After giving an orientation on the basic techniques of nighttime photography, Instructor E. David Luria takes you to the most photogenic areas on the western end of the National Mall. We begin our DC at night photo tour along the Mall at the Lincoln Memorial with its majestic statue of President Lincoln. From there we walk along the Mall and visit the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Three Servicemen Statue, the Vietnam Women’s Memorial.
At each location on this DC photo 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 helps you achieve beautiful, postcard-quality images of the Nation’s Capital. Great for black and white photography too!
