Belle, A Christmas Fantasy Parade, Disneyland
Taken during the 2:30 parade on November 19, 2011.
I was using a 50-135mm zoom lens that I had rented for the weekend. This was taken at 135mm. Sometimes you need a little more reach (300mm).
This was taken at the south end of Main Street in front of the train station. There are a couple of spots in this area where the sun streams in highlighting the performers and renedering almost everything else into darkness if you use spot metering. That and late afternoon sun makes for wonderful lighting. The only problem is getting the perfomrers to turn towards the sun as they are moving away from it.
