On this Safari we teach the principles of travel photography and camera use by wending our way slowly along the Tidal Basin path towards the Jefferson Memorial.
The gardens of the late Post Cereal heiress Marjorie Merriwether Post are among the most beautiful gardens in the Washington area.
Adjoining the very elegant and popular Hillwood Museum in upper northwest Washington, the gardens offer incredible opportunities for photography – the paths, the mansion, the greenhouse, the statuary, and the refurbished Japanese Gardens. And in the fall these gardens are SPECTACULAR with deep red leaves framing the garden hedges.
The safari will be led by architectural photographer E. David Luria, director of Washington Photo Safari. Non-flash photography is now allowed inside the Hillwood Museum, with its extraordinary collection of Faberge eggs and other Russian artifacts, where Mr. Luria will provide instruction on low-light shooting inside museums without flash or tripod.
