Washington DC – Dawn and Dusk with Phil Penman – August 4-6, 2022
Some of the best light in Washington DC is early morning and early evening. The sun is low and the landscape of the city comes alive with light and shadow. The light seems to dance off of the historic architecture and you can feel the history of the city come alive. People go into silhouette as they walk into to sun and seem to disappear into many of the monuments remembering those who have served and given sacrifice.
Join the Leica Akademie and Phil Penman as we explore the Washington DC. He will take us around to areas rich in texture when bathed in early morning or evening light. He will also be giving us insight into his creative process from how he sees to how he selects and then edits the final images.

- Planning your day of shooting
- Finding the light
- Chasing the light
