Shake: Slow Motion Photos Of Dogs Shaking Their Heads Published As Book

Just yesterday, award-winning U.S. photographer and animal trainer Carli Davidson published her book “Shake.” The much-awaited photo collection features close-up portraits of dogs in all of their drooling glory.

The series is hilarious because it gives us an unexpected (and funny-looking) glance at the subjects’ personalities. She gets the dogs to sit and shake for the shots by playing and rolling around with them and by wetting their heads so that they’d have a reason to shake. And that’s when the magic happens – lips smack, ears flop, and drool flies.

Davidson captures these weird and wonderful shots by shooting with specialized high-speed camera equipment in a studio setting – including a camera that shoots at 10 frames a second and lights that can illuminate a subject 13,000 times a second.

She began her work with animals at the Oregon Zoo by photographing birds of prey, and now does freelance work photographing animals for both commercial and individual clients. You can find a lot more of her great work with animals at her website.

We wrote about Davidson’s work with slobbering dogs a couple of years ago. Now that she’s published her book, we’ve taken this opportunity to revisit her work. Take a look!

    There’s no such thing as a “slow motion” photo.

    • Johan Abelsson

      Yes there ARE!
      If you shoot a photo on a video that runs slow-mo :)))

    • Rich

      Agreed – the video may be slow motion, but the photos are high-speed. These are not the same thing.
      The photos are superb, this article less so.

  • Candy

    I would agree with the point of being cruel the water on the ears and in the ears is just not a cool way to entertain. Go snap something that can defend against such abuse.

    “specialized high-speed camera equipment… including a camera that shoots at 10 frames a second”
    How is 10 frames a second “specialised”? My camera shoots 300 frames per second.
