Castle & Wreaths

Wreaths decorate Main Street USA in Walt Disney Worlds Magic Kingdom.

Wreaths decorate Main Street USA in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

I saw a similar photo from a fellow Walt Disney World photographer and remembered it when I was walking down Main Street USA earlier this week. Though I didn’t get the same angle and background, I did figure out I needed my Nikon 18-200mm VR lens set to 200mm to compress the wreaths, a small aperture of f/22 to get a sharp image from front to back and a long exposure of 3 seconds to capture the colors. All those settings required a tripod and remote shutter release which I brought with me into the Magic Kingdom for the first time. Oh, the things we do for our photography. 🙂

    You are all most welcome. I’ll get back to my regular blog on Monday as I finish out my 52 week project.

    Once I get through all the photos from WDW, I’ll put together a gallery for you all to visit.

    Birgitte, they do the same at Disneyland Paris for Christmas. In fact, they did it first and it was brought to the other parks over the last couple of years. You should check it out.
