Almost everyone brings a camera to the Disney parks. Whether it’s a point & shoot, a digital slr, or even the camera on your phone, pictures make excellent souvenirs and are fun to share with family and friends after your trip! If you want to improve your picture taking skills, here’s a simple tip:
Remember the “Rule of Thirds”- When something catches your eye (say your little princess meeting Ariel), envision a tic tac toe board. The spots where the lines meet are most appealing to the eye for some reason. So instead of placing everyone in the very center, set them to one side and also capture some of their environment.
Karen grew up in the Boston area and traveled to Disney World many times with her parents and sister. Always staying at the Fort Wilderness Cabins gave the trips a feeling of a home away from home. It also started the tradition of attending the Hoop Dee Doo Review on each trip! Somehow that show sparked her interest in the Disney College Program. Which she did in the fall of 2002, working as a hostess @ Captain Jacks in Downtown Disney. Now as an adult, Karen finds herself traveling to the parks on a yearly basis! Photography has always been a hobby of Karen’s, but over the past few years it has become her passion. It’s even taken her to her favorite place! The Make a Wish Foundation sent a family to Disney for a week and Karen was lucky enough to be their photographer of choice! She got to tag along and photograph their memories being made. She hopes to get that experience again someday! You can find more of Karen’s photography on her site www.KPportraits.com.
