Zoo Lights Photo Tour

Join me for a walking workshop where we learn to master the principles of night photography with holiday lights


About the location:

The National Zoo is transformed this holiday season with more than 500,000 environmentally-friendly LED lights, turning the zoo into a virtual winter wonderland. Lit animal silhouettes, musical light displays, and a new garden scene light sculpture make for truly magical sights...and great photo opportunities.

What you will learn:

  • What are the principles of night photography?
  • How do you get the best photos of holiday lights?
  • What is the best way to compose scenes where the lights tell a story?
  • How will we get shots of the lights without capturing distracting crowds?
