Trick photography or method photography is just simply splendid at times. These photographers use some methods to get the best photos, be that of humans or animals. This professional photographer Jess Bell, a Canadian, has invented the method of throwing color powder on dogs and getting the best pictures and it turns out to be the best job.
“I recently organized some of my very talented dog-owning friends (and their exceptional pups of course) to participate in colored powder photo shoots in order to experiment with a new technique I wanted to try out. The results are bright, crisp and dynamic! These photos are turning heads all over the internet.”
The craziness of swirling dynamic colors turned out to be phenomenally exceptional and the photo shoot was done in real time and on location. The results of every simple image show the variation in the movement of different dog breeds. It clearly shows how each of them is different from the other on the mobility scale.
Rush – Border Collie
RUSH! And what a rush to photograph this beautiful guy. (See what I did there? 😛 It’s okay to groan a little.) When I found out that beautiful Rush was attending my holi agility shoot, I knew I’d have to shoot him in red.
Fire and Ice – Mix & Coolie
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice. -Robert Frost
Style – Border Collie
“I had an amazing (and slightly frozen) photo shoot this weekend with some insanely talented agility dogs and my holi powder. The powder compliments their movement and power so perfectly. I love how it pours off Style’s body here and she powers over a jump” Jess Bell
Slice – Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever
“For this photo, I just lit Slice on fire and pointed her at a jump. (Hah. Okay, maybe not. But I LOVE how the orange powder billows off dogs like flames.) Slice is an enormously talented young Toller…..”Jess Bell
Nyero – Mudi
Lottie – Border Collie
True – Australian Shepherd
“I love how the powder clearly shows True’s trajectory as he jumps. It’s so perfect for amplifying action and capturing the elegance of movement. “Jess Bell
