Lara, who runs her own pet photography service called Petograpiya, shared her memorable pet shoots, photography tips and advice to the group of cat and dog owners who came for her talk.
The Nikon 1 J5 was featured in Lara's talk as a camera model that pet lovers might find suitable for their needs. A practical and compact camera, the Nikon 1 J5 offers an option to shoot great pet photos without having to lug around a bulky and heavy camera.
Petography 101 ended with an impromptu "showing off" of pets from which two -- a Puspin cat and a Samoyed dog -- were declared crowd favorites.
Here are some highlights from the event as captured in photos.
