Unleashed Edit: Poppy's Splashtacular Action Shot

View All Edits

Photographing dogs in action can result in some super cool images, but can also be random, messy and involve a little bit of luck!

You might also end up with an image where the action is perfect, but other aspects of the image need some extra work, like this shot of Poppy where her mum needs to be removed from the background.

This edit covers the process of removing Poppy’s mum from behind the splash - not an easy one and quite a few steps involved, but the end result is totally worth it!
