Continuing with the theme of Castle Fireworks, this is from Music, Magic, and Mayhem during the Pirate and Princess Party.

ZZ, how do you get such beautiful night shots? When I was down in Sept, that was one thing I seemed to have trouble with. I am new to my SLR so I'm sure that has something to do with it.

There's not trick, really. You just need a tripod, then knowing your camera settings. I have one of those point-and-shoot Canon Digital Elph camera, so it certainly isn't as fancy as a SLR. Yet, I'm pretty happy with it.

If you can set it for a manual setting with ISO 100 or so, turn off the flash, and set it to a 2 second delay (if you don't have one of those remote thingy that can snap a picture without you having to touch the camera, then the 2 second delay isn't necessary), then you're all set. My camera has a "fireworks" mode, but I seldom use that because it opens the aperture a wee bit too long.

Good luck.

Zz.

Also, Zzapp, where did you take those castle pics from? Looks like the train station, but I remember they leave the lights on over there.

Those are the "Cadaver Dans", which is really the Dapper Dans.

I'll reveal my secret on the BEST location to videotape and get the best firework shot. It is on the 'bridge' connecting Main Street and the hub. So it is not exactly at the top of the hub (that position is too close for videotaping the fireworks), but slightly further back on Main Street. The bridge also has a slight arch to it, so at the middle of it, you are a few inches higher than the surrounding. That few inches can mean the difference between a clear shot at the castle and someone's head getting into your view.

So now you know my secret. Smile

This picture actually won one of the weekly photo contest in one of the Disney fan forum. It is also one of my favorite, and it's not even a night picture! Smile

I see! I've never seen the Cadaver Dans in all my MNSSHP trips. Strange how you can go countless times and not see everything.

Did I hear somewhere that the Dapper Dans are no more?

Great tip, Zz! As soon as we all learn how to work our cameras at night we might be able to steal your secret. laugh

Well, what threw me off is your statement that "... buildings around the magic kingdom like epcot are amazing..". It sounded as if this is an "epcot" building at the Magic Kingdom. I know where that is taken from.

This is not from WDW, obviously, but still one of my favorite. It is, of course, Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland, and was taken during the 50th Anniversary celebration.
