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.
