Visiting or living in Washington, one can always get a sense of how historically important it was and a sense of how this capital has shaped our nation. Standing above the rest of the city, the monument it is a constant reminder of George Washington described as ‘the father of his country’. Owing to financial conditions, the monument took many years to complete but it still stands today, a memento of those important times.
Washington DC Is A Wonderful Place For Family Portraits And Fun Time Outdoors
For these reasons, having professional portraits taken at the National Monument can be an important decision and can help to remind us of our pa st as a nation. Nothing can make you so proud as to have this monument in your life as a reminder. But how do you go about taking the perfect pictures and how do you know that your photographer is taking the best photos available?
First of all, it may sound a ridiculous point but choose a cloudy day over a sunny day. In sunny weather and especially at noon, the high amounts of light in the air can pale the subjects and the objects. Everything appears washed of color and can take away much atmosphere in the picture. However, on a cloudy day there is much more for your photographer to work with. The clouds can add both depth and atmosphere to your picture. In addition, there are many more particles present in the air which the camera will be able to pick up on, adding more colors and tones to your picture. If you have already booked your photographer and possibly signed a contract and turning on the weather report shows it is going to be a sunny day, taking pho tos early in the morning or at dusk will also give your photographer the perfect light for taking excellent shots.
So, you have arrived at the monument and you have the perfect weather conditions for the photos. But what about the composure of the venue? What should you photographer be doing? Well, he or she should be taking a variety of different shots: some with your whole body at a distance and some close up shots. It is not always crucial that the entire monument is in the picture and it is possible to get a good shot at a close up angle, too. But the important point is that the photographer is taking a mixture of different angles to find the best picture. With a monument as tall as the Washington DC monument, photos with the entire monument are of course going to have smaller figures in it, so ensuring that you have some closer photos will help against this.
