Library of Congress Photo Safari

The Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress is one of the most beautiful buildings in the nation’s capital with its ornate interiors and grand staircases, and it has re-opened to the public on a limited basis – Thursday – Saturday, from 10-3, with timed entry passes. After an orientation on architectural photography, we begin this safari by photographing the fountains and the exterior of the building. Then we move inside to photograph the incredibly beautiful Great Hall with all its hand-painted details and statuary and finish in the Observation Gallery where we photograph the Reading Room.

At each point on the DC architecture photo tour, tips on low-light and mixed-light photography, taking pictures of the vaulting ceilings in the Great Hall, and how to use wide-angle lenses to maintain straight verticals will be discussed as well as techniques of composition, exposure, and lighting.

This safari is currently limited to 5 participants, and the Library of Congress requires that all visitors maintain social distancing and wear a mask while indoors.

What to Bring

  • Camera
  • Wide angle lens equivalent to about 28 mm (in 35 mm format)
  • A circular polarizing filter, if you have one
  • A telephoto of at least 100mm
  • Extra charged battery
  • Extra memory card
  • Weather appropriate clothing

*Tripods are NOT allowed
