What you'll learn in this on location photography class:

Learn tips for architectural photography - both interior and exterior!

If you have not been to the Franciscan Monastery, you are in for a treat! A little bit of Europe right here in DC, it is one of the great hidden treasures for architectural photography, a 93- year old Byzantine-style church modeled after Istanbul’s Hagia Sofia.

Outdoors we’ll enjoy many photo opportunities capturing the monastery, it’s arcades and beautiful gardens and sculptures. Moving indoors, learn the techniques of interior photography without flash and the use of color-correcting filters.

Special emphasis of this safari will be on helping you achieve architecturally correct (i.e. straight verticals) photos of the Monastery and it’s courtyard. We will explore the magnificent sunken gardens with its flowers and statuary. Once you see the flowers in bloom here, you will thank us for introducing you to this magical place! At each point on this safari will review techniques of composition, exposure and lighting.
