Capturing the perfect animal photos takes practice, patience, and technique. After learning some terms and techniques several live animals will be brought to the studio classroom for you to practice and hone in your new skills. Explore different backdrops, capture active and slower moving animals, and meet the animal models! Afterwards, upload your photos and experience an artistic critique of your work as well as gain advice for further developing your animal portrait skills.
