Dog and Pet Photography: Sit, Stay, Learn
Course Number: 5
Level: Beginning to Intermediate
Pet photography has its own unique challenges that are different from photographing people.
This class will deal primarily with photographing dogs, but we will spend a little time on other animals too. Time will be spent talking about dog behavior and working with dogs, communicating with dogs, dealing with fearful animals, making a dog comfortable, and getting the best expressions.
We will go into detail about posing dogs alone, groups of dogs and with people. We will talk about lighting in the studio, and outside mixing ambient and flash. We will also talk about the unique challenges of lighting dogs. Then there is Photoshop and retouching that is specific to dogs.
Whether you just want to add pet portraits to your existing portrait line up, you want to photograph your own pets better, or you want to start your own pet photography business, this class has something for you!
