The Tidal Basin is a special place and surrounded with Cherry Blossoms even more so. Spend the morning capturing the photos to prove it.
We’ll photograph our way around the rim of the Tidal Basin capturing the Washington Monument and the Jefferson Memorial reflected in the water and framed by the cherry blossoms.We'll end on the steps of the Jefferson and photograph the paddle boats in the Basin with the Washington Monument and cherry blossom trees as a backdrop.
At each point along the way, we'll cover exposure settings, composition considerations and tips for dynamic photos.
All skill levels welcome (but participants should have some familiarity with their camera and its settings).
For best results, bring a DSLR camera with lenses in the range from 18mm to 200mm, a circular polarizing filter. No tripod is needed for this shoot as we'll have good light to work with.
