The Sword in the Stone at Disneyland Park

Through a Photographer’s Lens: Waterfalls of the Disneyland Resort

posted on May 8th, 2013 by Paul Hiffmeyer, Chief Photographer for Public Relations, Disneyland Resort


Picture this: You’re winding through Ornament Valley riding in a shiny, convertible race car. While taking in the desert scenery and after traveling through an archway, there it is – just to the right – Firewall Falls, the most beautiful waterfall in these here parts.

Well, at least that’s how I felt the first time I rode Radiator Springs Racers at night. It only seems fitting that Firewall Falls is the second waterfall featured in my series, “Waterfalls of the Disneyland Resort.”

Here are a few more photos I captured that morning before sunrise at Radiator Springs Racers. Check back for the next post in my waterfalls series.

That’s beautiful! It reminds me of Multnomah Falls in Oregon!

Great photos. I’d love to know what settings you used to get these shots.

Craig,
I use a digital single-lens reflex camera. The first photo was taken with an ISO of 400, aperture of F-22 and a shutter speed of 4 seconds. The last photo settings are ISO 250, aperture F-22 and shutter was set at 8 seconds. Also I used a tripod and a shutter release cable and if you can, lock the mirror up. It’s a good idea to experiment with different settings and see what you like the best.

Thanks so much for the answer, Paul. My passion is Walt Disney World photography so we make 6 to 8 trips a year to feed my addiction. I always like to know what exposure others used to get “that” shot. If I ever make it to Disney Land I’ll be easy to spot – I’ll be the guy lugging a dslr, tripod and 15 lenses through the park!
