It’s hard not to play tourist when you are in the midst of thousands of other tourists. If you go to a theme park like Disney, it’s hard not to take the same photos that thousands of other people have taken. I would have liked to had time to walk around and compose the creative and unusual images that no one else might have taken. But hey, it’s Disney. The rides are calling your name and there are so many things to see and do, in such little time. We were at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for only one afternoon, so time was extremely limited. And I didn’t want to be slowed down with a large camera and lens, so the camera of the day was the iPhone.
The Sorcerer’s Hat, the Studios’ main icon is a giant showpiece based on the hat worn by Mickey Mouse as the sorcerer’s apprentice in “Fantasia. This was taken with my iPhone as we were closing the park down, so most people were gone. The iPhone doesn’t do a great job in low light, but a little noise reduction processing and it doesn’t look too bad.
