If you have every tried to photograph a dog, you know how difficult it is. They twitch, they yawn, they walk away. Jessica Trinh's portraits of Chuppy, a golden retriever, and shelter dog Daisy look effortless. "Photography makes you look at things differently," the 17-year-old writes on her blog. "You notice rain drops and the way the sun kisses the Earth….There is no time to waste because there is an urgency to capture each loving gesture, smile, and laugh in both humans and animals."
