Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C by Mohamed Boraie

A Prism, a camera, and dinosaurs! Yes, this is what happen when I visited the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington DC!

Recently, I have been trying to introduce the idea of using a glass prism (amazon) in my photography to add an additional natural flare to the image and to help me discover news ideas and inspirations in each image.

Some of the images below contain a natural flare from using a glass prism. 

Enjoy the images!

Location: Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History

National Gallery of art in DC- the Senegal St.Joesph Gospel Choir by Mohamed Boraie

This Sunday, I went with my wife to the National Gallery of art in DC to attend the Senegal St.Joesph Gospel Choir at West Garden Court. 

I packed my camera and a 50mm lens and headed there around 2pm dreaming about some cool shoots and interesting compositions.

We got there but once I got the concert program my eyes / heart fell after reading the following words:  β€œphotography is not permitted during the concert.”I thought to myself...well it is time to sit down and just enjoy the lovely music. And I did!!

The West Garden Court is a beautiful garden hidden inside the museum and is opened regularly for concerts and events. The beautiful lit indoors garden makes it a unique location to enjoy a performance. 

After the event I roomed around the National Gallery of Art looking for interesting compositions and frames to capture.

Below are some shots I took during my trip back from the concert. 

Till next week!
