    Re: The Disneyland Photo of the Day...

    Here's one for today. I was taking a Tender Ride and decided to see what it would be like if I left the shutter open for 4 seconds while riding through one of the tunnels. I know it is really blurry but it does give somewhat of an impressionistic view of what the ride is like. At first I almost deleted it but the more I look at it, the more I like it.

    Dude, that tender ride was so much fun. Thanks again for getting it set up for us!

    So should I order more hot sauce and your incredible mouth-watering jerky, or am I just being selfish and making more work for you?

    Re: The Disneyland Photo of the Day...

    For the pretty today, I wanted to give a last look at the Haunted Mansion before it opens as Nightmare Mansion tomorrow. This shot is another example of taking a color photo that doesn't work very well and converting it to black and white. I took this on one of those really heavy marine layer nights when the sky is that god awful muddy orange color. No matter what I did, I couldn't get the sky to work, so by switching it to black and white, it becomes a non issue.

    Yay, another soft photo! I can't tell you how much I like this photo and the Pirates one before it.

    I love looking at your work.

    I'm sorry to have to ask, but what is a "tender" ride?

    I love that photo. Is that a person in the right corner?

    That's a very accurate description. I can dial the color temp down to around 2600 which makes it more natural in color but it still doesn't make it darker. Uggh!

    For the pretty for today, this is a composite I did of Big Thunder with a different sky. The reason I did this one is because a fellow micechatter, flickr friend and just plain friend Gregg Cooper suddenly lost his mother last week. Through Mice Chat and Flickr and our photo meets a lot of us have become good friends and a family of sorts. When one of us is hurting, we all hurt with them. I call this shot Ascension in part from the Vince Gill song "Go Rest High On That Mountain" so she can rest high knowing the love of her family and the warm light of heaven is shining upon her.

    A 'tender' ride is when you get to ride in the locomotive of the disneyland railroad.... it's pretty cool. I completly forgot bout it this last year when I was there. my son loves trains and would have gone crazy.

    Thank you!
    A Tender Ride is when you ride up front with the two engineers. You have to ask at the Main St. Tran Station if it is possible because not all the trains have that ability. It also depends upon if they have to take on water or not and if they feel like entertaining someone. I had to try at least a dozen times before I got to do it.

    It is also best to do it first thing in the morning because it is pretty hot up there. You also have to ride the train all the way around back to the Main St. Station. You cannot get off at a different station.

    Yes, that is the conductor in the right corner.

    I can never remember who is who up there.

    I've been playing around with some more Dark Ride HDR shots lately so here's the Pretty for today.


    I will be back tomorrow with a new tutorial (finally). This one is actually a good and somewhat intelligent one that should be mildly educational.

    ^I thought all your super-intelligent tutorials were good and intensely educational.

    Re: The Disneyland Photo of the Day...

    Today’s “Disneyland Photo Tip of the Day” takes a somewhat shallow look at Depth of Field.

    Depth of field can be described as the distance between the near and far objects in the scene that is acceptably in focus. A deep or large depth of field would be where the entire image is in focus. A shallow or small depth of field would be where the main subject is in focus and the background is blurred.

    There are three ways to control Depth of Field in an image, Aperture, Focal Distance and Focal Length. There are all kinds of scientific formulas and technical jargon relating to Depth of Field but for this application I’ll keep it pretty basic.

    For this tutorial all of the photos are right out of the camera with no post processing whatsoever. I took them late in the afternoon, so the light was a little challenging to work with. My subject “Plush Mickey” was in the shade whereas the façade of It’s a Small World was in the sun.

    Aperture size is the most common way of controlling depth of field. A large aperture gives a shallow depth of field and a small aperture creates a deep depth of field.

    I started with a 50mm prime lens to give me the widest range of aperture. This first photo is at F/22, with a shutter speed of 1/200. I had to use the flash to illuminate Mickey. Notice how all of IASW is in focus.


    Now at F/11, which is still considered a reasonably small aperture, it is still in nice focus but the small details are not as sharp. The shutter speed remained at 1/200.


    When we increase the aperture size to F/5.6 you can see how the background is becoming blurred. Surprisingly the shutter speed still remained at 1/200.


    I increased the aperture all the way to F/1.8. The shutter speed increased to 1/2500 and I had to turn off the flash. You can see how the background is barely recognizable.


    For reference, the first attempt at F/1.8 I had the flash on and this is what I ended up with.


    Focal Distance is the distance you are from the subject. The closer you get to your subject, the shallower the depth of field will become. For these I kept the 50mm lens on and kept the aperture at 5.6 and ISO at 100 for each shot.

    I started about 6 feet from Mickey.


    I moved up to 4 feet and it’s starting to blur.


    Now at 2 feet, it’s blurring more.


    And finally at 1 foot, it’s a very shallow DOF.


    Focal Length is the length of the zoom of the lens. For each of these photos, I used a 55-250mm zoom lens. I set the aperture at F/5.6 and ISO to 100. For point of interest, keep an eye on what happens with the shutter speed and the background on these photos. Remember, the aperture and the ISO doesn’t change.

    I stood about 6 feet away and started at 55mm. The shutter speed was 1/800.


    I zoomed to 100mm. The shutter speed decreased to 1/640.


    Now at 171mm, the shutter speed decreased to 1/250.


    I zoomed all the way to 250mm. The shutter decreased to 1/125 and the background is nothing but a white blur.


    Hopefully this little dip into Depth of Field can help you create images that look the way you want them to and make it easier for you to create them.

    Very, very kind of you to say.

    Remember everyone and/or anyone interested. The next Mice Chat Photo Meet is this Friday the 23rd. We are meeting for breakfast at 10:30 at White Water Snacks, then heading into Disneyland for a day of frolicking, fun and photography!

    There is a thread for it in the Forums section.
