If These Photos of Dogs Underwater Don’t Make You Smile, Nothing Will (Photo Gallery)

Seth Casteel is a photographer based out of Chicago and Los Angeles who specializes in taking pictures of animals.

Though he photographs all types of animals, dogs are one of his favorite subjects. A few years back, he shot a series of photos of dogs playing underwater. Check out the pictures below (click an image to enlarge):

The success of the photos landed him a book deal, and the photo-book “Underwater Dogs” was released in October of 2012.

Casteel’s photography company, Little Friend’s Photography, specializes in lifestyle pet photography. Casteel describes this art form as,

“embracing the at-ease mentality of pets on location in the natural surroundings.”

This Guy’s Black Light Bodyscapes Might Be the Coolest Art I’ve Ever Seen (Photo Gallery)

“Cherish something different.”

This is the motto of John Poppleton, one of the most creative photographers and artists you will ever hear of.

John combines UV paints with black light photography to create breathtaking bodyscape images on his human canvases. You can check out some of his work below (click an image to enlarge).

John calls black light photogrpahy the “fourth dimension”. It allows him to use an invisible light source to turn his human subjects into the light source, which gives his photos amazing vibrance and depth.
