We’re excited that this Wednesday night at 6pm, Derrick Story, author of Pocket Guide to Digital Photography and proprietor of The Digital Story, and We Love DC will be putting on a Photowalk through Chinatown and Penn Quarter. We will gather at the Friendship Arch (pictured above) from 6:00 to 6:10, and we’ll probably walk about 90 minutes, before finishing at RFD at 7:30 or so for a round of tasty beverages on me.

We’ve also got a feature slot lined up on Thursday morning to feature your night shots of Chinatown and Penn Quarter, so if you can get a rough cut of your shots from the evening posted to our Flickr Group before 8am on Thursday, that would be most excellent. Let us know if you’re coming, just put a comment in the thread, and we’ll keep an eye out for you Wednesday night.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.

  2. I’m new to all of this, including new to DC. Is this for those with a real camera? It seems like a great way to get to know the city, but I only have a digital point and shoot camera… Would I be totally lost/would it be a good idea for me to come?…

  3. I’m planning to attend this. I’m excited about it! I’m new to shooting night shots so any help from you guys will be much appreciated!!!

  4. Daphne, as long as you love photography, equipment is just details. Trust me, I completed the better part of year’s project 365 with nothing but a point-and-shoot.

  5. I absolutely love my point and shoot, and I think mastering the P&S is a great challenge to every photog. Bring it out, Daphne, we’ll be psyched to see you.

  6. For those of you planning to do night photography (or even twilight), make sure you bring either a tripod or even a monopod (Gorillapods are faboo AND compact to boot!) because you’ll need the stabilization.

    Sorry to miss out on this one; hopefully we can set up a WLDC holiday photowalk in December!
