Garden of Lights at the Mormon Temple Photo Safari

The Mormon Temple in Kensington, MD puts on a spectacular display of lights during the holiday season

Quick Details

The Mormon Temple in Kensington, MD puts on a spectacular display of lights during the holiday season, with trees, bushes, reindeer, crèches, and other Biblical scenes, some with live models.

Our shooting itinerary will take us to all the lighted displays put out by the Mormon Church each year in December. The bushes are decorated with 300,000 lights, and the Temple itself is awash in a soft white light, providing a great opportunity to practice shooting at night with a tripod. Washington’s own professional architectural photographer, E. David Luria, provides training in night time composition and shooting without flash while explaining the best white balance settings to use under these conditions.

This safari is a must to add to your holiday memories and for creating holiday postcards!
