I spent the weekend at the Nature Visions annual photography expo held in Northern Virginia. It is held each November and attracts some of the best speakers in the industry – Bob Krist was great and Julieanne Kost from Adobe is one of the best speakers on Lightroom and Photoshop that I have come across! If you are able to attend one of these Expo’s, it will be worth your while. However, that is not my main reason for writing. Always have your camera and always take advantage of what you can visit!
The Friday session finished at 4pm, and so I drove into DC (about an hour away) as I hadn’t got any images of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture (the abbreviation in the heading!) and as soon as we drove past it trying to find somewhere to park, I noticed the reflections in the glass panels. Everything was perfect for the shot – blue dusk sky, some color from the sunset and the illuminated Washington Monument. It just goes to show that every trip you make has opportunities!
