Workshop: Photographing Dogs In Studio

 

Houston, TX

Photographing dogs takes a lot of patience and some special considerations. When you add a studio environment and lights into the mix, it comes with a whole new set of challenges. In this workshop, I will share how I approach photo sessions with dogs in a studio setting. From preparing for the session to that first interaction with the dog, you will learn how to set the tone for the session to make it fun and get great images.

 

In this workshop I will cover everything from preparing for the session, understanding dog behavior, getting the dog's attention, different studio lighting setups, camera settings, lens choices, and some basic dog retouching techniques.

 

We will also have some adorable dog models available to practice techniques and lighting.
