I just can’t get enough of the sunrise photos from “One More Disney Day” at Disneyland. It was my best EVER day for photography in the parks!
Capture candid photos of your family in the park in addition to posed shots. Posed shots are nice, but often time candid photos capture those special moments much better. When you do go for posed shots, try to mix up the poses with some fun stuff, and not just the typical “here we are smiling in front of this object…” type shots. Those get old quickly.
The question I have is, how is it taking your equipment to the park? What camera bag do you use? … Do you save a day for photos, and bring limited equipment on most days?
On most days, I take all 24 pounds of my camera gear with me to the parks. Taking it on rides is no issue, but that much extra weight can be a chore. I rarely use everything I bring with me each day, but you never know when the perfect situation will present itself to use a particular lens, and you can only use what you have. If carrying around all your gear doesn’t sound appealing, I recommend renting a locker at the park, and storing some of it there. At least that way you have fairly quick access to it. As for the bag(s) I use, check out our photo bag recommendations here.
