What you'll learn in this lighting class:

Here is your opportunity to AVOID the springtime crowds and enjoy Washington DC’s Tidal Basin ringed in vibrant color in the Fall!

You look through your camera viewfinder and see Washington, DC’s Tidal Basin ringed in vibrant color: deep red, gold, pink, orange, purple, and brown. Cherry blossoms in the spring? NO! These are Washington’s famous cherry trees in the FALL! What a spectacle! Who KNEW? You can frame the Washington Monument or the Jefferson Memorial in a circle of fiery red leaves, or you can zoom in on a huge cherry tree with its colorful branches arcing over the pathway and touching the surface of the water, what a great shot!

Here is your opportunity to AVOID the springtime crowds and enjoy Washington DC’s Tidal Basin in the mild weather of early November on a photo safari led by the man who knows were all the best shots are: architectural photographer E. David Luria, founder and director of the Washington Photo Safari. On this 2 and ½ hour walking excursion, Mr. Luria will first review general tips in travel photography and then lead you to the best views of fall on the Tidal Basin, assisting you with tips on exposure, composition, lighting, and making full use of all the features of your camera.

Our starting point, the FDR Memorial, offers hours of photographic fun, exploring the waterfalls, the Depression-era statues, and the depictions of FDR and Eleanor. Then we make our way along the Tidal Basin path, giving us great views of the Tidal Basin., the Washington Monument and the Jefferson Memorial all framed in multi-colored cherry blossoms.
