40mm | ISO 2000 | f/4.0 | ss 1/100
Taking pictures at Disneyland can be a bit tricky. One minute you are in bright light and the next it is dark and shadowy. One minute you want a sweeping wide angle view and the next you want the up close detail. Top it all off with long days and you've got to limit your choices!
I chose to carry my camera on me as usual with one lens tucked away in my bag, just in case. I shot almost everything with my 17-40mm f/4.0 L lens. I compromised a wide aperture for the great quality glass.
Our shot with Mickey was in a tight dark space that my 50mm 1.4 just wasn't going to be wide enough. I didn't carry a flash since you can't use it in most places anyway and I didn't want the weight. I bumped my ISO up high enough to get a shutter speed that would stop movement and shot away. I was counting on Ian being pretty still for the photos and the Mouse to be picture taking savvy. He was! It all worked!
What's your biggest frustration with amusement park photos? I'd love to hear it! I'll be posting Disneyland photos all week!
This is also my M photo for a fun photo challenge at GetItScrapped this month! We'll be working our way through the alphabet all month! Obviously not in order!
