While most animal photographers aim to overwhelm the viewers with “curtness” of their dog photographs, Ontario-based photographer Jess Bell decided to take a different route. In her latest series of photographs, she wanted to represent dogs as “super” creatures that look like they came straight out of some sci-fi movie.
The way Bell managed to achieve this effect is by having dogs jump through colorful clouds of powder and then snapping the photo at the right moment. The result were amazing photos that seem like they were engineered with some photo-manipulation software. But that isn’t the case.
“These crazy colors and dynamic swirls are captured in-camera in real time and on location,” – explains Bell. “As a result, every single image is unique and highlights the amazing differences between how dogs of various breeds and body shapes move. The powder acts as a perfect action amplification device.”
