We learned such an important tip on our May 2013 trip: grab a photographer! You’ve seen them – those photopass photographers located on Main Street U.S.A., in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, next to Carsland’s entrance…basically wherever there’s an ideal photospot, they’ll be there! Often we think that their services are only available for those who have paid for photopass, but actually these skilled photographers will take pictures of any park guest. All you have to do is ask and then hand them your own camera. While we were on Buena Vista Street in DCA, the fantastic Patrick (photopass photographer extraordinaire) saw us struggling to take a ridiculous 3-person selfie shot in front of this statue. He ever so politely offered to take the photo for us. Not only did he take a great shot, but he also gave us tips on how to effectively use our camera in the park (tip from Patrick: use the flash for full sun shots- it helps get rid of pesky shadows). What a guy! What a shot! Thanks so much Patrick and all you hard-working photopass photographers in the park who help make memories everyday!
