Apple to Host a Pet Photography Virtual Session

An excuse to take cute photos of your cat

Apple is hosting a virtual photography session this week to teach users how to capture Insta-worthy images of their pets. 

Professional photographer Jason Nocito is hosting a live virtual session on Thursday, from noon to 1 p.m. ET. Nocito will show attendees how to use their iPhones to take portrait photos of their furry friends.

Apple said the best way to capture pets on the iPhone is through the portrait mode on the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max. Nocito will show users how to apply the High-Key Light Mono mode to photos to get studio-quality pics of your cat or dog (or hedgehog). 

The iPhone 12 models’ cameras are better than any iPhone camera before them, with better low-light and nighttime shooting features and a more powerful telephoto lens, so you can capture detailed photos of your pets like never before. 

You can sign up for the online virtual session for free. 

The virtual class is part of the tech giant’s Today at Apple sessions, which recently became available to anyone from around the world to watch via Apple’s YouTube channel.

Guided by Apple Store Creatives, the sessions are designed to give viewers advice on creative projects ranging from photo and video to art and design. Offering approaches inspired by global artists selected by Apple, Apple pros will offer insights into some of the company’s favorite artists’ techniques.

Apple frequently hosts other virtual classes to teach people how to utilize their Apple devices in its Product Skills sessions. While these forums are great for people new to Apple products, they aren’t really geared towards seasoned Apple users.
