Colonial Williamsburg stands to fulfill any photographer's need for unique subject material during any season of the year. The historic buildings, colorfully costumed interpreters and working craftsmen provide plenty of options. Be sure to rise early and capture photo opportunities Williamsburg offers on Duke of Gloucester Street before it gets crowded. A wide angle and zoom lens will prove useful. If you're lucky enough to attend the December Grand Illumination, bring a tripod and use a slow shutter speed to film the fireworks display.
Beyond the historic area other regional suggestions include Busch Gardens, Jamestown and Yorktown. Choose from the offerings below for the Williamsburg's best photo ops.
