Disneyworld, theme parks photo tips.

1. During the parade, donot stay with your wife and kids, shoot from across the street from them, this way you can compose your shots to include your family with the characters, float. (same technique inside boat rides, thake the opposite or behind them) same for some of the shows.
2. Fireworks, I stll have my 35 mm slide show of the fireworks I took in 1976...I am sure you know how to shoot fireworks on tripods and long exposure if not at bulb. Select a vantage point that will let you shoot wide with Cinderella's castle in the foreground.
3.night shots and stage lit pictures ay require fast lens and high iso.

Take family picture with iconic backgrounds as the Castle etc, thus would need selftimer on tripod.

great tips tony. i will apply them when the chance comes :)

yeah i dont have a tripod at all, i've looked but i think a monopod would work better in my situation, not sure which one will hold a 40d though.

My kids are 18 and 10 i doubt they even watch a parade anymore, sometimes we do at night but not everytime. We go every year so parades are just traffic jams to us. lol

I do want to do a panoramic view from the train station Tony, got any links or help on that. I'm looking at 7 photos and i dont think i'll have a monopod in time so hand held or sitting on a handrail.

Handhold and do a panoramic. There shouldn't be any issues.

I'd say 90% of my panoramics are all handheld, usually 10-14 shots in each:

awesome shots Harm!

so its a good idea to take 10-14 and find a focal point in the viewfinder to start your second photo,then the 3rd,4th ect.. and the go back up top if they are big, like the castle?

I hastily scanned a few old photos
this was in 1983, most probably with 50 mm on a Nikon or 5 cm on a Leica

IMAGE: http://tonyniev.smugmug.com/Family-Photos/Old-scans/i-LN7G3Vb/0/L/Scan-13-L.jpg

this one is 1976

Also 1976, using Tamron zoon on a Nikomat

1976 campsite inside Disneyworld, with the 1975 Grand Squire Ford Station Wagon

1976, I am sure this one is a leica shot by my eldest son, I have the Nikon on my shoulder, notice the deep color of an old print

1983 maybe shot by a niece who came with us

Yup - I even use a CPL much to people's dismay, but it does the job. Find a good focal point - even if it is using AF. I sweep left to right, overlapping by a good 30-40%. Take plenty of photos, double each photo (cause when you go home and you **** up one shot, you have a backup to finish the pano).

I use LR3 to tweak all the photos for WB and straighten any horizons, noise etc. Then I use the Hugin freeware software to stitch it all up for me and blend any colours.

That castle - the innards were used in the Harry Potter movies. Alwnick Castle. About 30mins drive north of where I grew up.
