The Senate Reception Room in the Capitol is a great place to shoot because of the natural light that streams in from the windows. It’s also a place where you can see Members engaging in real conversations, versus what you see at a news conference or staged event. Nothing is scripted, so you can find more relaxed interactions, such as this Tuesday meeting between Sen. Mark Warner (center) and Jim Koch (right), a founder of the Boston Beer Co., which brews Samuel Adams beer.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
