THE PICTURE OF THE DAY, 2/6/2014
Around the Partners Statue in the main ‘hub of The Magic Kingdom are numerous smaller bronze statues of some of Disney’s greatest characters. I tried to photograph them during Pixelmania but due to the parade taping I was only able to get to a few of them, as most of the area was roped off.
I wanted to use the red poinsettias for the Christmas season as they made for a great backdrop in which to make this photo of Minnie Mouse. I got in close, zoomed in tight, and opened the aperture to its widest position to get a nice shallow depth of field, rendering Minnie Mouse nice and sharp and the background soft and out of focus. I was using my Sony NEX-6 mirrorless with the 18-200 lens for this image.
Thanks for checking in once again today and enjoy the rest of your day.
