That's a very good idea, I just have no idea how to do it.

I love this thread.
"http://micechat.com/forums/disneyland-resort/140579-disneyland-photo-day.html#post1056112730] Photographing Mickey Mouse.[/url]"
For some reason I can't get it to work in this forum. It should make the text of "photographing mickey mouse" be a highlighted link that will directly connect to the post.
to get the exact url of each post if you right click on the post number in the upper right corner of the post and copy the link then past it either into a new post or into word to create the large post.
I will work some more on figuring out why it won't work in this forum. (Mods if you see this and know the answer could you let me know?)
If I can get it working and have the time I will start creating a document for you with all of the links.
It looks like the editor in this software is too limited to do a real index with links. I can do links to a specific post like this:
but you can't edit the link name text - it will always show up as the name of the thread. So you can do a link to each of your photo tips posts, but the link text will all say the same thing "the disneyland photo of the day..." which isn't much good if you're trying to do a linked index.
To make the link to a specific post, click on the post number located on the right side of the blue bar at the top of that post. Then copy and past the url from your browser's address bar into any new or existing post.
Photographic treasure hunt - one of these times I want to shoot all the windows that have "ads" paying tribute to Disneyland's creators. Most are on Main Street, but there are others in Adventureland and Frontierland.
I hope Hot Sauce 1 doesn't mind me starting a index of the posts. I will be updating this as I have time to bring it up to date and then updating the same post every time he puts up a new picture of the day. Without further ado....

[QUOTE=timbre;1056358940]I hope Hot Sauce 1 doesn't mind me starting a index of the posts. I will be updating this as I have time to bring it up to date and then updating the same post every time he puts up a new picture of the day.
I don't mind at all. I'm flattered and honored, not to mention impressed that you could do it.
Today’s “Disneyland Photo Tip of the Day” pays a visit to the home of the Big Cheese, the Head Honcho, the Main Mouse…Mickey Mouse’s house in Toontown.
Oddly enough, there are a few challenges when taking pictures inside Mickey’s House. Fortunately, they are easy to overcome with just a few buttons on your camera. These apply to both DSLR’s and Point & Shoot cameras.
First and foremost to do when taking pictures of the settings inside Mickey’s House, set your White Balance to Tungsten. Using Auto White Balance works ok, but the lighting is mostly red and yellow and changes from room to room, so Tungsten makes the colors more natural and seems to work the best for all of them. REMEMBER to change it back to Auto when it comes time to take your picture with Mickey Mouse.
Second, if you plan on getting close up shots of the small details inside Mickey’s house, set your camera to Macro so you can get a shallower depth of field and softer edges to the pictures.
Here are just some of the wonderful decorations inside Mickey’s surprisingly large yet humble abode.
This Chicken is behind a chicken wire fence. I placed the camera against the fence and focused through it which made the wires disappear.
These two were taken with my current Point & Shoot with the White Balance on Auto. You can see there is just a slight yellowish hue to them.
Back to White Balance set to Tungsten...
Here is the same picture with the White Balance set to Auto so you can see the difference.
These were taken 6 years ago with a really old and SLOOOOWWWW Point & Shoot camera that was set to Auto and with the flash on. (One of those old point & shoots where you would press the shutter and wait 5 seconds for the camera to take the picture.) The flash does do a decent job at correcting the color but in my opinion, it kills a little too much of the special lighting and makes the images a bit flat.
Here is the sign you've been waiting for.
Of course all of this winding back and forth from room to room leads you to your photo op with the Big Guy himself. (the one on the left) Although, I’m sure my friend Billy would be glad to pose with you too.
The next time you visit Disneyland, make sure you take the time to pay a visit to Mickey’s House. Just remember to check your camera settings and bring a gift for your host. I suggest a nice piece of cheese or a bottle of Ring of Fire Hot Sauce. (kidding)

Excellent tips there, thank you HotSauce! Shall have to go into Mickey's house next month when I visit the park, haven't been in for a few years.
Great stuff, as always.
Great thread Hotsauce. I noticed something similar with the Laughing Stock show a couple of weeks ago, lighting heavy on the red in there. My photos came out similar to your examples, the auto balance didn't compensate enough for the red lights. Next time I will hopefully remember your tip and adjust the settings. Wonder if there are other areas in the land that have specific lighting issues to look out for.
I was just thinking today that I need to put together a little Cheat Sheet just for White Balance that would list all the locations where you need to set the camera to Tungsten or whatever setting is appropriate. I need to get into the park a few more times and test out the lighting in every location so I can make sure I have them all.
I haven't tried photographing the Laughing Stock show. I'll put that on my list for an upcoming post. (Thanks for the idea!) :)
