Photoship whiz creates amazing photos to save shelter animals

BUDAPEST, Hungary - A self-taught photographer in Hungary is using her technical skills to help homeless dogs get adopted across the world.

Sarolta Bán, a photographer known for her beautiful landscapes with dream-like features, is on a mission to put abandoned dogs in their own beautiful photos using her unique style for a project called "Help Dogs with Images."

“Abandoned dogs, sadly, have really few chances to appear on a photo that will help them get out of the shelter. A photo that stands out from the crowd, and 'speaks' to a person,” Bán wrote on the project's Facebook page. “I would really like to help sheltered animals and for sure a good picture can be worth a thousand words.”

Bán is asking her hundreds of thousands of Facebook fans to submit pictures of animals that need a home so she can create a photo montage with them, and hopefully help connect them to their future owner.

"There is a (low chance) for shelter animals to get adopted because they get little visibility," Bán told The Huffington Post in an email. "That's why it's a really great idea that everybody can be a hero with a single iPhone if they take a picture of a shelter dog, and upload it to the Internet."

She has already received images from around the world, including the U.S., Spain and Argentina. Users can submit their own high-resolution photos here.

Ban told Yahoo that she layers as many as 100 images to create a final product. The project ends on April 13 and anyone who adopts a pet from the project will received a signed photo of their animal from Ban.

    When 826 NYC, a nonprofit organization that fosters creative writing skills, asked children ages 9-12 to dream up the ultimate lemonade stand, the responses were huge. The winning project of  The Great Lemonation Imagination Collaboration was turned into a real lemonade stand complete with free lemonade in Manhattan's Flatiron District. The organization's members were also required to help run the stand that went up at Broadway and 23rd Street on Wednesday.

    Times Square characters want to be taken seriously and want their tips. The mostly immigrant workers are now called the Association of Artists United for a Smile and are fighting to protect their jobs, in light of a recent crackdown. Jorge Duran says he stands around for hours, sweating inside a costume, and says it is annoying and unfair if he poses for a good picture and gets nothing.
