What You Can Expect
Whether you’re a novice or expert, these tips will help make great photos even better.
We met David at the right time and place and started with an introduction to the principles of composition, planning your picture and camera technique. Delivered in a friendly and humorous manner David made us feel welcome and at ease. Going around the monuments David point out that using monochrome on the statues and getting in close really delivers those memorable pictures. Lunch at Union Station was a lesson in long exposure pictures plus knowing how to apply the white balance to interior pictures. Overall this was one of the best photographic tours that I have done as we had a local professional photographer delivering great tips and showing us parts of DC that we would not have known existed.
David, our tour guide and teacher, was excellent. I learned a lot about photography and we saw the sites as well. If you want to improve your enjoyment of your camera - this is a tour for you.
Note that this is perhaps more a teaching safari than a tour covering most or all monuments. A novice or low-intermediate photographer will learn a lot. But, ideally, you will have several days AFTER the tour to visit your choice of monuments to get your photos.
Really enjoyed this one. It was nice to get instruction on how to improve my photographs. The only downside (a small one) was that we went to the same places I'd gone to on other tours I booked on this trip.
