Pet Portraits...the start of our community service project!

We are going to take photos that were taken by our High School Photography class and create art work from the pictures in wild and colorful art for the Leon County Animal Shelter. In doing this lesson we will teach about other artists and use the elements and principles to help with our details.

Do you love animals as much as I do? I saw this on Twitter last year:

The Humane Society of Utah, an animal rescue and adoption organization in the U.S., is back with more wonderful shelter dog photobooth pics. Their ongoing project was started with the intent of casting these dogs in a more positive light to help them find forever homes.

With the help of pet photographer Guinnevere Shuster (a professional photographer who also helps black dogs get adopted), the Center aims to show these dogs the way they’d really look if you allowed them into your life – out from behind the metal bars that contain them at the shelters they live in.

These photos capture these dogs’ individual personalities, and it looks like the approach works – the dogs that get the photobooth treatment get a lot of attention, and many of them get adopted as well.

You get the idea? Well look at the photos that were taken:

 Ok, so our Upper School Photography class just took a field trip. They made photos which you can view at this link:

Stay tuned for more post on this!
