Daily Photo Tour - Magic Hour


Ah yes, I remember now. . . It was magic hour (but isn't it always at Disneyland). The three of us had just entered the park, and the sun was hitting the station just right. We kept pressing on anyway. I really wanted to take the picture, but it was busy, and I didn't want to stop and set up, because I am lazy! I just couldn't help it. Matthew and Michaela encouraged me to take the shot if I saw something I liked. So I set up my tripod, and just before getting my settings right, security comes over and tells me I can't take the shot. At least with the tripod anyways. We get this a lot. It gets very aggravating at times, but they are letting us in the park with some pretty beefy cameras. So I took the shot anyway, without the tripod, and still managed to convey the feelings I felt when walking into the park that evening.

this picture conveys exactly how I feel every time I walk into the park. I love it!

wow! how did you manage taking 3 bracketed shots without moving since they wouldn't let you use the tripod?

Well, if you check the settings for this shot, my ISO is cranked to 640, and my shutter is at 1/1000. So I basically stood as still as I could with a fast shutter to get all three actuations off in a short amount of time.

Why the fuss from security about using a tripod?

Apparently it is a tripping hazard for people, and they view it as "professional" equipment.
