    ​That is a seriously amazing shot of the Serpent-Jafar.

    Re: The Disneyland Photo of the Day...

    I'm new to this forum. My son found it and told me about it. I have a question for Hot Sauce 1 or anyone else who knows the answer. I notice that Hot Sauce 1 seems to post a lot of shots without people in them. How willing is security to allow you to linger after closing to get those shots?

    I plan to go through this thread and pay close attention to Hot Sauce 1's tutorials and to any others who offer tips and tricks. There are some great photos in this thread and maybe I'll take some ones good enough to contribute.

    Since I'm new a little about me. I'm retired and live in northern California. I've been going to Disneyland once a year with my children and their families for about seven years. A couple of years I've gone twice. Since this is a family vacation I spend most of my time with my family taking family shots. I do try and sneak away once in awhile and shoot some scenery shots. I use a Canon 7D with a Canon 15-85 lens. The first few years I carried around a backpack with all my lenses and a tripod but found I never changed lenses and rarely had time to setup and use the tripod. The last couple of trips I've just carried the 7D with the 15-85 lens. For me this is the perfect lens for Disneyland. It allows you to get the group family shots in crowded conditions when you can't back up much. I also find I rarely wish I had additional range.

    How often do you get to the park. I'd love to meet up and shoot with you.
    We'll be there this coming Thursday.

    Security has become much friendlier lately to all of us photographers. In the past 4 months, there has been a HUGE change in their attitudes towards us and it has been really nice.

    If you plan to get empty park shots, the trick is to be near the back of the park, such as Tomorrowland or Critter Country or Toontown at park closing. Security starts at the back of the park and slowly works their way forward towards the exit, sweeping the park for people. If you are there when the last person gets out of your shot and work your way towards the entrance, taking shots as you go, they shouldn't be too bothered. As long as you move when they ask you to, you will be fine. Also, if you do bring a tripod, which you should, make sure you don't set it up in the middle of a walkway if there are still people around.

    Quite a few of my photos that don't have people in them were taken while there were lots of people walking around. I do long exposures so as long as they don't stop moving, they disappear.

    Let me know when you'll be down again and maybe we can meet up to shoot the park after closing.

    It's hard to say I just recently started working at Pepsi as a merchandiser and it's really not set in stone on which days I will have off, Once I get a handle on the days I will be off I will let you know.

    Good Point. Forgot about that little trick.

    Have always gone the week after Thanksgiving. I'll let you know.

    BTW - I read you're considering going to the dark side (Nikon).:-) I'm sure they make great cameras but I've always been a Canon man since getting my first FTb. Now I've got to much invested in lenses to switch. I'm hoping they come out with the rumored 7D Mkii.

    I planned on having it done about 9 months ago but work just got so busy that I haven't had a chance to touch it in months. (very frustrating)

    Here's a new photo that I just did. It is a 11 section panorama. Each section was a 3 exposure bracket processed in Photomatix, then layer masked in Photoshop. Then I stitched them all together in Photoshop and ran it through Nik Color Efx for some final detail. All in all it took me about 3 hours to do the entire thing.

    Most likely I'll get the Canon 5D Mark III. I tried the Nikon D600 and wasn't that happy with the functionality and layout of the ergonomics. I will say that the dynamic range and picture quality was AMAZING!

    Since none of my Canon lenses will work on a full frame Canon, I was toying with the switch. I'm basically starting from scratch when I go to a full frame camera, so I figured I'd try them both and see what I liked best.

    Yep, I'll be there all day. I'll probably get into the park around 11:30 am and will immediately try and get a wristband for Fantasy Faire. After that I'll be closing out DCA. I'm hoping and hoping it will be pouring rain that night. I want to shoot the street in Cars Land with wet pavement.

    For these photos and the other photos you take where the colors just POP!....for those photos do you enchance them? Or is this straight from the camera?

    I will be peeking in here more often as I have a real hard time in dark rides and the tutorials so far have been helpful, but I'm getting the hang of it.

    Thanks!

    Hi Clara,

    Those are definitely enhanced. They are HDR images. (3 exposures each) processed in Photomatix, then some Nik Color EFX applied to them.
    I also layer mask the -2 exposure image on top of the HDR image to layer in any lighting elements that are over exposed. The perfect example of that is the card stage in Mad T Party. The display screen with "Mad T" on it was from the -2 exposure image. That is the only way to get a nice clean shot of the screen.

    Re: The Disneyland Photo of the Day...

    So hotsauce, you took 3 different photos of the same thing and then overlayed them onto each other?.. Can photomatix be downloaded or is it something you need to buy? do you have to have lightrooom to have it?
