Photos of Dogs Jumping with Colorful Powder Trails

Toronto-based animal photographer Jess Bell has been shooting a wonderful series of photos showing dogs jumping and leaving colorful powder trails in their wake. The photos aren’t the result of Photoshop compositing — they were actually shot with dogs and powder.

Bell says the work was inspired by photos captured by equine photographer Andrea Zachrau.

“I gathered together some talented dog-training friends and their awesome dogs for the project,” Bell tells PetaPixel. “I applied powder to the dogs then asked them to perform certain behaviors and I captured the resulting explosions on film.”

Bell is shooting the photos with a Nikon D5 and a 300mm f/2.8 lens.
