German photographer Christian Vieler has a gift—a gift for catching dogs in candid moments and turning it into photo magic. In this series, the photographer captures the exact moment right before a dog gets—or misses—a treat tossed in the air, and the results are animal-lover gold.
"Every shoot I am looking for that specific moment when the dog is looking as cute or funny as they can be," Vieler told Bored Panda. "That cannot be seen without the power of freezing motion – dog's faces with magnificent lineaments, telling us stories of panic, desire and joy."
Vieler has been photographing dogs since 2012. "I shoot a snapshot with every dog-guest in my studio. Some are pretty good, some not and a few are really gorgeous."
