Lesson one: Creating your image

Creating your image takes more than just camera skills and luck.  You need to plan out your images before you photograph them.  In this video, I go over some of the things to think about when you are creating your images.

Lesson two: Equipment

In this video I go over the different options you have for studio equipment including power packs, continuous lighting, and monolights.  We also discuss light modifiers, reflectors and gobos.

Lesson three: Lighting for Fur

In this lesson, I go over how to light for fur using different techniques, where to place pets, how to position your lights and more.

Lesson four: Setting up your lights

In this lesson, I show you how I set up my lights in my studio, the equipment I use, and how I adjust lighting and settings.

Lesson five: Working with 1 light and a cat

In this video, I show you how to work with one light in studio (which is usually my set up).  Our model is also a cat, so we talk about how to work with cats, what tricks to use, and how to best light his black fur.
