The Disneyland Project

After visiting the self proclaimed "Happiest Place On Earth" I realized that I simply can't have every image I want after one visit. Nor can I have every image I want after 2 or 3 visits. Its an on going project. That is where the Disneyland Project was born.

I was raised on many things Disney. It is a part of childhood and it still is apart of me today. I love Disneyland and most things dealing with Disneyland and the Walt Disney Company. The Disneyland Project is something I have wanted to start for a while. Every visit I make will consist of me taking my DSLR. I wan't to capture as many images of Disneyland as possible. As Disneyland changes so will my Photography.

Part of the reason for this project is because I will always be looking to buy new gear. With that new gear comes a different way of seeing things. It really makes you think about the small details that lie within the entire park. Friday was my experimentation phase. I already have TONS of ideas of what I would do differently and how different lenses will give me what I want. So please without further ado Here are a few images from my first set in my Disneyland Project. Enjoy.

Haunted Mansion

The World Of Tomorrow

Jack O Lanterns

Also I will be blogging multiple post's on my experience of shooting at Disneyland and the do's and don'ts and what I will do differently. Lastly, I still have many more pictures to go through so more is coming. Good Day.

Welcome

Welcome

As the image says. Welcome, or to quote the great Walt Disney "To all that come to this happy place: Welcome." I will be heading out to Disneyland this coming Friday and hopefully I can manage to get some great shots. It's a place that I have always wanted to shoot at and hopefully will be able to get some nice night photo's since that is what I am looking forward to shooting the most. If I can't get some good night photos then most likely I will have some day shot's and later on in the future I will get some night ones once I learn the ins and outs of night photography. For now I say welcome and wish me luck on my night photography.

Photography Projects

These last few months I have gotten more and more into photography sometimes I am more into it than film making because its much quicker to get into. I can just pick up my camera and go shooting. I have really been inspired by Photographers like Thomas Hawk to get out their and start capturing the world around me. I think what he does photography wise is truly amazing. I aspire to be on his level.

That's why I have started to think about some photography projects that I can take on and start building different bodies of work. The bulk of my photography on Flickr are of my house pets because they are always around and its easy to capture photographs of them. I am now starting to push myself to begin shooting things like neon signs, landscapes, buildings at night, architecture, models even, different objects like candles, holiday decorations, cars, anything and everything is fair game for me. I just want to create images that people hopefully can connect to and maybe even inspire them.

I am still undecided about what my first Photography Project should be but when I figure it out I will share it here of course. I have the day off tomorrow so I will get out and shoot some stuff. Also please thank a veteran for their dedication to our amazing country. Good Night.
