Dogs and Birds and Things That Go

presented by Amy Johnson

of Focus Your Art Photo Education

​Join us for Amy’s workshop which includes information on gear, camera settings, and autofocus techniques that have helped her build a 20-year career as a dog sports photographer. ​

People love to compete with their dogs, and the number of dog sports has exploded over the past two decades. At many of these competitions, you will find a professional photographer hard at work in the background, capturing each and every exhibitor and their furry team mate as they perform for the judges. If you’ve seen those photographers and wondered what is involved, this seminar is for you! ​​Amy will also share techniques for capture of other moving subjects. Don’t miss this opportunity!

It is online, there is no charge and it will be hosted by the presenter. If you are logged  in with your membership, you will see a link below.  Use this link to register directly with Amy.
