Teacher: E. David Luria

What you'll learn in this on location photography class:

Washington DC’s National Mall is the showcase of the nation’s capital, home to its most famous and historic monuments. One of the best ways to see it is through the viewfinder of your own tripod-mounted camera at twilight and at night, guided by a professional architectural photographer.

After giving an orientation on the basic techniques of nighttime photography, Instructor E. David Luria will take you to the most photogenic areas on the western end of the National Mall. We will begin our walk along the Mall at the Lincoln Memorial with its majestic statue of President Lincoln. From there we’ll walk along the Mall and visit the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Three Servicemen Statue, the Vietnam Women’s Memorial and if time, the whimsical Albert Einstein Memorial. 

At each location on this safari, David reviews exposure, how to shoot at night WITHOUT using a flash, white balance settings and how to achieve interesting composition with close-up detail that truly brings out the meaning of each memorial and statue. These Memorials photograph MUCH better at night than in the daytime and this safari will help you achieve beautiful, postcard-quality images of the nation’s Capital. Great for black and white photography too!

NOTE: Non-photographer companions/spouses are welcome to attend at no charge.  However, please bear in mind that this is a workshop in nighttime photography, not a traditional “tour” of the monuments at night. We spend much more time at each monument and statue than one would spend on a typical tour, discussing such issues as composition, white balance, exposure, lighting and lens and camera usage, issues a non-photographer might find BORING! For a historic overview and genuine tour of the DC monuments at night, we recommend any of DC’s excellent guided tour companies.

Sturdy tripod and pocket flashlight required.  There is minimal walking on this safari.

Offered every other Friday during spring, summer and fall.
