After giving an orientation on the basic techniques of nighttime photography, Instructor E. David Luria will take you to the most photogenic areas on the western end of the National Mall.

Learn how to use your camera in the field, not in a classroom on this DC photography tour! The instructor takes you to some of DC’s most popular attractions: White House, Lafayette Park, the Einstein, Lincoln, Korea, and Vietnam Three Servicemen Memorials, and finally to Union Station, where you learn to make all the moving people disappear!
