Tidal Basin Night Photo Walk

Have you ever seen the amazing shots of the Jefferson Memorial at night and thought I would like to do that?  Well this is your chance.  Join me for a photo walk around the Tidal Basin in DC.  You will have the chance to get some great shots of the Jefferson, MLK, and FDR memorials.  Plus the moon will be just past full so if we have clear skies there may be some amazing reflection shots on the water.  So pack up your gear and join me for a great night.

    and last question, I only have a mono-pod... will I still get some good shots? or should I try and borrow someone's tripod for the evening?

    • Ken P.

      I don't think I have ever met anyone who claimed they could hold a camera steady enough on a monopod to not blur a 2+ second exposure.

      I am pretty sure that I can' t hold it steady... which is why I use a mono-pod bc I can't even for day shots. I will definitely be borrowing tripod !!

    Does it cost anything for us to go?

    September 14, 2013

    • Crystal V.

      No there is no cost. The only possible cost would be parking or the metro ride.

      For sure this could be a great opportunity and loads of fun.

    This should be a wonderful opportunity for some great shots. One question, are we going to be allowed to use our tripods? I've had the park police bust my chops on mulitiple occasions about that.

      Ask anyone who has ever shot the Cherry Blossoms, everyone is on a tripod, so don't sweat it. Runners will find a way around you, they always do. Cheers.

    • Ken P.

      Crystal, Brian thank you for the reassurance. Now that I think about it ... the times when I have come to the attention of the park police I was either on the mall or in one of the museums.
