Day 3: Details {10 Days of Disney Vacation Photography Tips}

It's Day 3 of the 10 Days of Disney Vacation Photography Tips! Today let's talk about photographing those Disney details. If Disney is good at something it is paying attention to the details. You may get caught up in taking that perfect photo of Cinderella's Castle but slow down and just look closer at everything around you. The photo above is in the window at the Cafe Orleans at Disneyland. The perfect place to spot Tiana and Naveen - you just have to "dig a little deeper". 

The pavilions around EPCOT's World Showcase are full of so many beautiful details. Like this camel in Morocco. Grab a margarita from Mexico or a beer in Germany and just spend some time in each country photographing some details. 

Even your Disney resort is full of wonderful details to capture like the lamp from our room at Aulani and these lanterns at Kidani Village at Animal Kingdom Lodge. I often will wander around during our afternoon break and take photos of our resort. The attention to detail is one of the reasons we love staying at a Disney resort! 
Try zooming in or getting closer to your subject to capture more detail. Like the photo above of the Nemo's Reef on the Fantasy. Seeing the water up close like that really gives you the feeling of being in that splash play area! 
Another great example of getting closer. This photo is from the Ooh La La Lounge on the Fantasy. Below is a photo of the lounge. I love having both the details of the glass bubbles and the whole room. It really makes me want champagne! 

You know another place to get some great detail shots? When you are waiting in line! A great way to pass the time. 
Ok these last couple of photos are because Christmas time at the Disney parks is my favorite time of year to capture the details. I just couldn't do this post without some Christmas photos! 

You can easily apply the topics we discussed in the first two days in this series to photographing details. Change up your perspective and remember that rule of thirds! If you missed that last couple of posts you can find them below. Tomorrow I will be talking about paying attention to what is in the background of your photo!
