Fee includes a $10 donation to the Shrine.
The National Shrine of Immaculate Conception, the largest Catholic basilica-style church in the United States, is a photographer’s delight. Located in northeast DC, the Shrine sits on magnificently landscaped grounds with a beautiful garden, fountain and statuary.
Our safari, led by architectural photographer E. David Luria, will first capture these outdoor scenes (provided the weather is good) and then move indoors with tripods and tungsten filters/white balance to photograph the soaring architecture of golden transepts and arches, little niches, altars and statuary that line the corridors of the Shrine.
At each point on our safari, techniques of composition, exposure and lighting will be addressed.
Any camera will do but for the best results, we suggest you bring a wide angle lens equivalent to about 28 mm and a telephoto of at least 100mm, You will need a sturdy tripod.
