This week we'd like to highlight Chicago based photographer Paul Octavious's project "ResHue Dogs."

In collaboration with Chicago's largest no-kill animal shelter, PAWS and inspired by his lighting from an earlier project for NBC, Paul decided to help adopt out as many adorable animals as possible by showing them off using creative colorful lighting with the help of his Profoto D2's and colored gels. 

 

 

 

 

 

Chicago's shelters are always teeming to brim with animals that need homes. Paul plans to continue this project to help save as many animals as possible. If you're in the Chicago area and considering adopting or maybe you simply want to help, you should visit their website or donate!
