DC Architectural Photography Workshop, May 21


Great, you’ve completed a project! Now the hard part: Documentation. Ever wonder how architectural photographers compose the images that go out in your firm’s marketing materials? Or are you simply a lover of buildings looking to make your mark on Instagram?

Either way, this architectural photography workshop hosted by the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., might be for you:

WHEN: May 21, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
WHERE: 801 K Street NW, Washington, DC 20001
Join the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. and architectural historian and large format photographer Bill Lebovich for tips of the trade for creating stunning architectural photography. Building on his extensive experience with HABS/HAER photographic documentation projects, this two-hour workshop will offer points of interest to both experienced and novice photographers looking to capture Washington, D.C.’s built environment.

Using examples from the extensive collections of the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., Library & Collections Director Anne McDonough will offer tips on how to organize digital photography files and suggestions on compiling the documentation necessary to make your contemporary photography work a possible resource for your descendants, future historians, and repositories such as the Historical Society.

COST: $20 members; $30 non-members. Advance registration and ticket purchase recommended. Onsite registration is subject to availability.

This workshop is part of the Street Photography Series, a slate of instructional workshops and historic walking tours covering all eight of D.C.’s wards. This series is designed to encourage active documentation of contemporary Washington, D.C. with a historical context, and culminates with the Spring 2017 For the Record exhibition at the Historical Society of Washington, D.C.
