photowalk help on the Wonder

Hi DCL photogs.....

I have been approved to lead a photowalk on Oct 13th. This is through Scott Kelby's 5th annual worldwide photowalk.

I will be leading the walk on the Wonder!!!! I will be on the California Coast Cruise that day and was upset that I would miss the walk so my DH said why don't you lead one on the cruise. I applied and was approved!!!
We will be in port that day in Ensanada but the walk will be on the ship!

I know the ship fairly well but would love to get ideas from all of you. Do you have a favorite place on the ship or even a secret place to get great shots? Any and all suggestions are appreciated!!
Thanks so much
denise

What a unique location. Good for you. I think it will be very important you do it very early in the am or you will have lots of cruisers in your photos.
Anyone who knows what the WW Photowalk is will be onboard with this. I usually walk the ships about 6:30 am to take ship photos without crowds.

With that said do the high traffic areas first (pools and lobby) and then spread out over the rest of the Wonder.

I have no idea what this walk is all about, but I could read the excitement in your typing, so it sounds like it's a really cool thing! I've always liked taking pictures of the "hidden mickeys" all over the ship. And another favorite area is all the cute scenes they have in the hallway by the shops. I also like to take pictures of all the details that you normally just pass by....the kites on the ceiling at Beach Blanket Buffet, stuff like that.

This could quite possibly be, THE most depressing thing I've ever read. I figured they were fattening, just didn't realize how much!!! I guess that explains a lot of the pounds I felt post cruise !!!

I'm so sorry. I cant even imagine your pain. I, too, love your signature.

It is all thanks to the Nikon 35mm f/1.8 lens. This shot was 1/4000 second at f2/.8.

Thanks it sounds like you are quite good with the camera! If only I knew what you meant I would be set. =) That and I only have a point and shoot. I've always wanted to learn how to operate shutter speed and all that jazz. One day, it is on the bucket list.

Calories in a Konk Cooler...

there is NO WAY there are 1200 calories in one drink.......
Having ordered dozens over the years....they add the 2 shots, a premade mix of the juices and LOTS of ice into the blender....all which comes out to, at most 16 oz!

Oh boy. Then it's closer to 800 calories, which is the average for the run-of-the-mill piña colada (which is because of the coconut mix), and still an absurd amount of calories. I am not here to dispute nutrition information - I was just stating why my DH doesn't have any pics of a Konk Kooler (or any frozen drink for that matter). Yes, I'm in vacation, but I am still not ordering something like that. The ones on the rocks have more than enough for me LOL! What y'all choose to do is none of my business! For those of you who do - enjoy!

Now back to the Photos of the Day please!!!!

We were on the island that day as well...the sky was so dark! Great picture!

I can't even begin to read this entire thread but many of the photos are amazing. I finally got my first 'real' camera this year and can't wait to take it on the ship with me. Also taking my P&S with my underwater housing for our dive excursions.

I don't always know what I'm doing but will all the equipment at least I look good!
