Next time you pull out your camera at one of the parks, remember Tic Tac Toe. The points of the grid where the lines meet are proven to be the most appealing to the eye. Instead of working to get your main subject matter (The Castle, Goofy, or even a Dole Whip!) right in the center of the shot, have it be off to one side and capture the subject matters environment. Not only will it help tell a story, it makes for a more interesting shot!
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.
