Washington DC Film Photographer
As an extrovert (and I mean, like 98 on the Meyer’s Brigg’s scale), there are very few things that I’d prefer to do alone. Truly, though, one of my favorite things to do is slip on my headphones, blast some Adele and wander through an art museum by myself. I don’t do it often, but when I do, there’s something that just ignites inside me. The Louvre, Musee d’Orsay, The Uffizi, The Art Institute of Chicago, Musee de l’Orangerie – these are truly some of my favorite places in the world. Home to some of the most awe-inspiring and magnificent pieces of art. I don’t make it to Washington DC often enough, but any time I find myself in the city, I always pay a visit to the National Gallery of Art. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve been, but on one particular occasion, I thought to bring my little 35mm camera and snap a few pictures. Impressionist art has long been one of my greatest inspirations – those colors! I love getting close enough to the paintings to see the brush strokes, to be as close as Monet or Renoir was to one of their masterpieces. Seeing this kind of art in person truly makes me giddy, and after photographing some of my favorite paintings at the National Gallery, I’ve made a point to take more pictures (when I’m allowed) in art museums.
The National Gallery of Art is open to the public and fantastically free. This might seem like an ad for them, but seriously, I just adore art museums. This one is definitely worth a visit if you find yourself in DC!
