Event Details

Treasures of the National Mall 


About the location:


Pierre L’Enfant originally conceived the National Mall as a grand boulevard, but today we know it as a 2-mile enclave of the Nation’s popular museums. Your instructor will use this familiar backdrop to discuss the principles of great photography.


We will start at the National Museum of the American Indian, one of the newest architectural treats on the Mall. The form and texture of this building provides plenty of opportunities to explore your creativity as we learn about exposure and metering. We will continue across the southwest border to the National Air and Space Museum, where we will explore composition and light. Finally, we will amble up to the Haupt Garden, outside the Smithsonian Castle. Throughout the day you will learn with a structured lesson that unfolds at each location and plenty of opportunities for one-on-one coaching along the way.



What you will learn:

  • How do you get your camera off of the Automatic setting?
  • What do all the other exposure options around the dial mean?
  • How would you get perfect exposure?
  • What composition techniques can you use for more impactful pictures?
  • What are the tips for impressive architectural photos?
  • How do you read and adjust for different light sources?
  • How do you capture memorable photos of people? 


More benefits

  • Maximum instructor to student ration of 1:12
  • Individual coaching as you work on your techniques
  • E-book after the photo tour with the principles covered during instruction
  • Post your photos on our Alumni Blog
