Weirdly creative photographer hurls water balloons at people for the sake of art!

 

This is interesting. Tim Tadder, a photographer by profession, collected some amazing bald men and women and… hurled balloons at their heads for the sake of art! Indeed, he took pictures of the explosion of water at various intervals. How he names this project? “Water Wigs”.

Tadder’s assistants did their best to carefully place or drip water balloons of different shapes and sizes on the model’s heads in order to capture the ideal water wig shot.

 

For some people this might seem pretty easy, but in reality it isn’t. Tadder’s technique requires that the studio be completely dark (indeed, even a small flashlight can create problems) and althogh it might by a great fun experience for his models to have balloons thrown hard at their heads, Tadder eventually decided to begin taping thumbtacks to their bald heads or bald caps! “Why?” I can hear you asking. To help create the perfect pop!

Here are his awesome results!

Using a laser and sound trigger to capture the right moments for each subject, he created just the right head of hair that fit best with each face.

He chose to work with triads of colors to create images that are arresting and amusing at the same time.

It’s a mix of fun, technical and complex.
