Photographing the Sunrise on the National Mall



Learn photography skills with this hands-on, experiential journey!

Jan 30, 2022 - Dec 04, 2022. Time Varies

One of the best places to capture sunrise in photos is from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, looking down the Reflecting Pool. This sunrise photo tour of the National Mall conducted by Washington Photo Safari director E. David Luria gives participants the opportunity to photograph the sun as it begins to rise in the east at behind the illuminated US Capitol building and the Washington Monument, and then, after sunrise, projecting its golden light onto the grey walls of the Lincoln Memorial itself.

Mr. Luria works with you to assure that you get the correct exposure and white balance into your images, shooting on the manual mode, and using the Kelvin color temperature scale if your camera has that feature.

Washington Photo Safari is a service of E. David Luria Photography.
