Five Minutes to Fairytale Photos ~ Come to the Dark Side
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.
One of the first things you learn when taking pictures is that, ideally, the light should be relatively behind you and your subject in front of you. In this way the light shines on the subject and you get a clearer view of whomever you are photographing. Which is nice idea most of the time but sometimes, it's a good idea to take a trip to the dark side.
At the beginning of this basketball game, I took a few action shots of Chris shooting some hoops.
Nothing is really wrong with the picture, the diagonals of the court are pretty interesting and I managed to catch an action shot on my iPhone without motion blur. I really love the lighting at this time of the morning, because of the way it makes skin look luminescent and just magical and warm. Let's see what happens when I throw out logic and shoot into the rising sun.
