On Friday, January 20, 2017 our new President of the United States Donald J. Trump will take the oath of office at the Capitol. This is an earlier post showcasing our beautiful city from our Washington DC Photo Walk.
If you love beautiful architecture and history then Washington DC is the place to be for photography. We are native Washingtonians and no matter how many times we think we have photographed it all, we are reminded that we have just “tipped the iceberg” in shooting this amazing city. We have enjoyed many photo walks from our first photo walk and assignment in college until today. It’s beauty is unsurpassed in our estimation. Our next adventure will occur in September/October with photo walks at sunrise-sunset in well-known and “so-called” secret locations. They will be fabulous photo walks and with the incredible restaurants, hotels, history and people in DC, just the best life has to offer for photographers.
This favorite image of the United States Capitol from one of our photowalks is my current timeline image. It was shot in full-daylight with blazing sun, which, in DC, is a good time for the beauty of the alabaster to glow in its light. It is truly a “shining City on a Hill”!
As fans of black and white photography and especially in film and infrared, it was appropriate for a post on HDRCHIC to share images from our rainy day photo walk (during the Worldwide Photo Walk) which have been sitting in folders waiting for processing. Rain and wet surfaces always peak out color and textures and especially so in black and white. These are random street shots which are fabulous for light application of HDR of black-white images and application of Silver Efex Pro._Jay

What better way to enjoy a Saturday than photo walking with friends. We often participate in photo walks both our own, local and the biggie, Scott Kelby’s WorldWide Photo Walk. For photographers who love working in HDR-DRI, the endless subjects for creating amazing images are everywhere and photowalks allow friends to get together at various times and places to share together their love of photography. This image is from our local Winchester Photowalk WWPW led by jArt. It was a beauty and the Classic Car Show provided more than expected from the walk.
