Following Through on an Idea
Most of my early memories of the Magic Kingdom come from the photos that we took on our first visit. It is hard to fathom, but I first went to the Magic Kingdom 34 years ago. The look of the photos from those film days inspired me to try something while I was there. I had an idea for a wide park shot that looked like an older postcard. On the morning I made this photo the light was hitting the castle just right to get a very interesting photo. When I had made that photo I zoomed out to make this one with the postcard idea in mind. I think that it really has that old time feel to it. I toyed with taking out the cell tower, but decided that it should stay.
Using Perfect Effects 9 On the Image
I don’t use my plug-ins nearly enough. I have some really cool plug-ins for Lightroom and Photoshop, but I just don’t leave Lightroom that often. For this image I used a Holga filter inside of Perfect Effects 9 by On One Software to get this look. It really gave me the old film camera look that I had in mind when I made the image.
