Architectural and Commercial Photography

Finishing up a marketing photo project for Jones Lang LaSalle ( JLL),  commercial real estate, this week, which included a panorama of the ever growing Tysons Corner office and residential landscape.  It’s always fun to see the area from a new perspective–especially for photographers.

Also on the horizon for me/ Pawpro Media is a basic travel photography class coming up on October 13 at the Tysons Corner REI store.  This is the second time I’ve taught this class, which covers great tips on improving your photos no matter what kind of camera you use. See the REI website if you’re interested in attending as seats are limited. REI Basic Travel Photo Class

Spectacular Summer Sunrise at the Washington Monument

_PAW4984_5_6_7_8_tonemappedHere’s proof that the early bird photographer gets the worm.

These two shots of the Washington Monument were taken only minutes apart, but the results demonstrate the difference between good and spectacular lighting.  I just needed to be there to capture the drama.  Thanks, Mother Nature!

If you’ve ever wondered why photographers are out so early, I can’t give you a better example of how a few minutes can make a huge difference.  The low angle sunlight reflecting off the thin layer of clouds really adds to the depth and impact of the top photo.

Hope you enjoy it.

 

Washington Area Treasure: C&O Canal and Great Falls

I often forget about the beauty of Great Falls and the #C&O Canal because they’re so close to home, but these spots are real treasures–especially for #photographers.  Here are some shots I captured this week on both sides of #GreatFalls.  Don’t forget that this year our great #NationalParkService celebrates its Centennial. 100 years of service to our #NationalParks.

Though I have to say, the amount of trash I saw left behind on rock formations and trails was disappointing.  Some of it is even labeled.

Neil, pick up your trash!
