Five Minutes to Fairytale Photos ~ Angles

I think that the magic of a Disney vacation exists in three wonderful parts: the dreaming of planning, the pixie dust moments during trip itself and the memories you take with you for years to come.
Since I can't live in the Cinderella Castle Suite or even on property year round, pictures help bring a bit of the fairytale back into my everyday life.
In my enthusiastic pursuit of remembering the Magic, I take hundreds of my own pictures every vacation and hope to share a bit of my experience with you.
Angles can really make the whole attitude of a shot. Try getting above (pretty easy when photographing children) or below your subject sometimes.  These angles tend to change the way the light appears to emphasize the texture and capture the emotional feeling of the moment.
Let's say you are approaching one of the dozens of attractions or experiences at land or sea where the cast member offers you a set of 3D glasses.

Or perhaps walking up to Spaceship Earth.

I love the details in this photo they really capture the overwhelming feeling of walking through Future World in Epcot better than a straight on shot would.
“Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
~Walt Disney
So get out there, make mistakes, try a different angle, try a shot that shouldn't work, but might and see what fairytale photos follow you home.
