A Disney Perspective

The article that follows was posted on the Picture This! Disney Photoblog this morning.  I wanted to show it all to you and point you to Shrew’s Daily Shutters Challenge post on the subject of Perspective.   Perspective is an important concept for us photographers as we search for our views of the world around us.

Perspective is defined as ” to look through”. For photographers, it means to look at something differently. To find new perspectives. At Walt Disney World, where people take millions of photographs each year, finding new perspectives can seem a daunting task. I look at it as finding “my” perspective and sometimes a little help can open up whole new ways of looking at things.

The photo below of Minnie Mouse’s statuette was pointed out to me by another photographer. I have seen similar photos on flickr, too. But, I had never seen it at dusk with an orange castle softly focused in the background which turned out to be “my” perspective on this subject.

    This is a gorgeous shot. I can’t tell you what all these Disney photos are doing to me! Torture!

    We were originally planning on a two week long April trip, but now hubby’s job is getting in the way. Not sure when else we can pull off a two-weeker with the kids in school and my refusal to fly in winter, or book an August hurricane season trip. (I know…I’m impossible!) I swear one of these days we’re just going to make a rash decision, pull the kids from school and drive down for an adventure. 🙂

    This photo is almost wistful, as if Minnie is reflecting on the day and wishing it back. Great perspective, Scott.

    I never knew the right term for it, I often think of it as the image speaks to you. 🙂
