Icons of Capitol Hill Photo Safari
Washington DC is constantly getting attention just for the fact that it has the president in its presidents. Though, the president is often on vacatoin and on other places that you should care about. Whether or not we like we like him is irrelevant. Unless he has broken the laws, he is our president.
Capitol Hill is a great place that you should go to if you care about politics. You can get the chance to meet a lot of people that you may look up to. If there's someone from your state that is a part of Congress or the House of Representatives, you are going to get chances to tell them how you feel.
You also get to take some photos of things that you've never seen before. At least, if you're not a resident of the city. Even if you come here all the time, there is a chance that construction could be going on.
This city has a lot of history in making the country as good for people as possible. This is why there is so much drama when it comes to the person that we elect. There are many things that makes us imperfect, and that is going to come up in the election.
The great thing is that there are a lot of other things that are unavailable in the city. So many other things you must think about before going to the Capitol. If you like sports, than this is your city. There are more sports teams than you can count on one had. But it's great especially because the capitol one center isn't that far from the white house.
On this 3.5-hour photo tour, learn the principal features of any camera, plus the dos and don't of travel photography, basic architectural photography, outdoor portraiture, and interior photography (without a flash or tripod). Get hands-on instruction while taking pictures — arguably the best way to learn how to take great pictures.
Meet the professional photographer guide and the rest of the group at the old trolley desk at Union Station. Begin with a travel photography orientation before photographing the magnificent interior and exterior architecture. You'll then head to the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building, which houses the offices that support the work of the United States Courts. Climb Capitol Hill to photograph the Supreme Court and Library of Congress buildings and the East Front of the Capitol.
Continue on to the United States Botanic Garden, filled with beautiful displays of orchids, flowers, and plant species. Capture the late afternoon sun on the west face of the Capitol building, site of every Presidential Inauguration, before passing the statues of Ulysses S. Grant and the Union Army Soldiers in front of the building. You'll see the Peace Monument before concluding at the nearby Capitol Reflecting Pool.
By the end of your safari, you'll be familiar with all of your camera's functions, the basic principles of photo composition, and the beauty of Capitol Hill.
