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.
Hillwood Museum and Gardens
The gardens at Hillwood offer incredible opportunities for photography!
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. You will pick up some tips on garden and estate photography and the use of your Macro lens.
The BIG news is that non-flash photography is now allowed inside the Hillwood Museum, with its extraordinary collection of Faberge eggs and other Russian artifacts. Mr. Luria will provide instruction on low-light shooting without a tripod inside a museum.
Here is what one client had to say about the Hillwood Safari:
I had the very good fortune to have David for a one-on-one session at the Hillwood Estate. I learned a great deal that afternoon. The tips, guidance, recommendations, etc. were constant and valuable. And he’s just a nice man. I highly recommend booking a safari. Kyrsten H., Arlington VA on Trip Advisor
