Here is a sampling of the photo you will get on his safari

True to our tradition of only taking you to the BEST places in DC for photography, this is a great opportunity to learn from architectural photographer E. David Luria the techniques of nighttime cityscape photography, shooting on the Manual Mode and adjusting the white balance settings for correct color. Our safari is timed to take advantage of the deep “Blue Hour” of civil twilight, and we will also shoot images of the Kennedy Center structure and the views of Rosslyn, Georgetown, and the Potomac River from the REACH courtyard.
