Our location at the Library of Congress gives us plenty of photo opportunities. From exciting holiday themed photos, to architectural shots, to creativly using intentional camera movement.
We begin photographing in the Great Hall and capture the beautiful architecture and sculptures as well as the gorgeous Holiday tree. We'll then explore some of the hidden gems in the building interior.
We'll also be looking at Exposure Bracketing for high dynamic range shots and how to use in-camera level (if your offers it).
Throughout the class I will guide you to some of the most photogenic spots at the Library and make suggestions on exposure, composition and framing.
If the weather is good, we'll do a bit of shooting outdoors on the long staircases, the fountain sculptures, as well as some shots of the Capitol. Bring a circular polarizer if you have one for our outdoor shots (weather permitting).
