If you’ve ever thought about photographing the Nation’s Capitol and wondered:
"Where can I get the most awe-inspiring images of the most iconic monuments and memorials in Washington?"
Snap DC is the guide that will show you all the iconic locations plus the hidden gems that only locals know about.
I've been photographing the Washington DC area for over 10 years and I've learned there's a right way and wrong way to photograph the city. With over 25 million people visiting the National Mall every year, I’ve learned the best times of day that will get you the least amount of people in your shots, where you should be at sunrise or sunset and even the best parking spots for these locations.
Yes, there are articles online that can help you piece all these locations together but this book is the definitive guide to get all that and more in just one place.
This book contains many helpful maps and an overview of the area so you get a good sense of the area before you even step foot on the National Mall.
Plus I’ve included plenty of composition ideas for each location and every image is labeled with camera settings and camera equipment.
No fluff, it's just down to the point to get you to take photographs you can be proud of.
