German photographer Christian Vieler is back again with more hilarious photos of dogs trying to catch treats (see previous post here). The photographer captures the precise moment right before a dog gets – or misses- a treat thrown in the air, and the facial expressions of doggos, ranging from exuberance to confusion, are nothing short of epic.
Though a dog has around 100 different facial expressions, they are often quite subtle, and not so easily distinguishable for us, humans. But with the help of freeze-frame Vieler has managed to capture the many grins of these funny dogs.
“Every shoot I am looking for that specific moment when you can snap the funniest or the cutest dog grins," - Vieler told Bored Panda. "That cannot be seen without the power of freezing motion – dog’s faces with magnificent lineaments, telling us stories of panic, desire, and joy.”
Vieler, who is also a journalist, has been taking pictures of dogs since 2012, the year he purchased a new camera. “I shoot a snapshot with every dog-guest in my studio. Some pics of dogs are pretty good, some not and a few are really gorgeous.”
