    I'm back, but only for a moment. I have about one more week of hellish schedule before I can get a chance for a new tutorial. Here's a few pretties to tide you over til I return.

    Re: The Disneyland Photo of the Day...

    Your pictures are just getting more and more fabulous!!!!!! They are truly breathtaking!

    I have an idea, if you haven't already done it. This November I'm going to Disneyland to see my first ever Christmas at Disneyland!!! And I was wondering if you'd do a tutorial on how to capture things like the snow fall, IASM Christmas, and even how to make the horse and carriage ride down Main Street look magical?????

    I know you've been massively busy, but do you normally go to the Parks at Christmastime and catch the special time of year?????

    Today’s “DisneylandPhoto Tip of the Day” goes shopping and gives some tips onphotographing the retail store displays.

    When taking pictures of the store displays in Disneyland, there are a few things to remember, both froma technical and creative standpoint that will make your photos a whole lotbetter.

    One of the most important things to pay attention to is yourWhite Balance. Virtually all indoor spaces in Disneylandand elsewhere are lit with incandescent lighting which will make your photoslook very yellow. Auto White Balance just doesn’t get it right in indoorsituations. Setting it on Tungsten will usually get it pretty close but thereare sometimes that Tungsten still won’t be enough. If you are shooting in RAW,you can adjust it as necessary.
    This was shot on Auto White Balance.

    Here it is on Tungsten

    For this one I went into the RAW editor and dropped thecolor temp all the way down to 2500.

    Even if you are in a location with a lot of sunlight comingthrough the windows, such as this scene, the artificial light will still givean off color cast to the subject. There was a good deal of sunlight shining onthis mug display, so much so that I thought Auto would be fine.

    When I looked at it in the camera, I could tell that itstill has a yellowish tint. Putting it on Tungsten made it look like it did tomy eyes.

    Virtually all of the displays that you will want to photographwill be in a dark room. Even with the spot lights on them, using a large apertureand an ISO of at least 800 is necessary.

    The shutter speeds will still be somewhat slow so using a displayas a camera stand can be a big help.

    Keep an eye out for the different seasonal decorations becausethose can be great to photograph.

    From a creative standpoint, it isn’t always necessary to photographthe entire display of something, such as this display of coffee mugs.

    Getting close up and just focusing on the actual subject canbe a more interesting photo.

    Re: The Disneyland Photo of the Day...

    Mike, why do you use the tungsten white balance setting instead of incandescent? If the lighting in the stores are incandescent lights, why not shoot in that setting? Is there an advantage to shooting in tungsten, or a specific temperature reason for it? (Trying to learn my way around the DSLR world!)

    What you do with framing that shot and waiting for the sky to look just right is proof that photography IS an art.

    On Canon cameras, it's called Tungsten. On Nikon it's called Incandescent. Both are basically the same thing, just different names from different manufacturers.
    Hope that helps.

    It is called a Sun Sniper. It screws into the bottom of the camera (where a tripod ball head attaches) and goes over one shoulder. It's great because the camera hangs at your side and just slides up when you want it. It also doesn't put strain on your neck like a normal camera strap does. It does take a little getting used to but it makes a huge difference on a long day in the park.

    It also has a steel wire in the middle of it so it can't be cut if someone tries to cut your strap and steal your camera.

    The only drawback of it that I don't like is that you have to take it off when using a tripod and I have dropped my camera because of that.

    Ah! I think I might of been confusing incandescent with fluorescent! I was thinking tungsten and incandescent and fluorescent were three different types of lighting/bulbs. I'm such a noob sometimes... (Had to dig out the manual on my Pentax to check what choices it had!)

    I had to go to the Nikon website to check it myself.
    However, Flourescent is a different color temperature than the Incandescent or Tungsten setting. It usually makes everything yellowish orange.

    About the only time you would need that setting is in a school classroom at night when you aren't using a flash.

    Re: The Disneyland Photo of the Day...

    I'm so sorry I haven't been around for a while. This week was supposed to slow down and give me time to do the 4 different tutorials I have planned out but it only got busier. It's been pretty tough to think about a tutorial when I am getting home close to 4 am and getting to bed when the sun is coming up. I know it sounds silly for a business owner to say, but I do wish it would slow down just for a little bit so I can get caught up on things.
    Here's a few pretties in the mean time.

    Re: The Disneyland Photo of the Day...

    How often do you shoot in something other than RAW? I know most of your tutorials specify using RAW because of the ability to make changes after the shot are taken but is there any reason you would shoot in RAW + JPEG or JPEG only?
