During Pixelmania 2014, one of our events was a “ride the queue” of the Kali River Rapids in the Asia section of Animal Kingdom.  The queue is magnificent and insanely detailed and is worth the experience, even if you choose to skip out on the ride itself.  Using both my Canon 1Dx and my Sony a6000, I took many, many photos during a trip through the queue that stretched out over nearly one hour.  We let many, many guests pass by in order to spend more time enjoying the sights and sounds of the Kali queue.

The queue has a quiet, nearly haunted, beauty and it really feels as if you are passing through a temple and shrine that time nearly forgot.  After passing through a garden with sculptures that seem to bid you “Namaste”, as pictured above,  you continue though a temple and past several other exhibits and tributes on your way to the loading dock.

This shot was taken using my Sony a6000 with the Sony 10-18 OSS wide-angle lens, as I wanted to capture the not only the stone idol in the foreground, but the other stone sculptures in the background along with some of the grass and foliage.  I then processed the shot through Adobe Lightroom 5 and Nik Perfect Effects 5  to get the completed image.

The Kali River Rapids attraction is a wonderful way to cool off in the hot summer sun as you WILL get drenched, however the queue can be enjoyed and experienced all year long.  I strongly suggest you check it out.

If anyone knows me, I am always looking for unique angle on shots at Walt Disney World.  One of my favorite things to do is to shoot upward at ceilings to capture the details, especially in round, intricately detailed domes.  The Temple of Heaven in Epcot’s China Pavilion is certainly no exception.

For this shot, I used my Sony a6000 mirrorless camera with the Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8 Pancake Lens and the Sony VCLECF1 Fisheye Conversion Lens to get an ultra-wide view of the ceiling.  The shot was SO wide that people’s heads were in the edges of the shot, which I cropped out as not to not be distracting.  I set the camera on the floor and used it’s on-board WiFi capabilities to trip the shutter via my iPhone so I was nowhere near the camera and also didn’t introduce any camera shake into the picture.  Lastly, I used the in-camera HDR function to take and merge three exposures because of the tonal range of the ceiling.  For post-processing I used my standard settings in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 to finish it off.

Soooooo… what do you think?  Please leave your comments in the space below and thanks for checking in once again!

Illuminations, the nightly fireworks spectacular at Epcot can be quite challenging to photograph.  Long periods of “inactivity” coupled with intense pyrotechnic moments combine for a difficult, yet rewarding, photographic experience.

This photo was taken during Pixelmaina, the annual signature event for this site.  My buddies were all setting up shop on the deck at Japan and I just happened to be able to get a spot dead-center, front-row between the two gift shops at the entrance to World Showcase lagoon and didn’t want to pass up the chance.

I used my new MeFoto tripod and a 3 stop ND filter on the lens to make this shot happen.

What better photo to celebrate Halloween than that of a shot of The Haunted Mansion.

The original version of this shot was taken with my Sony a6000 from the top deck of the Liberty Belle and I then edited it while on the plane flying to Disney World from Philadelphia in an app called Snapseed.  Snapseed was originally developed by Nik Software and it was then purchased by Google who incorporated it into Google Plus.  You can edit your photos right online if you are using the Google Chrome browser; there is no more standalone access to Snapseed on the PC or Mac.

This image of The Haunted Mansion is the perfect test subject for the “faded grunge” look.  I am very pleased with how it turned out and it only took a few minutes to tinker with and finalize.

What do YOU think?  Would YOU want to see more like this?

“Yehaa Bob” Jackson is one of the legendary performers on Disney property that everyone NEEDS to go see.  He performs at the Port Orleans Riverside River Roost Lounge most Wednesday through Saturday nights from 8:30pm to about 11:30pm.  He has an amazing blend of incredible piano talent, slapstick, vaudeville, and singing that will leaving you roaring in laughter and walking out with your sides aching.  Somehow Bob combines playing a rocking (literally) piano, singing, physical comedy, and facial gestures all at the same time.

Yehaa Bob sings everything from Bingo Was His Name-O to some classic Disney hits like the Mickey Mouse Club March to classic rock like We Will Rock You by Queen… and EVERYTHING in between.  Some of my personal favorites are “I Like Beer!” and “Sarah, Sarah, Sitting on the Shed House Door”.  He morphs almost seamlessly from song to song, pausing only to blast his horn, or wipe the sweat off his brow, yelling “Are you SURE I’m not messing up my hair?” to which the crowd replies (loudly), “IT LOOKS GREAT, BOB!”

Yehaa Bob has several in-jokes that he likes to play throughout the night on unsuspecting guests that always elicit a chuckle from the crowds that come to see him perform.  No matter where you are from when you go to see Bob, everyone else in the crowd is from there too.  Amazing!

