    Most of my beauty and the best pictures seem a little blurry.

    The show was fabulous. All 3 of us loved it.
    As we were getting ready to go I got a tap on my shoulder. The couple behind us asked me what kind of camera I had, what lens I shot with and what mode, etc. They said they could see my pictures on my screen and were loving them. They had a similar camera but didn’t bring their telephoto lens. It kind of made me feel good that they liked what I shot too.
    We still had time before dinner, so I decided to get Claire’s picture taken by the photographer, so we headed towards the Atrium.

    May I ask what camera and lens did you use for those pictures of the show. They are excellent and you don't seem to be impacted by the low light (noise). Thanks

    I used a Canon 50D. I used a Tamron 75-300 mm lens. I shot at ISO 3200 and in manual mode. I was pretty happy with the results.

    As we walked into the Atrium we ran into Aurora doing a walk around!

    The photographers were getting ready to start so we hopped in line…well we made the line because we were first!

    Claire did a little dancing and twirling while we waited.

    Then I realized that Claire’s hair looked horrid. So I took out her braid and did the finger comb thing and tried to make it slightly presentable.

    It was then time to get pictures. As they took some of Claire, I would randomly take a few too. Of course I don’t have all the fancy flashes and was doing it quickly so they wouldn’t tell me no…so mine aren’t so great.

    Theirs were pretty good though. There are a few with half closed eyes and such, but we got a good batch.

    And then I got some with Claire as well.

    This would be one of my favorites.

    What great photos of Claire (and her Mom!) by the photographer. I can't pick a favorite...they are all so good.

    All the show pictures are fantastic! I can't wait to see it for myself! Everyone says that is their favorite of the shows, so I'm expecting it to be really good.

    I love all the Rapunzel pictures! Claire is so cute in every one of them. I really want my DD to have a costume or two to wear during our trip but she always complains that they are itchy! Every single one I have ever bought her, weather it was Disney or Target, she says it is too itchy. It really aggravates me. I wish I could sew... I would make something myself that isn't lined with sand paper! :rolleyes:

    I absolutely love the mother/daughter pictures! Did you buy those from the ship photographer? I'm really afraid that he is going to get way too much of my money before I get off that boat! How could anyone resist buying those!

    I totally agree! Great pics. The dress is so pretty.

    Yes, I do make costumes. I LOVE making costumes. If you've seen me in the Snow White costume, that's one of the ones I've made. I just wish I had all the time it takes to make all that I've got ideas for.

    Its nice that you could see so well from the balcony. When we saw The Lion King at the Kennedy Center in DC, we were SOOOO high up I was getting dizzy!! :laughing:

    Thanks! :lovestruc

    Thank you! :cloud9:

    Thanks. That particualr photographer was really good. I liked her best of them all. She took her time and did actual poses.

    The shows are good.
    I hope you do a TR too!
    Claire is starting to complain about itchiness now too. In years past she never once did. I think we are going to have to wear a shirt or tank top under some for now on.
    I bought the CD, which was not cheap, but I knew going in how much it was and tha I mist likely would get it. So I tried to get as many pictures as possible. The only down side to the CD is that you don't get cute borders on your pictures like the prints have. But some of the borders were super generic anyways.

    I can barely thread a needle! :laughing: If we ever go at Halloween time I want to dress up as Cruella DeVil.

    Thanks. It was nice to have a few pics with her...even though I take such horrid pictures. They forgot to put the skinny lens on the camera! :rolleyes1

    No more updates...I have to catch up on my own PTR. :rotfl2::rotfl2:

    I like when a photographer takes the time to do poses, etc., along with some natural shots.

    OK! :rotfl: Everything I had written up is posted now, so I will have to do more tomorrow again. And I haven't edited any more pics, so it could take awhile.

    Where did you get the matching Mickey tie-die shirts and the little dress for Claire? If you do not mind me asking.
