Enjoying the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot on the second Disney World portion of our Disney Dream and Walt Disney World vacation. The pre-trip report for our forthcoming Alaskan cruise on the Wonder and our return to Disneyland has now started.
I have a fair number of very nice twilight shots. It's not a conscious decision on my part, but I don't consider the end of sunset to be the end of my shooting day. And, for that matter, the moments pre-dawn are fair game, since you have to be there anyway to be ready for dawn. If there's enough light to make an exposure, the scene has possibilities. You just have to ac-cen-tuate the positive, e-lim-inate the negative. (And that doesn't mean shooting slides or digital rather than film negatives )
My biggest regret is that my current camera has pretty poor low-light performance (noise). I have shots that look great in small sizes, but can't stand enlargement.
