Sunrise Over Jefferson Cherry Blossoms

Photography Guide to Washington DC Cherry Blossoms

One of the best times to visit Washington DC is during the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival to view the peak bloom of cherry blossom trees on the Tidal Basin. With amazing bursts of pink and white the cherry blossom trees create a huge burst of color in the nation’s capital. This year’s Cherry Blossom Festival is March 20 thru April 15, 2018.Guide to the Washington DC Cherry Blossoms

It’s difficult to plan a trip around peak bloom since the most accurate predictions are about 10 days before they bloom. I’ve seen many friends come to town and miss the peak bloom by a few days. Read More

Acadia National Park Jessup Trail

Fall Photos from Acadia National Park and Beyond

Over the course of a month I drove across the US through Chicago, Canada, Upstate New York, and Maine. If you’re interested in my road trip you can see bits of it on my vlog.

It was a pleasure to capture fall on the North Eastern coast. In areas I mostly haven’t discovered before it was truly a unique experience for me.

Chicago Instagram Spots

The 11 Best Places to Photograph in Chicago

I finally made it to Chicago Illinois, aka, the Windy City! To my luck a couple of my friends from Instagram were also in town so we got to explore some epic sights together. I also made a few videos from my trip. The Best Chicago Instagram Spots // ihitthebutton.com

I’ve followed many photographers from Chicago throughout the years so it was awesome to finally see the city in person rather than just from their work (which continues to inspire). Most of my time was spent in “The Loop” where many of these locations are. Here’s how I managed to fill three days taking pictures. Read More

National Museum Of African American History And Culture

National Museum of African American History and Culture

Thanks to Instagram and IGDC I had the honor of visiting The National Museum of African American History and Culture a week early. There was tons of construction still happening but it was an amazing experience.

Located right next to the Washington Monument on the mall the African American History and Culture Museum is a new highlight of DC’s skyline.

The massive 300,000+ square footage building’s unique shape draws you directly in. It’s mind blowing how many pieces from African American history the museum has collected, plus the building goes deep underground. Read More

Washington Dc Instagram Spots

The 19 Best Places to Take Pictures in Washington DC

I’ve spent years filling my Instagram account (@someguy) with beautiful photos of Washington DC. Including well known spots like the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and the Tidal Basin to less known spots in the city. The Best Washington DC Instagram Spots // ihitthebutton.com

I want to share some of the best places to photograph in DC! I’ve also included some of the best times to visit specific spots.

The fastest way to get around DC is to use the Metro. You can walk to most of the spots listed by heading to the Smithsonian metro stop on the mall. To get around on the mall you can use the Capital Bikeshare but I recommend riding the metro to go to more urban areas.

Here is my list of the best places to take photos in DC:

The Washington Monument

The Washington Monument from the Tidal Basin

The most iconic and recognizable building in DC is hard not to photograph since it’s DC’s tallest building. From the Tidal Basin, steps of the Lincoln Memorial or standing right next to it, the Washington Monument looks great at all angles.

Plus you can visit the monument 24 hours of the day which makes it a great place to photograph late at night. (Currently tickets to the top are suspended until 2019)