The food at the River Roost is excellent, with my personal favorites being a plate of chicken wings with a Turbo Dog beer to wash them down.  In between sets, Bob takes a short break and poses for photos with his fans and if take a photo with him, he will take a photo with YOU and put it on his facebook page.

Bob has been playing and entertaining for years and we really hope he continues to keep on for many more years to come.  In case I am not being clear, DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW!

I took this selfie while messing around and killing some time in the area of Tower of Terror and Rock n’ Rollercoaster.  Not sure why I was killing time but this very show dawned on me as I was walking under the limousine arch heading back toward Sunset Blvd.  There is a VERY specific spot you must stand in to be able to get this shot.  I really like it because it is a very “off the beaten path” type of image and that keeps things fresh and interesting.  Nothing better than a selfie with a 50-500mm telephone lens… a lot more hard-core than using a selfie-stick!  Please drop some comments below if you like this photo.

TIMING IS EVERYTHING!! A villain car explodes after being shot by the hero in Lights, Motors, Action at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  I took this photo during Pixelmania 2014 and wanted to try to capture the split-second that the car explodes.  I pre-focused on the villain car and waited until the hero started shooting at the enemy and as soon as I saw the first flash of the explosion, fired the camera and caught it just right.  I really like all of the sparks from the explosion, making the photo much more dynamic than if it was just a puff a smoke. By zooming in very tightly and focusing on (no pun intended) just this one aspect of the action, it creates a very powerful image.   I often like to zoom in and isolate details or the “story within the story” and catching little vignettes such as this is a lot of fun.  Lights, Motors, Action has a lot of opportunities like this. I know how loud the explosion is inside of the stadium; how loud do you think it must be inside of the villain car?

The Sorcerer Mickey Hat (AKA The Big A** Hat) from Disney’s Hollywood Studios is one of those divisive elements in Walt Disney World that nearly everyone has an opinion about.  Personally, I very much like the hat, although for full disclosure I should say that I was a fan of the Mickey Wand that stood over Spaceship Earth in Epcot from 1999-2007.

This symbol, from Disney’s Fantasia, stands at the end of Hollywood Boulevard in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater which, of course, hosts The Great Movie Ride.  I am an fan of anything Mickey Mouse and it seems like there is not enough Mickey in the parks these days.
In this photo, please note the spotlights streaming in the background of the photo.  For reasons unknown, they were discontinued several years ago and I think that a big part of the nighttime visual excitement from Disney’s Hollywood Studios was lost with the spotlights.

I am very sad that Disney’s Hollywood Studios is removing The Hat from the front of the park and hope that it can be re-located somewhere else.  Did YOU like the Sorcerer Mickey Hat?  Please leave a comment in the space below and let your opinion be recorded.

In the stretching rooms in Disney’s Haunted Mansion, the Ghost Host taunts you with the following fact: “This chamber has no windows… and no doors!  Which offers you this chilling challenge… to find a way out!”  After some maniacal laughter he continues, “Of course… there’s always MY way!”

At this point, thunder claps and the lights go out, illuminating the ceiling which turns out to be a painted scrim where you can no see a hanged corpse dangling from the rafters.  The corpse of the former Master Gracey, master of the Haunted Mansion, is only illuminated very briefly and you really cannot see much detail because he is only lit for about 2 seconds.

For this shot, I activated a bunch of focus points on my camera and flipped the drive mode into high, blasting off a few frames which I had the chance and you see the result.  Sometimes it takes quite a bit of luck combined with skill to make an image happen and this is one of those times.  I have been trying for YEARS to get a shot this good and finally nailed one.

What do YOU think?

Master Gracey shows there is more than one way to escape from a stretching room. "There's Always MY Way!"

This photo of Legends of Hollywood in Disney’s Hollywood Studios was one of the first mirrorless photos that I had taken in Walt Disney World after getting my Sony NEX-6 (I also now have the a6000).  I love the small, lightweight feel of the camera when I get sick of lugging around my big, heave (and AWESOME) Canon 1Dx.  The mirrorless cameras make for a very nice change of pace and have some incredible in-camera effects that I LOVE to use, even though I swore I never would.

This photo of Legends of Hollywood features the Legends of Hollywood building, foreground with classic car, the billboard for the Hollywood Tower Hotel (look closely), and an awesome sky to make for one very dynamic wide-angle composition.  I remember waiting for quite a while for the crowds to part so I could shoot clean (no people) which was difficult because this photo covers a large area in the park.  The Sony 10-18 OSS is a great wide-angle lens and one that I would recommend you get if you have the financial ability to do so.

Black and white is something that I very much enjoying shooting because it seems more “artistic”.  I love it!  Do YOU want to see more black and whites from around Walt Disney World?  If you please let me know in the comments below and I will be happy to share more.
Enjoy your day, everyone, and be sure to check all the good doings over at WDW360!
