If you missed our Snowball Fight Safari or one of our exciting Snowfaris this past winter, here is your chance to learn how to photograph action-packed white stuff flying through the air!
It’s the 11th Annual International Pillow Fight, taking place on the National Mall on Saturday afternoon, April 1, 2018, at 2:00 pm! 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 safari will fill your social media portfolio with the next best thing: fluffy white pillow stuffings!
This will be a 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.
Meet at the Southwest corner of the intersection of 15th Street and Jefferson Drive SW, by the Circulator Bus stop. The closest Metro stop is Smithsonian (Blue/Orange Line) Mall exit.
E. David Luria is a professional architectural photographer trained in Paris by a protégé of Henri Cartier-Bresson. His work has appeared in over 100 publications, and his images currently appear in the annual calendars of the US Capitol Historical Society, including one on the cover. His Washington Photo Safari program, with a 5-star rating and annual Certificates of Excellence from Trip Advisor, has trained over 34,000 amateur photographers on 4,900 + photo safaris since 1999.
