Online: Photographing Pets

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on July 9, 2020 at 7:00 pm


In response to COVID-19 and recommendations by the CDC of social distancing, Hunt’s Photo Education is presenting our new series of online classes! These courses will be shorter (about 1 hour), online versions of many classes that we currently offer, plus a few new ones, and include Q&A at the end.
Below the course description (but before registration) will be a short explanation on how the class will run.

Pets are loving, dedicated, and unique souls that make us smile after our long days at work, encourage us to get up on cold winter mornings, and stay embedded in our minds throughout our lives. Because of this, very few things melt the heart like a great photo of a pet, and photographing these loving companions can be a challenging endeavor.

Join dog owner Emily Hojnowski as she covers the best practices for taking better photographs of pets that will help you capture them at rest or in action.
This class will discuss both techniques on how to work with your camera as well as how to work with your dog. Among other things, we will discuss elements of:
•Exposure for the best brightness level of your subject
•Focusing techniques in order to get your subject sharp
•How to read animal behavior
•How to appropriately use positive reinforcement training with your model

Registering and what is needed
After you register for this class, you will receive a confirmation email that will include information about how to access the online class, including an online ID code that you will need to get into the class. Make sure to save this information. We will also send a reminder email a few days prior to the class time with that same information.

Layout of the class
The class will begin promptly at the time listed. The majority of the class–roughly 1 hour– will be a presentation on the topic, followed by a short Q&A. During the class, you are welcome to type in questions in the Question box on the left hand side of the screen. We will do our best to answer those questions, but if not, feel free to ask them at the end.

“You Are Being Recorded” (And Other Note Related Items)
We will be recording this class! The video will be available for download about 24-hours after the class for all attendees, so don’t worry about taking unending notes. We will send this link attendees to download and rewatch at any time. In addition to this, we will generally send out a PDF of the presentation (when applicable) and handouts on the topic. If handouts and PDFs are included, we will send it out with the link for the video.

Can’t attend the class?
If you can’t attend the class but still want to download the video, no problem: Just sign up for the class! You don’t need to attend and we will send the video and PDF link the next day!

Want to get this class after it’s been run?
If you want to purchase this or any other of the classes we have done, you can certainly do so. Just send us an email at classes@huntsphoto.com and we can send you the invoice. (We prefer having folks in our classes, but this option is available as well if you want to see it!)
