Cinderella Castle in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is frequently cited as the most photographed landmark in the world. Given this status, it can be difficult to take a unique photo of it.Realizing this, I’ve tried to find different angles, focal lengths, and composition to capture a unique (or at least less common) photograph of Cinderella Castle. One way to capture a unique photo of Cinderella Castle is to go infrared.
For those unfamiliar with this type of photography, to capture this image, I used a camera that has been modified so it only captures infrared light, and blocks out all light visible to the human eye, which is why this photo looks so “different.” No Photoshop trickery here, this is a “real” images, it just shows the spectrum of light that the human eye can’t normally see. Pretty cool, right? You can see a whole gallery of Disney infrared photos I’ve taken here.
Technical details: single exposure Nikon D70 Infrared and Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 lens. See our Disney Photography Guide for more photography equipment recommendations.
