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

Dedicated in 1913, the Cathedral of Saint Matthew the Apostle (which honors the patron saint of civil servants) plays a major role in the Catholic life of the nation’s capital. It is the seat of the Archbishop of Washington, Pope John Paul II celebrated Mass here in 1979, and President John F. Kennedy’s funeral was celebrated here on November 25, 1963.

Designed by New York architect C. Grant La Farge, the Cathedral has been cited as having “one of the most beautiful church interiors of modern times.” Its walls are laden with shimmering mosaics suggestive of those found on in the renowned churches of Ravenna, Italy.

With special permission from the Cathedral staff, we are pleased to offer an exclusive Photo Safari that takes you inside the spectacular St.Matthew’s Cathedral, teaching you how to photograph church interiors without flash, capturing the architectural beauty of a Cathedral laid out in the form of a 155’ x 136’ Latin cross, with the interior rising 190’, and how to photograph its stained glass windows.

Fee includes a per person donation to the Cathedral.

This Safari is taught by architectural photographer E. David Luria, who will make his 28mm F3.5 shift lens and his 10mm fisheye lens available to Nikon camera users.

Recommended gear: any camera with exposure controls, lenses in the range of 18-200mm. Wider lenses such as 11mm will work well if you have them. A sturdy tripod is essential for this class as we will be shooting indoors in lower light.This Safari is taught by architectural photographer E.
