As pretty as the nation’s capital is by day, at night it really shines - Learn how to photograph the DC skyline at night!
As pretty as the nation’s capital is by day, at night it really shines!
So, on this new safari we take you to three of the best places to photograph the city in its “blue hour” and nighttime lights, while a professional Paris-trained photographer gives you guidance on camera and smartphone settings to get the best images!
Limited to 4 clients only, our safari begins at the Lincoln Memorial where we show you the best spot to capture that lovely “blue hour” iconic view down the Reflecting Pool towards the Washington Monument and the US Capitol, framed by the pillars of the Lincoln memorial. We also photograph the beautifully illuminated Lincoln statue and the views of the Rosslyn VA skyline from the back of the memorial building.
As “blue hour” turns into night, we then move by car to the famous World War II Memorial, with its beautiful fountains arcing up into the night sky as visitors are silhouetted against the bright white waters of the fountain. We also photograph its poignant Wall of Remembrance, a tribute to the 400,000 Gold Star mothers who lost their sons and daughters in the war.
Our final stop is a 34-story high observatory in Arlington, VA known as The View at Central Place Tower, with its spectacular overview of the entire DC region, giving you the opportunity to capture that fleeting image of the Washington skyline that you might get from you get from the left-hand window of an airplane landing at Reagan Washington Airport from the north.
At each location, architectural photographer and WPS Director E. David Luria provides tips on lens usage, white balance, exposure and composition. The safari ends at a location right across the street from the Rosslyn METRO station on the Blue/Orange Line. Bring smartphone or camera with tripod and all lenses.
