to say myself.
    When I go to D-Land on Wednesday, I'll be shooting a new tutorial on HDR from set up to final image, using some new techniques that should take it to the next level. It will probably be a 5 part tutorial.

    How are you liking the 7D? Have you used the video much yet?

    It's still a little early for me to say how I feel about the 7D yet. There are things about it I really like and some that I don't. There might be a flaw with the camera that I want to have checked out by Canon. It may be nothing, it might be something. I'm really not sure.

    I do love the shutter speed and some of the features but it doesn't handle high ISO's as well as I thought it would and one little thing that bugs me is no timer when I have it on bulb mode. My T1i has a timer but not the 7D??? WTF?

    I don't know much about cameras, but I've heard great things about magic lantern. Magic Lantern Firmware Wiki. Might want to try it on your T1i and check out the features. I just recently bought a T2i and once I get more into photography as a hobby I hope to be able to use all the functions that magic lantern has to offer. I pretty much read this whole thread and really like your stuff. Thanks for all the tips and tricks!

    Ok! I'm back from Disneyland and two days of taking tons and tons of pictures for new tutorials. I should have a new one up in a few days. I have a lot of photos to go through and edit first. In the mean time, here's a little bit O' shiny for today.

    Here's a rarely seen, yet very pretty scene from Disneyland. I grabbed this the other day when the rain stopped for a brief moment and the skies started to clear.

    This is one of those being in the right place at the right time. However, your skill really brought this even to life. It's a great picture.
