Museum as a Backdrop


A few friends and I braved the rain and cold to trek down to Washington, DC to take each other’s portraits at the Hirschhorn Museum. Museums are wonderful places to shoot. They are always changing, typically have beautiful architecture and lighting, and offer unique perspectives for otherwise straight forward portraits.

Most museums allow photos, especially the ones that are free admission. The Hirschhorn’s employees were so sweet, once they realized we were taking portraits they tried to give us helpful suggestions as to where the coolest spots were.

Lovely models are Rachel Cooper (@rachellcooperr) and Seth Schafer (@seththetailor)


Hope you all enjoyed this post. Please give it a like and a share if so!
Images were shot on a Canon 5D Mark III with a 35mm f/1.4 and a 24-105 f/4
