In a photo series entitled Zen Dogs, an Australian photographer was able to capture dogs looking peaceful and calm.
“Dogs don’t sweat the small stuff. They are spontaneous and carefree,” says Alex Cearns, a professional pet and wildlife photographer who is the creative director of Australia’s Houndstooth Studio.
In the series, Labradors, German Shepherds and other dog breeds appear at bliss, serene and content – a heartwarming state in which most dog owners probably imagine their animals live all the time.
It looks like quite a challenge but Cearns knows exactly what to do – she counts the number of seconds between blinks.
She can take more than 300 photos of one dog in one hour-long session.
“To be honest, I can really only catch the photo if [the dogs] are relaxed and peaceful — so each photo is an authentic photo,” Cearns told The Huffington Post
