Cinderella Castle Study in Long Exposures

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

Here is a simple study on the effects of shutter speed when doing long exposures. As I waited for the projection and firework shows, I photographed Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom using longer and longer shutter speeds.

Each photo was taken with a Nikon D750 full-frame digital SLR camera using a Nikon 24-120mm lens locked down on a tripod. I used these camera and lens settings for each exposure: Focal length at 50mm, Aperture at f/16 and ISO at 100.

Shutter speed: 5 seconds.

Shutter speed: 13 seconds.

Shutter speed: 20 seconds.

Shutter speed: 30 seconds.

The only other variable was time. As you can see Blue Hour had not started with the first photo but it was very evident by the third one. Blue Hour had disappeared by the last one. What else can you see changing as the exposures got longer?

Disney Pic of the Week: Mickey Ears Souvenir

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

Who has not tried on a Mickey Ears Souvenir Hat? Anyone? I thought so. Disney makes thousands of different Mickey Ears Hats from the classic Mickey Mouse Club to Attractions and Rides. Not to mention movie tie-ins like this one for Belle in Disney's Beauty and the Beast movies and stage shows.

Challenge #501 Where in the world is this?

Let’s try something different. We’re switching parks and going into a restaurant. Even if you never ate here, the menus section can help! Just to avoid confusion, this restaurant is newer (2014) with some tables having a nice water view.

One of the joys of Walt Disney World is sharing the fun with family. Here you see my grandson being introduced to Eeyore by his mother (my daughter) at the Crystal Palace Character meal in the Magic Kingdom this week.

Last week's blog was in error. Because of Hurricane Irma, my travel plans changed and I had not gotten to Walt Disney World by then nor was I at Pandora. I rectified it last night and will report on my findings soon. UPDATE: I got stormed out last night and tonight is not looking much better. Will work on an alternate plan.

Disney Pic of the Week: Souvenirs for Adults

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

Okay, my favorite Adult Souvenir at any Disney property are T-Shirts. I own more than I should (just ask my family) but continue to buy them on every visit. It's a sickness, I know. Anyone else share it with me?

Adult Disney T-Shirts, Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida
Adult Disney T-Shirts.

From top left: CastawayCay T-Shirt, Jock Lindsey's Hanger Bar T-Shirt, Expedition EVEREST T-Shirt and a 2016 Music, Magic, Memories Walt Disney World T-Shirt.

Here's a couple of buying tip. If visiting a Disney park or property late in a year. The current year's t-shirts get heavily discounted. Disney Stores do have adult t-shirts. Usually found on a single table and are cheaper than in a park's store.

Deb will be here to share her favorite Disney Souvenir for Adults photo tomorrow.

The big jukebox at the 50s section of Pop Century! BUT! I forgot that All Star Music also has a large jukebox, so I’m taking that answer too.

Sheila Bagg, you did a great job of narrowing it down in your answer. I could picture it vividly in my mind. LOL

Tammy Warmouth, we did the same thing! Last day of the trip, we realize there was a quicker way to the room behind the jukebox!

No, Mickey Eckert, you weren’t last. 😊
