I teach a photography class for seventh graders at Greater Atlanta Christian School. This class has pushed me in so many ways. I have learned numerous techniques for editing as well as photography in general. I have tried new types of photography such as light painting, food photography, and this semester pet photography. I challenged the students to focus on one type of photography for the remainder of the semester. For some reason, many of them decided pet photography should be their focus. Now, I know plenty of people make a good living with pet photography, but it is not personal specialty. Other than one newborn puppy shoot and a shoot for Tangled Tails Pet Salon, I haven’t had much experience with pet photography. I jumped at the chance to when my students volunteered to bring in their pets for our block period.
