THE PICTURE OF THE DAY, 1/20/2015
“Lights, Motors, Action”
TIMING IS EVERYTHING!! A villain car explodes after being shot by the hero in Lights, Motors, Action at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I took this photo during Pixelmania 2014 and wanted to try to capture the split-second that the car explodes. I pre-focused on the villain car and waited until the hero started shooting at the enemy and as soon as I saw the first flash of the explosion, fired the camera and caught it just right. I really like all of the sparks from the explosion, making the photo much more dynamic than if it was just a puff a smoke. By zooming in very tightly and focusing on (no pun intended) just this one aspect of the action, it creates a very powerful image. I often like to zoom in and isolate details or the “story within the story” and catching little vignettes such as this is a lot of fun. Lights, Motors, Action has a lot of opportunities like this. I know how loud the explosion is inside of the stadium; how loud do you think it must be inside of the villain car? Enjoy your day, everyone, and be sure to check all the good doings over at WDW360!
