Critter Demo with Dennis Sheridan

One of my favorite shooting experiences is the famous “critter demo” put on by my friend, Dennis Sheridan. Dennis is a well-known photographer, entomologist, and small animal wrangler who shares his knowledge and animals with schools, workshops, and even movie productions. I’m going to be posting more images from these shoots and talking about lighting and wrangling, so stay tuned.
