    Disneyland: Color and Light

    Color and light.
    There's only color and light.
    Yellow and white.
    Just blue and yellow and white.
    Look at the air, Miss!
    See what I mean?


    -From “Sunday In The Park With George” by Stephen Sondheim


    As I continue to learn as an amateur photographer, I am constantly discovering things on almost a daily basis. One of my favorite places to practice is, of course, Disneyland. As I've taken shots at all hours of the day during the past year or so, the importance of light is beginning to have a profound effect on how I try to set up my shots. There have been some late afternoons recently, after a rainstorm, when the light seems almost magical. Or moments just before the sun drops below the trees where everything seems to turn gold. In the mean time, I’m finding myself drawn more and more to landscapes, sillouettes, water, and sunsets. It's frustrating not quite having the "chops" that a veteran photographer would have if one of those incredible moments happen and the sky lights up for that instant. But hey...it's always fun to experiment.

    Here then, are some of my recent "experiments", some dating back to December, that cover a wide range of color....and light.

    This first set was taken several weeks ago following a week of rain. The sky ranged from deep blue to brilliant orange to indigo, and there was something about the clouds that day that seemed almost surreal at times:

    Re: Disneyland: Color and Light

    Nice shots! Are you shooting RAW? If not, you should. That'll allow you to maximize the dynamic range of shots looking into the sun--though there are many other benefits. If you bring a RAW shot into Photoshop's RAW editor, you can turn the contrast all the way down (and, sometimes, the shadow point, too) and show a lot more in the highs and lows than you're achieving with these shots. Unless you're going for a more contrasty look, of course.

    great shots - especially using the different available light and colors in the sky
