Carli Davidson’s new book, Shake catches dogs in the act of shaking off water and slobber and is the continuation of a project that started with a handful of photos that went viral back 2011.
Davidson originally got the idea for Shake from her own dog, a mastiff that was constantly flinging his saliva all over the house. “I was always cleaning drool of the walls, my furniture and just about everything,” she says.
After getting a set of high-speed strobes that synched at up to 1/13,000th of a second, trying to freeze the flying drool seemed liked a good way to break in her new gear. Her dog, which she says can be quite sensitive, was too shy to pose in her studio so she had a friend bring in another mastiff as a kind of body-double. After shooting she looked at the images and immediately knew she was onto something.
