This past weekend was absolutely amazing for so many reasons. But most of all it was for the photowalk that happened Saturday at the Tidal Basin. Thank you so much to IGDC for hosting. I had the time of my life! Thank you to my friends who came out but also the new ones I met that evening. The weather was cloudy, the water levels were extremely high (the highest I’ve ever seen), but it seemed like everyone came out with amazing pictures. So before I share some of my own, I wanted to highlight some of my favorites from the walk. If you’d like to see more of what everyone created, check out #igdcsnapdc on instagram.
There were so many great images to choose from but here are a few of my favorites:
The beginning of our walk started at the Jefferson Memorial and we were greeted by prom! I love the way you captured this, @ciarasandborg
I’ve only known @abpanphoto for a short while, but the very first time we met, after telling me about her book #SnapDC (and a solid attempt at a Minnesota accent), she didn’t hesitate to give advice and encouragement to pursue my own project. / Congratualtions, Angela!! I’m so excited to see this labor of love finally become tangible. PS. Its available on Amazon so why are you still reading this?? (Link in bio to make it easy!)
@pootie_ting, the framing in this is incredible!
@jane_connors, I’m so glad you captured the heron under the cherry blossom trees. This turned out fantastic!
So many birds! But I love how they are framing the Jefferson Memorial. Stunning capture, @virginia.cheng
My Wellingtons sure came in handy while wading through flooded out sections of the Tidal Basin yesterday. Thanks @igdc for organizing this walk to celebrate the new book by @abpanphoto on everything you need to know to shoot in DC. Thanks to @zackowicz for his editing tips!

LOL talk about perfect timing, @mica4life. This makes me smile 🙂
The sky turned moody very quickly after sunset. This is so great, @dcrooks_us
And after the photowalk officially ended, the Washington Monument decided to light up the sky. This is AH-MAZING @zackowicz
Thanks again for those who walked! I appreciate you spending your Saturday evening with me. I hope you had a great time but most importantly felt inspired to take more pictures around the National Mall.
Snap DC is officially released on Amazon. If you haven’t already, check it out. It’s available in paperback or kindle and I hope you love it!
