DC Sunrise by Smartphone Series: The Tidal Basin

Join WPS on a Sunrise Safari to Photograph The Tidal Basin 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.

Jefferson Memorial at Sunrise

On this third Safari in our series, we gather on the Inlet Bridge, to catch the early morning light of the dawn coming up behind the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument and the entire Title Basin area. We then move quickly to the FDR Memorial/Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial area to get the same deep red of sunrise coming up behind the Washington Monument.

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)
