DC Sunrise by Smartphone Series: The Potomac River

Join WPS on a Sunrise Safari to Photograph The Potomac River with Your Smartphone!

Quick Details


Late-model smartphones have gotten to be very good at low-light shooting, so be sure to join early riser E. David Luria, architectural photographer and director of Washington Photo Safari, as he takes you to five different locations to catch the beautiful deep red light of sunrise with your smartphone in Washington, DC.

Mr. Luria will also help you take full advantage of the editing features of your phone to give even greater sparkle to your images.

On this first Safari in our series, Mr. Luria will take you to Thompson’s Boat Center on the Potomac to capture the red light of the sun coming up behind the Kennedy Center and the soft early morning light that shines on Rosslyn, Virginia right across the river. He then takes you to Washington Harbor to capture the early morning light shining through the arches of Key Bridge and the golden light on the Rosslyn skyline.

Here is a sample of the images you will get on this series of safaris:

Join us on one or more safaris at $99 per safari. If you drive, Mr. Luria provides transportation from place to place and will take you back to your car at the end of the safari. (METRO is not open this early)
