Here’s a fun way to approach photographing in busy tourist attractions. Be creative! Easier said than done I can hear you saying. Really, when confronted with people everywhere, start looking from different angles, get low, get high or just tilt your camera.
Three weeks ago, I showed you how I used tourists watching a show in front of Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World to create a good travel photograph. The photo today was taken a little before that one. I tilted my camera to eliminate most of the people and included the Partners Statue with the castle as a backdrop.
Another way to get your creative juices going is to try photographing a subject from above, below and at the subject’s level. When visiting the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan a few years ago, I got this photo of the Ford GT-40 race car which raced at Le Mans back in the late 1960’s.
I like this photo as it shows other people enjoying the museum. I still wanted a more personal view of this car. I got down low in front of it and went “eye to eye” with this powerful car.
Disney park fans have a saying, “Look up, look down”. I have an addition for all photographers, get LOW, get HIGH and look ALL around. Let your creativity go and enjoy the magic!
