Photographer Turns Dogs into Magical Creatures Using Colored Powder

Canadian photographer Jess Bell takes unique photos of animals. She started a new project and decided to experiment with colored powder. She took action photos of dogs covered in powder, and the result are excellent and breathtaking.

The colours and swirls are captured in real time, and this makes every single image unique. It also highlights all the differences between the dogs of different breeds. The powder plays the role of an action amplification device. The colors were not picked randomly, but she considered the personalities of the pets as well as their appearance. This was to ensure that the colors match the fur.

She has taken pictures of so many dogs, and the pets have been cooperative. The pictures freeze in time to show us how amazing these creatures are. They always make their owners happy by being lively, goofy and even stubborn. You can help but love them.

S L I C E Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever © Jess Bell Photography Owner: Chelsey Protulipac 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. She has her MOTCH (master obedience trial championship) in the CKC which she earned last year. She has 13 High in Trial wins and many High in Class wins from her obedience competitions. And the best part? Her training was done via shaping & clicker training. This is my kinda training! — My holi agility photos are now available to clients! And holi isn't just for agility, but disc, bite sports, fetch and more. Contact me for personalized sessions or if you're interested in arranging something for a group/club. I wanted to make sure that anyone who has enjoyed my recent coloured powder photographs knew about Andrea Zachrau. She's the progenitor of the style. Please go check her out and give her and her gorgeous work some love. <3 https://www.facebook.com/aztierfotografie @andreazachrau_photography Share if you like!

C O H E N © Jess Bell Photography Owner: Me! Jess Bell You know the saying, "the shoemaker's children go barefoot"? That's how I feel sometimes when it comes to photos of my own girl, Cohen. I find it really tough to take photos of her because I rarely have help to handle her while I hide behind my lens. Not to mention, I'm pretty choosy when it comes to photos of her so simple snaps rarely do it for me. But not today! Many thanks to the wonderful participants who came out to my holi agility photo shoot this weekend. Not only did they help me set up/tear down my equipment in record time, but they helped handle my crazy girl so I could take a few photos. This photo is definitely going to be printed on metal and hung in my studio! (Let's sort of ignore her not-exactly ideal jumping form compared to the other attendees. 😅 It's been a while since we practiced.) I'm not surprised that some people think that the powder is added in post-production. But this effect is captured in-camera and on-set! — My holi agility photos are now available to clients!
