Photo of the Week - Festival of the Lion King

The Festival of the Lion King is easily one of the best shows in Disney World.  Most Disney shows are people just singing and dancing.  The Lion King show has acrobats, fire jugglers, and stilt walkers. 

If you want to take pictures of this show there are some rules you need to follow.   First turn your flash off.  Next put your camera in the "S" mode if you have it.  When you do that a little number should show up.  Set that number between 50 an 125.  Stay as still as possible. 

You have to do this because a flash doesn't do any good with a show like this.  Even if you turn it off your camera can't figure out what to do with lighting like this.  It sees a lot of dark with a little like so it tries create a long exposure.  This causes blur and the bright parts of photo to be far too bright.

Setting your camera to "S" you are telling the camera how long to expose the shot.  This still might not work because your camera might compensate for the shorter exposure.  If that's the case you'll need to change your mode to "M" and also set your aperture to five or six.
