Changing Faces in Photoshop, (getting the best shot from two)

When shooting the daytime parade at Walt Disney World it is best to set your camera to shoot multiple times with one shutter release.  The characters and the parade floats are always moving and by taking multiple shots at a time will increase your chances of getting one really good one.  What if you took several shots and still didn’t end up with a good picture of you favorite character? In this video I will take two photos of Belle taken during the daytime parade at the Magic Kingdom and combine them to make one good photo. This technique is quick and easy to do and designed to be used by a Photoshop beginner.

Step Inside the World of Belle Through Her Magic Mirror at Magic Kingdom Park

My Wild Africa Trek at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

by Christopher Rainville

Wild Africa Trek debuted in 2011 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. Since its debut I have seen many reviews on various Walt Disney World fan websites as well as reports featured on various Disney podcasts. I have always considered the adventure a little too expensive for what it consists of despite the glowing reviews all over the web stating that it’s definitely worth the money which is currently at $189. During our trips down to Walt Disney World we often spend time with some friends of ours who live in Florida. They had suggested that we give the tour a try and since my wife seemed like she wanted to try it, I decided to go along with the group. My main goal as an avid photographer was to try to get photographs of the animals that exceed the ones I get on the Kilimanjaro Safari. I booked the tour for 8:45 AM just before Animal Kingdom opened. They have several bookings throughout the day and stagger the groups so you never see any others while you’re on the walking portion of the tour. You will however see other safari trucks during the break period.
