    Photomatt Pics 01.27.08 - MiceChat 3rd Anniversary Mega-meet

    Howdy.

    I would like to start off by posting an UNOFFICIAL picture I took of the group in front of the castle.


    I would have continued taking pictures, trying to get a perfect shot, except that a certain well known MC'er insisted that I stop taking pictures. This person is obviously not in the picture since they were standing next to me telling me that I needed to stop immediately. Apparently it was decided that the "official" picture would be taken by a PhotoPass CM. I have no issues with this decision at all, but I am well aware of the quality of pictures that they take sometimes. I was only trying to guarantee that there would be at least a few good pictures, but in order to avoid conflict I stopped.

    I would like to present to you all of the pictures that the PhotoPass CM took with my camera. I don't think I was wrong to want to do this myself. Unfortunately I was not allowed to and here is the result.

    Again, the pictures that follow were all taken by a PhotoPass CM with my camera.



















































    I don't think that all of the pictures are bad, but how hard is it to get the whole castle in the picture? Also, the lighting at the time was very tricky and multiple exposures with different settings would have helped. Again, I think it is a great idea to have some pictures available through PhotoPass, but not allowing me to take more pictures was wrong.

    I have lots more pics to post but they will have to wait until this evening. I also plan on going through the few pics I was able to take of the whole group and editing them just a little to make them as perfect as possible. They will be available for download in their full 4MB size, for free of course, once they are ready.

    Looking forward to seeing more.....since the rain scared me away from the meet today.

    Like your unofficial pic better, but then you know your camera better then the CM who snapped the rest. Still all in all, most are not bad!

    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    I wasn't there, but in my experience when dealing with PhotoPass people is they are all about speed. I don't think the majority of them take into consideration the overall picture, rather than just taking the shot so they can be ready for another person.

    And he wasn't familiar with your camera... but excuses, excuses.

    Great pictures either way, how fun!

    I don't understand? You're not allowed to take pics of groups infront of the castle?

    Thanks.

    The rain did not start until around 1 or so. It was very nice before then. I am sorry the rain scared you away, but there is always next year.

    I do see your point about the CM not knowing my camera, but my camera is a Nikon which is the same brand they use. The camera was set to program mode so all the CM needed to do was compose the picture and press the shutter release.

    The MiceChatter I mentioned earlier insisted that I stop taking pictures. It was not a Disney policy that made me stop.

    That is exactly why I wanted to take as many pics as possible. I do care about the pictures I take.

    The first picture from the meet! Looking forward to the rest.

    I also did not go because of the rain. The decision was made last night and other plans made and then this morning I was kicking myself for not going. Following the Doppler radar I don't think Disneyland got as much rain today as we did here just 17 miles West of the resort. It appeared to come in cells missing Disneyland most of the time. I am so sorry I did not go!
