Moonlit Monuments

 

LEARN NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY IN WASHINGTON, DC

Washington might not have the reputation of the city that never sleeps, but as night falls, DC is awake, alive, and memorable in its own right. The majestic DC Icons stand peaceful and serene, bathed in a mixture of moonlight and the soft spotlights that illuminate them.

The monuments at night provide photography enthusiasts a perfect excursion to capture the other side of Washington. On our Moonlit Monuments Photo Tour, a professional photographer will lead you to DC's most memorable night sights. 

In small groups, you will learn how to photograph each of the Monuments using natural light. 

 

WHAT YOU WILL PHOTOGRAPH

  • The Reflecting Pool at twilight;
  • Inside the Lincoln Memorial;
  • Streaks of red created by cars going over the Memorial Bridge;
  • Haunting faces of the Korean War Memorial; and
  • Beautifully illuminated fountains of the World War II Memorial.
 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • How the camera captures exposure and why it doesn't work well at night;
  • What settings give you the best results and why they worked best;
  • How you override your camera to capture perfect exposure;
  • How to use your autofocus even in the dark; and
  • Composition ideas for great night photos.

I personally help each person set up their camera. I am always close by to answer questions and show how you can use the principles yourself.

Bring your Digital SLRs and tripods on this photo tour, as you will need the flexibility to capture the best of DC at night.
