How to Photograph at a Busy Disney Park

I came upon an article called How to Photograph Busy Tourist Sites by Kav Dadfar on the Digital Photography School website a few weeks ago. All the tips sounded a lot like the ones Lisa and I have talked...

Cropping People from Walt Disney World Photos

Last week I discussed using guests, tourists if you will, as part of photos in a crowded Disney park. I know, many do not like to see other people in their vacation photos. You can take some of those...

Characters of the Disney Dream

Disney characters are a joy to see at the Disney resorts. Seeing them on the Disney Dream cruise ship last January was even more joyous. The ship, while big, is still small compared to a park. Many meet and...
