To many people live behind the lens today
 
Decided to break my no photos rule during dark performances to show everyone this. Taken during the castle projection show. I was sitting in the hub next to the chip n dale statue and this was the view.

Sea of screens

And of course those flashing away

I can only imagine the hundreds more behind me. And yes after these two photos I put my camera away. Took at the beginning of the proformance.

Wow. That picture makes an impact.

I've never done this, is this not allowed?

If its not then, maybe these people are just trying to make memories.

It's really only not allowed on the dark rides. However, your camera and flash are not likely to work at such a great distance and without more light.

There's a rule about no flash photography on dark rides but nothing about the screens on the cameras. Even worse is people holding up tablets to take pictures.

This is the new reality... so many people are missing the moment, trying to capture it in grainy video and distorted audio recordings. This is the scene at one of the concerts I work on every year. Kids camp out for several days on a downtown sidewalk to try and win wristbands to see their favourite performers, then they miss the whole show... even thought the whole thing is broadcast in HD and they could just record it on a PVR... :confused3

Many things people do in pursuit of photography infringe upon the enjoyment of others. Bright LCD screens in dark rides, flashes at inappropriate times, devices held over the head blocking the view of those behind them. I really wish these yahoos would cut it out.

Others use their cameras in a way that adds to their own enjoyment of Disney, while being considerate of others. Why would you care if they decide to view it from behind a lens?

I think the OP is making a statement more about living life in front of the screen and not behind it....... NOT flash photography and smart phone screens. Folks ARE going take pictures, or try to take pictures, especially outdoors:rolleyes1

I agree, Mom, so long as they're not blocking me or blinding me, then they can do what they want in these situations. The rides are a different thing entirely.

Depressing and sad.

Excuse me, miss, would you mind taking a photo of us as a group?
