Washington DC has terrific restaurants, endless museums, and of course historic monuments. Add the blooming Cherry Blossoms to the mix, and you have a plethora of photo opportunities. With so much to do, people from all over the world converge on the city each Spring. Hotels can get crowded so its important to reserve your space now. I'm offering a $50 discount for participants who register before January 31st.
The workshop is limited to six people to ensure everyone receives personalized attention. I hope you can join us for a memorable day of photography instruction. For details, a list of recommended equipment, and registration info, please check below.
SUNRISE CHERRY BLOSSOM SHOOT 6:00 am - 8:30 am
Historically, the Cherry Blossom trees are at the height of their beauty in early April. To take full advantage of the warm morning light, we will meet at 6am for a sunrise shoot. There, we will create memorable photos of several historic monuments framed by magnificent Cherry Blossom trees.
LUNCH and PORTFOLIO REVIEW 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
At noon, we will re-gather for lunch and a portfolio review session. You will receive in-depth feedback and helpful advice on your images, post-processing technique, and more. Bring a CD of your photos for review on my laptop, or a more traditional print book. Alternatively, I can use my iPad to access your online gallery.
SUNSET and DUSK 6:15 pm - 8:45 pm
As the sun sets, we will photograph the numerous monuments and memorials in the National Mall. To maximize the magic light, we will continue shooting into dusk, creating breathtaking images along the way.
