    Question Help with Pictures!

    Hello! On August 25th my cousin and I are going to Disney World and I'm super excited. While we are there I asked my cousin, who is a photographer, to take my senior pictures in Disney. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I should get them taken? Also, does anyone have any idea how bad the crowds might be (we are staying until the 30th)? Thanks!

    usually the photopass people are pretty good with pics and there always at all the good spots so you could have you cousin take the pics next to the photo pass people or just purchase them from disney

    There are so many beautiful places for photography in WDW. The sky's the limit. How about the rose garden in Epcot, or the tea garden behind the London area. Both might offer you less guest traffic to set up the shot. Try to avoid getting a sunburn before the photo. You don't want to look like a lobster. Just keep in mind that you'll want to dress in something other than a t-shirt. Most of the picture will be of YOU, so the background shouldn't be the focus.

    The crowds for the last 2 weekends have been really do-able. We were at MK this afternoon, and most of the rides in Adventureland, Frontierland and Tomorrowland were between 10 and 30 minutes. Fantasyland had the long lines. I don't know if this trend will continue through next month.

    I'll be there the 23rd to Sept. 1rst. =]
    I think is going to be fairely crowded only because of the free dining but it shouldnt be too too bad.

    I would take the picture infront of Cinderella Castle =]


    See you in the parks!

    we are going mid aug and the crowds are not bad at all i would say.... photopass photographers always are in the main spots in front of the castle, hat, tree of life etc... and you can always look around for the "kodak picture spots" in the parks they always have nice suggestions

    I think the gardens in front of Le Cellier are very very pretty and they photograph well for us. We only have a small digital camera so I'm sure with a NICE camera they would be spectacular!

    Try one of the less visited sides of Cinderella Castle. You can get a very pure shot, especially by the wishing well.

    You might try an angle near the top of the treehouse, shot from above with all that distance down... or the British phone booth always makes a unique background

    Mid to late Aug crowds are not too bad - have been the last two years.
    Sorry to be an uneducated Brit - what's a 'Senior picture'?? Something to do with school??

    Every year (or for each grade) our school system highers a photographer to take our school pictures at the school. Those pictures are used for the school yearbooks and for parents and family to have. Senior pictures, however, are taken privatly by a professional photographer, and tend to look much nicer. It's just something more special for your senior year.

    Thanks for the info. Most schools in the UK don't have anything like yearbooks, which is a shame as I imagine it is a lovely keepsake. Mind you, many schools now have a 'prom' which is something we have pinched from the US, so maybe yearbooks will follow.
