Any tips for taking great pictures in the parks?

There is a great article written by some MWers. I believe it can be found in resources - KissDclown  1089.2 #179 11:25PM
To some extent it depends on the kind of camera you are using but here are a few: 1. Pay attention to composition - learn the rule of thirds and don't be afraid to look at the work of other photographers for inspiration 2. Don't use a flash in dark rides - it is annoying and doesn't help make the picture better. It actually flattens out the whole scene. If you have an SLR, get the fastest lens you can afford. The smaller the number you can set the aperture to (like f2.8, f5.6, etc) the better in low light. 3. Take lots of photos! Film is cheap these days because you dont need it so shoot away and edit later. 4. Post process - evaluate your pictures and use an editor to crop, set contrast, adjust color and more. 5. Have fun. If it seems overwhelming, shoot from the hip. You will get some very interesting pictures that you would have never thought to take if you were trying to get the perfect pic. - ghosthost  338.0 #749 11:39PM
Couldn't find it. There are so many great pics on MW. Are most pics taken with phone cameras?? - speck  16.7 #8457 11:39PM
Great tips ghosthost. Thank you for taking the tip to share your knowledge. - MiggyMouse  296.9 #988 12:03AM
Ghosthost what kind of camera do you use? - speck  16.7 #8457 5:36AM
Ghosthost is right. I recently wrote in my coffee table book of DL photos that many of my, 'throw away photos' turned out to be better than the pics I tried to find the right look, angle, etc... Take lots of photos! :) - RadioMaverick  1276.9 #146 5:49AM
My wife has so many thumb drives and sd cards filled with our disney pics. Snap away, love lookin at the photos. - Mickey_Badge  282.8 #1093 6:37AM
@Ghosthost/Radiomav-what would you consider a decent camera for a starter, not terribly expensive but can still handle most all of the basic necessities? - stratdad  291.9 #1025 7:04AM
Sorry I didn't see the questions posted on this thread until now. @speck, I use either my iPhone or my SLR (Canon 5D MKII w/ 24-70 f2.8L & 70-200 f2.8L). @stratdad, I would suggest a DSLR if you want the best quality. I love Canon but others swear by Nikon. The entry level Canon DSLR includes a lens and costs just under $500. Not sure if that is in your budget or not but it would be a great starter camera. One tip, the pop-up flashes on DSLRs are usually awful. An external flash costs a couple hundred bucks but makes a huge difference. If you get one or have one, try bouncing the flash off a wall/ceiling or get a diffuser to soften the light. If you are actually considering a purchase I would suggest B&H photo. They are a very reputable online retailer with some of the best prices. Be careful with a lotoif the other cheap online retailers - they will often try and sell you packages that include a bunch of junk accessories or way over charge you for protective filters and such. You should get a protective filter, but it shouldn't cost you an arm and a leg to get one. Feel free to text me if you have any specific questions. - ghosthost  338.0 #749 11:11PM
I agree with CS. Going big on a camera doesn't mean you're going to get the worlds best photos. I would suggest going thru the MW records and find the post about great apps for the IPhone when it's comes to iPhone photos. A lot of the great photos you see on MW are shot on iPhones. If you have a droid look online to find the best apps for your phone. You can take loads of great photos on your phone! - Smart.tea  206.7 #1982 11:22PM
There is truth in what CaptainSparrow said; A good photographer can do some great things with just an iPhone. The iPhone is a great portable camera and I am sure the Driods are good too. I love taking pictures with my iPhone and playing with apps. It is great fun and I use it all the time. That said, the quality of the equipment makes a huge difference. The iPhone is a toy compared with my DSLR - There is no comparison. A quality camera allows the photographer to execute their vision with total control. The more you learn about your camera the easier it is to control and the more you can do with it. You don't have to go crazy but if you are serious about wanting to take great pictures and are able to afford it, get a good camera an learn how to use it. - ghosthost  338.0 #749 12:26AM
I've been looking into the Sony NEX -5 anyone think its a bad camera? From what I've seen looks amazing! - NeverlandTink  423.1 #551 12:34AM
@jennyfur, looks like a cool camera. I have owned Sony equipment in the past (more video than still) and it us very good. I would recommend dpreview.com for thorough reviews. If the amount if information is overwhelming just read the conclusion. Here is a direct link to the NEX-5 review http://goo.gl/0XoPH - ghosthost  338.0 #749 12:54AM
Thanks for your input everyone!! - speck  16.7 #8457 7:34AM
Listen to Captain Sparrow, click on his profile and check out his pics!!!! ALL taken with his cell phone. He's AMAZING!!!! - peacelovemickey  350.6 #708 8:13AM
I agree @PLM. His perpective is magical. I'm thinking CS needs to make a coffee table book of these beautiful pics and present it to Disney to see if they would publish it. All the pics really capture the Disney beauty and magic.. js :) - Tinkerbabe  49.2 #4994 8:37AM
I bumped Admin's post with all the photo tips. - Hesatalkintome  31.3 #6106 8:55AM
Ghost host and Captain Sparrow gave great advise. Learn how to use your equipment just dont take it out of the box and push a button. Next, learn to really look at the details in your enviroment not just walking by and shoot. I take many photos but only a few out each batch come out really good. The best part is practicing, take alot of pictures and see what works. - Plumiegirl  10357.6 #9 9:05AM
Great info here in this thread.. - Tinkerbabe  49.2 #4994 12:03PM
Great tips! We are nikon users (and iPhone users) for pics. From a point and shoot to a DSLR. Before we buy a new camera body, lens, etc we of course research but we sometimes will rent it. It helps for us to see if it what we want. Can get pricey but saves us lots of money in the long run. - lockshockbarrel  245.4 #1472 12:13PM
There are signs that are recommended photo sites. All of them that we have taken pictures at turned put very nice. - ThumperSkellington  46.7 #5104 10:45PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the month of June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM

14 more days and I shall be entering in wait times for the first time( I was slow and shy to post). Well actually it will be 15 days. The first  day we check in and go to Trader Sam's. πŸ˜‰ - varela2892  66.3 #4387 7:14AM
I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - secretagentangel  7418.0 #14 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  2873.3 #52 10:28PM
I figure it is the least my wife and i can do, plus it is great exercise! I keep saying, one of these days we will go to one of the meet-ups. We generally only go on Saturday and sometimes Sunday as well. That darn thing called 'work' just gets in the way!  - oiler2112  771.7 #262 7:07AM
