A photographer who specializes in capturing glorious moments of dogs catching treats in mid-air has taken over the internet again with a new set of pictures.
Christian Vieler is a photographer who finds joy in capturing dogs, specifically their silly reactions, on camera. He has been photographing dog models since 2013 and has even managed to collect the best examples in a book called Treat!
Speaking of his work to the Bored Panda, Christian said:
“I started doing the treat shots by accident and chance. I had never seen anything like it before, but I didn’t plan on doing that kind of photography either! Back in 2013 I got myself a flash with a big battery pack for outdoor use.
“The day my new toy arrived was a rainy one, so I started discovering all flash options in my living room – especially the capability of freezing motion. I wanted to use my own dog Lotte for my test shoots.
“The problem was: She was (and fortunately still is) a very chilled labrador and didn’t move in front of me. So what gets a lab moving better than a treat?!
“I started throwing and hit my camera button at the same time … just to find out the right settings for a ‘motion freezing setup.’ Days later – when I cleaned my hard drives – I recognized how funny some results turned out. That was the birth of ‘Dogs Catching Treats.’”
