Animal Kingdom Entrance on Flickr.
As I mentioned yesterday I’ve been testing out replacing Lightroom with Capture One in my work flow. My work flow previously was Lightroom->Photomatix (when applicable)->Photoshop and now obviously I’m trying C1->Photomatix->Photoshop. This shot I had worked on last week but wasn’t very happy with some of the elements especially some of the colors. I couldn’t seem to dial it in just right. With C1 I was able to have it 95% of the way there before I even went in to Photoshop and then easily take it the last 5% of the way there once it was. Basically I think I’ve decided I’ll be hopping on the 50% off deal before the weekend is up. Thanks for looking and have a great weekend everyone!

After Midnight on Main Street USA on Flickr.
I have been using Adobe Lightroom in my work flow now since I first started out as a photographer almost 4 years ago. After a few days of testing I believe I will soon be replacing it with Capture One. One thing immediately apparent when comparing photos processed through Capture One vs Lightroom is the photos from Capture One seem to almost lift a layer of haze off the photos when compared to Lightroom. Another aspect about Capture 1 I really like is it has custom color profiles that were created specifically for whatever camera you are using. I found straight out of the box color was much more accurate and dialing in for the final edit was much easier. Not applicable here but I also found skin tones to be much nicer and realistic when using Capture One compared to Lightroom. There are some drawbacks I’ve encountered related to automation in my workflow, but they may be because I’m still learning the program rather than any shortcoming in the program itself. Once I’ve had a chance to spend more time with it I’ll be sure to update my findings.  Now the point to all that is today’s photo is the first shot I’m posting where I used Capture One for processing instead of Lightroom. While I’m not sure how dramatic a difference will be noticed at web viewing sizes (or without something to compare it to) the difference in clarity at 100% was pretty shocking. As I mentioned when processed through Capture One it was like a layer of haze had been lifted off the image. I still want to spend a few more days before I commit fully to changing over, but they are having a 50% off sale til July 27th, so unless C1 decides to send me a free code I’ll have to decide soon!

Yellow Brick Road to Emerald City on Flickr.
This is one of the more fun dark ride shots to process thanks to all the wonderful color available to work with. Highlights on Dorothy can be an issue if you’re not careful, but other than that the scene is very nicely lit which allows you to shoot at a lower ISO and generally end up with a sharp clean image. The greenery also can look a bit grungy but nothing that can’t be easily fixed with a curves adjustment. Enjoy.

Yacht & Beach Pink Morning on Flickr.
Today I have another shot from the Yacht and Beach club, though taken on a different morning. Getting some resort shots in the mix finally was nice and hopefully our next trip I’ll be able to check out some other resorts for photos as well. Enjoy.

Diamond Horseshoe on Flickr.
I’m not sure I understand why Disney allows places such as the Diamond Horseshoe to sit and be used only on special occasions like Holidays. I’m not advocating they get rid of, but rather they return it to an every day experience. Enjoy.

Big Thunder Mountain on Flickr.
I took a very similar shot back in 2011 but I was being rushed and results were less than spectacular. Fast forward a few years and I’m pretty happy with this one. The one missing element that I had in the previous shot is a nice starry sky. Unfortunately with all the cloud cover and low visibility there weren’t many stars to be had this trip. Still, the actual area turned out much better this time. Enjoy. TheTimeTheSpace - My Portfolio | Facebook | Tumblr | Instagram | Twitter | Youtube Video Series | Smugmug - Buy prints!

Cinderella Castle in Vertical on Flickr.
I took this shot immediately following the kiss goodnight. I opted for vertical because that was really the only way I could get the entire Castle in the frame from as close as I was. Only 2 of my 5 frames turned out as the others had smearing from some shifting on my ballhead. This has reinforced that I’m going to replace my Gitzo head ASAP with a RRS head and L-plate. The gitzo just doesn’t cut it for shooting vertical reliably. Thanks for looking and enjoy!  P.S. Be sure to check out my latest shot (their current cover image) for the Swan & Dolphin on their Facebook page TheTimeTheSpace - My Portfolio | Facebook | Tumblr | Instagram | Twitter | Youtube Video Series | Smugmug - Buy prints!

Prince Eric’s Castle - The Sequel on Flickr.
Really this is more like part 9 as this is now I believe the 9th shot I’ve posted of Prince Eric’s castle. I’m still not a huge fan of the blue, but I’ve done the color correction thing already so I’m just gonna roll with it. I did find it humorous when looking through the official Disney images for the ride they seemed to have turned off most of the blue lights for their official photo. Even their own media teams hate those blue lights, lol! Enjoy TheTimeTheSpace - My Portfolio | Facebook | Tumblr | Instagram | Twitter | Youtube Video Series | Smugmug - Buy prints!

Country Bear Jamboree on Flickr.
For this shot I just wanted to get a simple straight on shot of the the Jamboree building. Nothing crazy going on here but I will take a moment to complain about the shortened version of the County Bear Jamboree currently playing. I assume the shortened version was put in place to be able to push more people through on any given day but unfortunately the parts they ripped out are in my opinion what gave the show a lot of its heart and soul. Sure, most of the classic songs we all remember are still in place but most of the jokes and talking bits are gone. Hopefully one day they will restore it to former glory. I’m sure they can spin it as something like County Bear Jamboree Extended Unrated Version! Who else misses the long version?

Rock ‘N’ Rollercoaster & the Oversized Guitar on Flickr.
I’ve been shooting at WDW for a couple years now and it’s amazing there are still things I don’t have shots of. I may have had a shot of the guitar far in the background from another shot but this is the first time I’ve shot it as the main focus. Honestly once you go through the gate to this area I find the area kinda boring but the guitar is kinda cool I suppose. Thanks for looking and have a great weekend everyone!
