Day 9: Tell a Story {10 Days of Disney Vacation Photography Tips}

Today's post is fairly simple - tell a story with your photos. This goes hand in hand with photographing the details. Take photos of that delicious Disney snack or the Space Mountain sign before you ride. 
Taking a photo of your hotel room. If you want to really tell a story take a photo before any of your stuff is unpacked and then take a photo once all of your things have exploded all over the room. I know I'm not the only one ;) 
 If you happen to be serenaded by the Mayor of Main Street, take a photo!! 
When you give your kid a lollipop and he eats half of it in 5 minutes definitely take a photo of that. I mean, that's impressive! 
Capturing both your dessert and the Irish dancers tells the story of your lunch at Raglan Road perfectly! 
If your friend is stung by a bee (for the first time ever!) and you have to go to First Aid most definitely take a picture. 
I feel like most of my trips have at least one set of photos of all of us trying on some funny Disney hat. 
When taking a photo of the view from your hotel room, get your husband in it. This adds a story element to the picture. 
If you are at EPCOT during the Flower and Garden Festival, take a photo of one of the signs. See how I'm using my background AND following the rules of thirds? It all ties together!
A combo of a photo of your kid driving and the track of Autopia creates a story. He's doing a great job of not bumping into the car in front of him! 
As a Disney foodie I take a ton of photos of food. Seriously, a ton. My travel buddies know that once we get our food no one can touch their food until I take a photo. Taking photos of food is part of the story for us as eating at Disney is one of our favorite parts of the trip. 
A photo of your last menu on your Disney cruise is a great way to end your vacation story. 

It's pretty easy to tie everything together and it's so nice to have your photos to look back on after you get home. It can make it easier to remember some of the details of your vacation :) 

Tomorrow is our last day! I will be talking about something I have a very hard time doing - making sure you as the photographer are in the photos. If you missed the rest of the series follow the links below.
