Georgetown at Night

Capture Georgetowns beauty with your camera

Quick Details

Nighttime in Georgetown

On this Georgetown photography tour you learn the techniques of nighttime photography without flash, using a tripod, and long exposures, and adjusting the white balance settings on your camera.

Our safari begins at Washington Harbor with an orientation on nighttime photography. Then we shoot the great view of the Kennedy Center, as seen from the banks of the Potomac River. We then walk through the streets of Georgetown, photographing the 18th-century homes and storefronts, illuminated in the soft glow of old-fashioned street lamps, with long exposures giving us the red and white tracing lines of taillights and headlights from the passing cars. We also move along M Street and up Wisconsin Avenue to capture the vibrant life of this historic entertainment, dining, and shopping neighborhood on this one-of-a-kind tour of Georgetown.
