Quick Details


Photography at the International Pillow Fight

It’s the 12th Annual International Pillow Fight, taking place on the National Mall on Saturday afternoon, April 6, 2019, at 3 p.m.! Join us as we cautiously wedge our way among the pillow fighters with our cameras, shooting on fast shutter speeds on continuous mode, to get those exciting shots of silly adults acting like children with pillows!

So, in addition to your cherry blossoms photos, this DC photo safari will fill your social media portfolio with the next best thing: fluffy white pillow stuffings!

This is a photo class in sports photography, and after the pillow fight it will be followed by a walk down to the Tidal basin to photograph the cherry blossoms! There will be instruction on travel photography at each step along the way by professional architectural photographer and Washington Photo safari director E. David Luria. Any camera is fine, including smartphones, but we recommend DSLR cameras with rapid shooting capability, wide angle to telephoto zoom lenses, like 18-270 or 16-300mm and adjustable shutter speeds and lens hoods to protect your camera against flying pillows.
