DC Sunrise by Smartphone Series: The U.S. Capitol Area

Join WPS on a Sunrise Safari to Photograph The U.S. Capitol Area 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 fourth Safari in our series, we stand on the west side of the Capitol Reflecting Pool to capture the sunrise coming up behind the U.S. Capitol building reflected in the waters of the pool. We then drive over to the modernistic East Building of the National Gallery of Art and photograph the lovely glow of sunrise coming up behind that structure with the famous pyramids designed by architect I.M. Pei in the immediate foreground.

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)
